The Upper Room is often blessed to have dedicated and talented interns and students who spend a summer or school semester—or two—working in various areas of our ministry. In the summer of 2015, we had six interns, and we want to publicly say “thank you” to each of them for the work and energy they each brought to our Nashville, Tennessee offices.
Today, we celebrate Jern-lyn Chong!
Lyn is a junior majoring in English and Psychology at John Brown University in Arkansas. This summer, she worked with our book marketing team, where she has completed a variety of projects including copy-editing book flyers, creating video tutorials to show customers how to download e-pubs, and researching product launches. She said, “Being able to work alongside the marketing team has been truly rewarding and so much fun.” Lyn’s said she loved the positive working environment, and enjoyed working with people who were always ready to listen, encourage, and challenge her. “I never once felt like I was ‘just’ an intern.”
Lyn said she was reluctant about giving up her entire summer break and her one chance to fly home to Malaysia this year, but her work has been enjoyable and meaningful. She has appreciated the encouragement and challenge.
THANK YOU LYN!
