I'm very pleased to introduce Shelagh Dolan, who will be interning for UHub this summer. One of her main assignments will be covering the Olympics. She's fluent in Spanish, so we've already mapped out a couple of long-term assignments involving the city's Hispanic communities, but if you have any suggestions for stories touching those communities that are going uncovered, let us know!
As a grumpy old editor, naturally the very first thing I had her do was compose her own bio:
Shelagh (shay-luh) Dolan is an exceptionally Irish grad student pursuing a master's degree in Professional Writing for New Media at Regis College in Weston, Ma.
Dolan graduated from Providence College in 2012, earning a B.A. in Spanish with a minor in Writing. She did the Corporate America thing in the Back Bay for two years before enrolling in graduate school to pursue her passion for writing.
Originally from Westford, MA, Dolan is an active member of the volleyball community, competing and coaching in greater Boston at the high school and collegiate levels year-round.
Dolan loves cats, concerts and coffee. She was at the Red Sox game when Jason Varitek punched A-Rod in the face and wishes she could have live-tweeted it. Follow her on Twitter for stories and general social commentary.
