Meeting The Interns : Michelle Sherman


Greetings, my name is Michelle Sherman, and I’m currently a Senior at Galway High School. I’m the President of GSA, a member of National Honor Society, and a staff member for Impressions. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, and watching anime. I’m an extreme nerd, if you question any of my friends, they’ll inform you that reading is more of an addiction for me. On average I read about four hours every day. Reading has always been a way for me to relieve stress, and to drift off into another world of imagination. This hobby of mine is very special to me, I hope to carry it off into future careers. I’ve also been studying Japanese whenever I can, so now I can now properly introduce myself in Japanese! 

For four years, I’ve been taking business classes, to enter the newly offered Business Pathway at graduation. A requirement to enter the pathway is to be in an internship for a full year. Thus, I decided to intern under Mrs. Decker for the Junior High EMC. From my experiences under my internship so far, my writing and editing skills have improved greatly. It has increased my confidence within my writing, and I’m thrilled to continue to improve myself as I journey throughout my internship. My internship will most likely influence my future career;  considering that I’d like to become a business translator. A business translator is someone who professionally translates business documents, emails, ect. from multiple languages. As a business translator, one must have well-developed writing and editing skills, which will definitely be nurtured from my internship. 

The colleges that interest me are SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Binghamton and FMCC. I plan to major in either Business Communications/Management or International Business. I’d also like a minor in Japanese, to be officially documented as bilingual. I also chose these colleges, because I’m interested in the one of the programs that they offer, where selected students can spend a semester in Japan. Although my dream job would be a famous author of mystical novels, I look forward to the future with an open mind. I await my adventure throughout college! I wish to thank all the teachers, family and friends who supported me throughout school, I owe you my complete gratitude. Truly, thank you.
