In a truly innovative bit of electronic maneuvering, an Emerson student applying for summer internships has changed her last name on Facebook to her middle name.
If you’re looking for junior screenwriting major Helen Voinarovski on Facebook now, you won’t find her. Assuming you’re already virtual friends with her online, you will find the fresh new alias, “Helen Marie.”
However, if you’re a Los Angeles film company vetting applicants for summer internships, your searches for this brilliant student will come up empty.
Lion’s Tooth reporters were able to reach Voinarovski, and asked her how she was able to come up with such an impeccable plan to hide her devious, often reckless, and thoroughly unprofessional personal life from potential employers.
“Well, it really didn’t take much thinking,” said the forward-thinking woman. “I just knew I had some pics holding red cups at parties in really short dresses and some ones blowing out smoke too– which were actually kind of artsy and potentially even positive for my field but you can never be too careful.”
Voinarovski said the name change also has had some side benefits she didn’t even anticipate at the time when making the big change.
“I’m not gonna say I don’t like my real surname, because I totally do, but Helen Marie just sounds so pretty. I feel like I may even adopt it as my pen name!”
At press time, Dreamworks was throwing out Voinarovski’s resume after finding a picture from her public Instagram account captioned, “Popped a molly I’m sweatin #wooooo.”
