Breaking Down Barriers: A Letter from Intern Alekhya Pulamarasetti

Dear Dominique,

I would like to thank you deeply for the wonderful, wonderful opportunity you have created which led me to intern with Sourcebooks.

Tomorrow is my last day at work and I would like to tell you that this was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I came in expecting to be given work from day one. But for the majority of the three months, we really had constant learning. It was 85% learning and 15% work and i couldn't have asked for a better start to my career. Every single person we met was so inspiring and incredibly kind. They made me feel completely at home and like I was part of the Sourcebooks family too!

I will be leaving tomorrow much more confident and passionate about literature and publishing than when I walked in three months ago. Equipped now, with a better understanding of the industry and with your powerful wisdom, I am looking forward to getting right into pursuing my career goals. After our conversation, you have become my idol, both professionally and personally. As both the passionate, kind and intelligent woman that you are and as the founder of a super successful publishing house. And so, going on the advice you gave me, I have decided to continue to work and build my knowledge of 137 steps involved in the publishing process. I will begin applying for jobs soon both in India and the US.

I am very grateful to you and the entire team of amazing and supportive intern managers including Heather Hall, Heather Morris, Stefani Sloma and Meg Gibbons for helping me learn and grow in the most encouraging and fun way possible.

Thank you once again and I wish Sourcebooks the very very best and always will. I am excited to see what new heights it will scale and glass-ceilings it will break under your leadership.
