Guillermo Osorio is a DME writing intern from San Antonia, Texas. Guillermo was in the Marine Corps and Army from 2008-2009, and was also awarded the Army Achievement Award, Army Commendation Medal, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal and the National Defense Service Medal.
Guillermo found out about the DME Internship through his university’s website and thought joining would look good with his communications degree that he received from Ohio State University and the University of Maryland Global Campus. Guillermo works on the Borne the Battle Podcast and finds his work meaningful in many ways to veterans like him. The Borne the Battle podcast invites veterans to be interviewed by the host, Tanner Iskra, that is later reviewed by the transcription team and Guillermo and other writing interns who listen to the podcast and come up with a story to be put in the Borne the Battle blog.
Guillermo is a member of the Student Veterans of America, which is an organization of veterans that have served in the military and want to transfer some of their academic skills into the professional and academic world. The group instills leadership and communications skills to their many chapters in academic institutions.
One of the things that Guillermo says will help new interns who want to join the DME Internship is to “make the most of the experience, make the most of the work and the learning as much of whatever program you’re trained in.” The experience of this internship will help you not only in the classroom but later on in life in whatever field that looks for the experience and skills Guillermo and others have gained through their dedication with the internship every day.
