BIC's Latest MAIP Superstar: Sean Feol-Baugh

2/09/2017 Unknown 0 Comments

BIC is pleased to announce another MAIP All-Star: Sean Feol-Baugh has been selected to work in the Account Management Department at McCann New York this summer. This is the fourth year (out of four) that one of our BIC students has earned a spot in this prestigious 4A's Multicultural Internship Program

Sean's multicultural background makes him the ideal candidate for MAIP. Having had the benefit of living in another country, he brings a unique perspective to how he engages people and his work. Recently, Sean has been involved in Workforce Development, more specifically as an Instructor/ Counselor in the Second Life Job Training Program at Housing Works. Being an advocate for social change and the education of the underprivileged, Sean is a humble individual who is determined to help those less fortunate than he.

Originally from Jamaica, Sean has lived in two countries and travelled extensively which has broadened his perspective and increased his ability to learn from others. He is poised to make the most of his time in the BIC program and make an impact on the industry.

Each year, undergraduate and graduate students are selected for the 10-week paid summer internship at a 4A's member advertising agency. Students gain practical work experience, establish key industry contacts, and become better prepared to land a full-time job in communications when they graduate. Upon completion of the program, interns become members of the MAIP Alumni Association, a close-knit family of over 2,600 MAIP graduates that fosters the development of future MAIP interns as well as the professional development of the program's alumni.

Sean joins Melissa Julien (BIC ’17) who interned last summer at DigitasLBi, Chris Villanueva (BIC '15) who is now a copywriter at DigitasLBi, and Ivan Ramirez (BIC ’16) as BIC beneficiaries of the 4A's MAIP. Because most graduate students are active professionals, few BICsters apply for and receive this honor. Nonetheless, BIC is proud to have had a MAIP recipient every year since BIC launched in 2013.
