's Internship Project

Samantha spent her semester developing an interface that would allow you to discover, research, and save information on National Parks throughout the USA.

Q:  How’d you get here?

I'm a rising senior at the University of Pittsburgh studying Information Science. I took a web design class in high school that started my passion for technology and led me to go into college majoring in Computer Science. After two years, I realized I missed the design aspect of tech and switched to Information Science so that I could focus more heavily on web design and development. With this revelation, I began to look at Pittsburgh companies for web design internships and come across Responsival! I'm looking forward to growing my design skills with this amazing team.

Q:  Favorite project with Responsival?

I haven't worked on any projects yet but I'm excited to get started!

Q:  What inspires your work?

Discovering what's possible and how I can do it myself. I love seeing how projects grow over time and how my skills can go into making some pretty cool things.

Q:  What do you listen to while you work?

Q:  What do you do outside of work?

I like to spend time outside, read, and listen to tech podcasts. During the school year, I'm a piccolo/flute player in Pitt's marching and concert bands - music is a huge part of my life!

Q:  Is a hotdog a sandwich?

According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, the hot dog is "truly a category unto its own." I take that to mean it does not fit well in any existing categories, and therefore, I have to conclude that a hot dog is not a sandwich.
