If you have read an article on the Rockefeller Center’s website, you have likely seen the work of Jinmyoung (Jin) Lee ’16, Student Program Assistant for Communications and Student Outreach.  In this position, Jin assists in reviewing, editing, and posting the multiple articles submitted for publication to the website each week. “I depend heavily upon the work students like Jin perform for the Center,” says Elizabeth Celtrick, Assistant Director, and Jin’s immediate supervisor. “Her work goes far in helping us ‘show and tell’ the story of the Rockefeller Center.”

Jin began working at Rocky in the fall of her junior year. Her first position was as the Student Program Assistant for the First-Year Fellows, working with Robin Frye, one of the Center’s Program Officers. She applied for the communications position, because she wanted to experience a difference function at the Center. In addition to liking being “the first one to know what’s going on around campus,” her favorite part of the job is communicating with the staff and other Rocky students, noting in particular that it was “really nice to get to know some of the Rockefeller Leadership Fellows who graduated in 2015.” 

Before she worked at Rocky, Jin used to take photos for The Dartmouth.  She noted that that many of her fellow photographers at The Dartmouth also work or have worked for Rocky.  “I basically saw the same people, and that was super helpful because we already knew each other,” Jin said of the ease in transitioning into her work at Rocky. 

Besides her involvement with Rocky, Jin is a busy Dartmouth student; she is a math and classics double major, who works in the jewelry studio and on multiple research projects.  She is unsure of her plans following graduation, but is grateful for the connections and writing proficiencies she has gained at Rocky.
