My name is Michelle Ailport, and I am a summer audience engagement intern at the Wall Street Journal. I am a recent graduate of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

With a creative eye and a knack for audience engagement, I have interned as a digital producer at the Arizona Republic. I was a summer intern with USA TODAY. In this role, I served as a digital producer for Gannett’s properties in Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington. I’ve also interned at Arizona PBS, the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office, BLOOM365 and SPOT 127 Youth Media Center.

In my spare time, I enjoy roller skating, wandering around plant stores and sipping an occasional cup of chai.
