Hello from Sarah, the new intern at Culture
My name is Sarah Jung and I’m lactose intolerant.
No, not really. Actually, kind of. It’s a placebo-induced intolerance; one that I’ve been trying to overcome ever since I found out my mom only told us we’re allergic to dairy because she (still) believes it’s bad for our health. Ah, those cheeseless, everything-less pizza days. And yet, despite any faux-intolerance, I’ve always loved milky coffee, found myself lingering at the cheese counter in delis and supermarkets on more than a few occasions, and quickly made a habit of trading my bean burrito for string cheese during lunchtime.
Here are a couple non-cheese related things about me: “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)” by Arcade Fire, “The Moon” by The Swell Season, and “Something Beautiful” by Alexi Murdoch are some of my favorite songs. I have a fear of sneezing in the car.
I’m twenty-one years old now, finishing up my English degree at UC Davis, and so excited to be working for Will as a social media intern. What I’m hoping to gain from my time with the magazine is, what else but knowledge of the cheese world that I’ve very honestly always wanted to have.
