Callie Martin

Callie Martin fell in love with Armstrong at first sight.

“I knew it would provide many opportunities for me in and out of the classroom,” she says.

It was important to her to be in a program that supports her goal of working in a writing field. Enter Armstrong’s Professional Communications English track, a perfect fit with real-life, practical applications, coupled with a campus that offers numerous internship and freelance opportunities.

“I feel like I have learned so many skills that can be leveraged for employment,” she says. “And more importantly, I feel like I have learned how to write with a purpose.”

Currently working as an intern in the marketing and community investments departments at the United Way of the Coastal Empire in Savannah, Martin’s work is meaningful. Through this internship, she has been able to work on the organization’s annual campaign, which raises funds that are distributed throughout the community.

Martin’s positive experience with United Way and her time at Armstrong have convinced her to commit her life to public service.

“I plan to live and write with the purpose of social change,” she says. “My dream is to impact the future of youth through education and youth development programs."
