One Rambler balances a long-distance publishing internship while studying abroad

One Rambler balances a long-distance publishing internship while studying abroad

Though rising junior Megan Prokott hasn't even wrapped up her study abroad adventures in London, she has already begun her summer publishing internship in the US. At Blueberry Lane Books, Megan reads books before they hit the shelves and creates discussion questions published with the text.

Megan is pictured above at King's Cross St. Pancras train station (look familiar Harry Potter fans?) with her Kindle, which can always be found by her side, and one of her favorite books, B.J. Novak's One More Thing.

Year/Major: Junior, English and Criminal Justice

What are you up to this summer?

Moving home from London to Chicago, working for LUC, and interning for Blueberry Lanes Books.

What are you most excited about?

Treating Chicago as a continuation of studying abroad and exploring my favorite city with new eyes.

How will your summer adventures add to your Loyola experience?

Getting to know my Chicago community during the academic off-season will enhance my experience with my Loyola community during the school year!

What did you miss the most about Chicago while you were in London?

I missed the always-entertaining Red Line riders, my favorite reading spot in front of Madonna della Strada facing Lake Michigan, deep dish Giordano's pizza, and the Trump Tower.

What is your Chipotle order?

I hate Chipotle; Flaco's Tacos pork verde tacos all day.
