Post-graduation, Schossow landed an internship at National Public Radio (NPR), an achievement she credits to the experience she gained while in Eau Claire. As an intern, she helped cover stories like the Boy Scout Ineligible Volunteer Files and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. As a result of her performance as an intern, Schossow was able to get a job as a research assistant for an NPR reporter.
Schossow encourages students to always pursue their dreams. She said, “The worst thing anyone can do to you is say no, and that’s okay because then you say, ‘All right, this isn’t the right avenue.’ Find another one.”
