CIERRA GROSS — UNCG STUDENT, ABC INTERN

BY BRIAN CLAREY

Cierra Gross is a UNCG senior we found at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last week, working as a runner for ABC News. “It’s just getting things for people, “ she explained, though she says she recently got a promotion and had been hiring new runners for the last two days of the event. She’s a political science major, andf said she got the gig through a professor, David Holian. “It’s like a once-in-alifetime thing,” she said. “You get credentials, you get to go where other people can’t.” She also says she has scored an internship this summer with ABC White House correspondent Jake Tapper in Washington DC, which is the fastest trip up the low rungs of the lader we’ve ever seen. If her career continues on this trajectory, she’ll have Tapper’s job by Christmas.
