Seafarer Leah Feldman ’14 (“Ocean Reveries”) spent last spring semester with the Williams-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies Program. The English major has interned at an international literary agency, an art gallery, and an eyewear company. Off hours from school, she’s a barista at the Barge Canal Coffee Company and admits a penchant for watching New Girl and How I Met Your Mother.

  After two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Suriname, John H. Williams ’10 (“Saramaccan Serenade”) has settled in a decidedly chillier part of the world — teaching math at the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid, N.Y. The former international relations major and economics minor once worked on a cheese farm in the French Alps and is known to whistle while he works.


  Laura D’Angelo ’14, one of our awesome interns this summer, loves baking (“any treat involving coconut”), tennis, and uncovering hidden gems in upstate New York, from ice cream shops to scenic byways. The classics major from Woodbridge, Conn., is a Maroon-News copy editor and has worked with Colgate’s Consumer Bankruptcy Law Project and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. She’s pursuing career opportunities in business and law.

  Our other summer intern extraordinaire, Kellyann Hayes ’16, plays trumpet in the university orchestra and pep band, and switches to baritone horn for the wind ensemble. Her other talents include making apple cinnamon pancakes and the ability to lick her own elbow. A Long Island native, she’s an admission tour guide and plans to major in English and sociology.
