Meet Our Summer Editorial Interns

 In Culture

As summer comes to a close we’d like to highlight some of our interns who have kept ALIVE ticking the last two months. Whether they were writing, fact checking, copy editing or everything in between, these four advanced their careers with valuable time spent in the ALIVE offices. Meet our summer editorial team.


Name: Caroline Ingalls Ludeman
School: Washington University in St. Louis
Graduation Year: 2016
Major: English
Minor: Psychology
Future Career Goal: “To tell someone’s story—whether through writing or film. I love sharing an interesting life, accomplishment or movement that someone might not have heard about.”
One Thing You’ve Learned: “That every little job is vital to the bigger operation, a positive attitude and patience will get you a long way.”
One Thing People Would Be Surprised To Know About You: “I’m closely related to Laura Ingalls Wilder. It’s where I get my middle name.”


Name: Jacob S. Keane
School: Mizzou

Major: Journalism
Future Career Goal: “I’d like to be writing for a west coast publication.”
One Thing You’ve Learned: “St. Louis is infinitely more busy and innovative than I ever imagined.”
One Thing People Would Be Surprised To Know About You: “I’m head-over-heels in love with Delta blues music.”



Name: Sarah Kloepple
School: Mizzou
Graduation Year: 2016
Major: Journalism
Minor: English
Future Career Goal: “I’d like to be a writer for a major entertainment magazine or website and someday be the next great television critic.”
One Thing You’ve Learned: “I’ve learned how big feature stories come together. From the interviews, to the photo shoots, to the writing; it’s really great how the multiple departments here contribute and collaborate with each other.”
One Thing People Would Be Surprised To Know About You: “I’m a pretty big music fiend. I still buy vinyl records and I’m always searching for a great lesser-known band to listen to.”



Name: Elizabeth Semko
School: Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville
Graduation Year: 2015
Major: Mass Communications  in Print and Electronic Journalism
Minor: Creative Writing and Dance
Future Career Goal: “I want to write for a magazine—whether it be a travel magazine, a dance magazine or a lifestyle publication like ALIVE.”
One Thing You’ve Learned: “Other than learning all the ins and outs that make a publication possible, I’ve realized how exciting our city truly is. Whoever says there’s nothing going on in St. Louis has obviously never looked at the ALIVE events calendar!”
One Thing People Would Be Surprised To Know About You: “I’m obsessed with The Radio City Rockettes. I saw them on TV for the first time when I was about four years old and have wanted to be one of them ever since.”
