We are thrilled to welcome new interns to our team this summer! We can’t wait to see the amazing things they will accomplish. Get to know our 2020 summer interns:

 

Annabelle Wang

My name is Annabelle Wang, and I’m currently a rising sophomore at Stanford University from Houston, TX! I’m thinking about majoring in either Symbolic Systems (a combination of CS, Psych, Linguistics, Philosophy) or Product Design with a definite minor in education. A fun fact about me is that I am a 2020-2021 Stanford Dollie! We’re a group of five girls you see who dance at football, basketball, and volleyball games throughout the year. I’ve also been dancing for 15 years now, and I’ve always been very passionate about teaching and arts education.

My AiA internship is focused on digital social media marketing so I’m been mostly working on the blog and our numerous social media accounts. I’m super excited to keep interning with Art in Action this summer because I used to be involved with another arts non-profit while I was in high school so I’m happy to continue that journey into college. The entire AiA staff is so fun to work with and made me feel right at home straight away. Working with a group of such passionate individuals has inspired me to feel even more strongly about arts education and its necessity in schools and life.

 

Ally Marecek

Hi, I’m Ally!  I’m from Santa Clara and I am currently an incoming senior at Santa Clara University, where I am double majoring in environmental studies and communication.  Fun fact: my dream vacation is exploring New Zealand, where I want to do the Lord of the Rings tour and go zip-lining.

My internship this summer is focused on social media marketing, something I have become very interested in lately, so I’m looking forward to creating some cool content.  I’m excited to join the AiA team because art has been one of my passions throughout my life, and while I have been fortunate enough to have options to create art in school, I know that generally art is not a priority in education.  I think art is important to learn regardless of your path in life, as it teaches you creativity and gives you an opportunity to express your feelings, and it’s especially great early on in childhood.  AiA has a very important mission that resonates with me so I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
