The DME internship thrives due to the dedication and skills of our interns. In these posts highlighting the work of individual interns, you can get a sneak peek into what they do, how it’s developing them, and whether DME might be a good fit for you too! If you’re interested in joining us, please see the link at the bottom of the blog post.
In this intern spotlight we highlight the work of Jaasmine Stephens, an intern in the Writing Department. Jaasmine shares how she has been able to improve her writing skills as she works to tell the stories of Veterans, all while interning remotely.

What kind of contributions do you make to the DME team and their goals?
I contribute write-ups about Veterans who have served in different branches of the military. I also investigate and shape a narrative about the extraordinary lives these soldiers have lead.
How does your work at DME help you reach your professional goals?
This program consistently challenges my writing skills and brings to light how telling the story of someone’s life is more than just putting words on paper. Our stories try to capture the feeling of pride and determination that these Veterans experience.
Why would you recommend DME to others?
This program gives its interns the ability to understand what it means to be a part of a team, how to contribute quality work and take on responsibilities that extend beyond simple assigned tasks. Most importantly, we are taught how to work remotely using software to interact and create stories worth telling and projects that aim to help populations in need. A lot of these skills are currently needed in the workforce and DME is definitely the place to acquire these skills.
