SBS in Boston Student Spotlight: UMass SBS Economics major Megan Harvey’23

Megan participated in the spring 2022 SBS in Boston semester, where she interned with Golden Thread Agency, a boutique PR and marketing agency, founded and run by an SBS alum, that specializes in brand building, media relations, thought leadership, and communications strategy.  Megan was a member of their PR intern team, working on a variety of project, focusing on products and events for young families.  Here’s what Megan had to say about her experience:

“As a senior at UMass Amherst, I have been most grateful for my experience with the SBS in Boston program. The SBS in Boston program allowed me to meet a lot of friends as well as find an internship in a field I knew I would want to work in. I interned for Golden Thread Agency and now I work for Golden Thread agency part time and will work for them when I graduate. I do PR work with them and the CEO is a UMass Amherst alum.

I spend a lot of time running her Instagram, as well as working with some of her clients like Hood Dairy and Modelo Health, which is a new woman’s health app. Over Christmas break I am going to table for Hood Dairy (at an event in Boston) and I am very excited for this. I enjoyed going to the Mount Ida campus in the spring for my class and fell in love with the Boston area.  I cannot recommend the SBS in Boston program enough.”
