For the summer of 2016, DASI Solutions hired two interns, Braden Cleary and Katherine Winter. Working directly with both of them, I got to discover some interesting things about each; here is what I found out about Braden.
The first thing I learned was that Braden’s name is actually pronounced (Bray-den), after calling him (Brad-en) for a week. Braden Graduated from Bloomfield High School in 2014 and is now going into his junior year at Michigan State University in the fall, majoring in marketing. His current role at DASI is doing the marketing for the annual Dream Cruise party, this year on August 18th. Braden was excited about his internship at DASI because of the hands-on opportunity in the marketing department and having the chance to show his creativity.
