Meet the new Media and Marketing Intern

Hello everyone, and welcome to 1789's first official blog post (and my first blog post as the new media and marketing intern). My name is Rachel Schmitt and I'm a rising senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I'm majoring in Journalism and Mass Communication with a specialization in public relations. I previously worked as a senior writer for The Daily Tar Heel and a promotions intern at iHeartMedia. I'm currently serving as the Marketing Director for UNC Student Television. 

As the new media and marketing intern, I'll assist in managing 1789's social media, website, and blog, as well as developing strategies for on-campus marketing. I'm extremely excited for the opportunity to work with 1789 Venture Lab and all of the awesome entrepreneurs who come through the office. I'm looking forward to being able to share with you what 1789 and its ventures comes up with next!
