Sean is interning at The Elkhart Truth over the summer. In his blog, he'll write about his experiences through the internship, how his editing skills have improved and his transition from high school to the real world.

Sean wishes to continue his career in writing, focusing on spoken word poetry. In the last four years, Sean has written more than 130 poems. He plans to hopefully help the world with his words.

He may not really be a paperboy, but he certainly plans to deliver.

Learning from people by working with them face-to-face.

Good customer service isn’t easy, but the rewards can be great.

Working The Elkhart Truth booth at the fair was an amazing experience. I met some awesome people and got a feel for how the newspaper helps the community. I also got to experience how employees of The Elkhart Truth handle complaints with a customer when they’re face-to-face with them.

I would have to say my favorite part of working at the booth would have to be seeing children's faces light up when they won something on our prize wheel. It was a good feeling knowing that someone's day was made better; it brings joy to me when others are happy.

The prize wheel consisted of a variety of prizes such as sunglasses, t-shirts, raffle tickets — for a golf card, a $100 gift card and a Ruthmere family passes — and a free three month subscription. In order to spin the wheel, people had to bring in an ad from the newspaper that had a specific ferris wheel on it. They could spin the wheel as many times depending on the amount of ads they brought in. For example, if I brought in three ads, I got three spins. We also had some free items like sunscreen, mints, fans and tattoos. We also had a small set up to take pictures at.

The Goshen Noon Kiwanis Club had some good food, but don't take food reviews from me. Overall, the fair had great entertainment, cool people and a nice atmosphere to be working in. I would do it again, if given the opportunity.
