Thank You Summer Interns!
As our summer 2021 internships come to a close, we want to highlight each of our talented interns that made an impact this summer. These amazing students helped further our mission, support major initiatives, and help set Art in Action up for a successful new school year. We will miss them dearly!
Hello! My name is Emmy Sinconegui and I’m from New York. I am a rising junior at Emory University studying marketing at the Goizueta Business School. A fun fact about me is that I got to see One Direction perform live before they broke up and it is still the highlight of my tween years.
I am a digital marketing intern at Art in Action and I help with development for their website. The importance of arts education is something that is very dear to me as I have seen firsthand how much of an impact arts education can have on children and their communities. Having a father who is an artist born in Cuba, I understand the importance of encouraging creative expression and how lucky we are to be able to do so! My favorite type of art to do myself are oil paintings! And yes, I have a lot of stained clothes to prove it. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with such a supportive and kind community here at Art in Action. I have already learned so much!
Hello! My name is Ethan. I am currently a rising sophomore at Foothill College where I major in business administration. Fun Fact: as a kid in elementary school and middle school I always loved when our class got to do the Art in Action lessons, and now as a college student I am working for AIA! Clearly things have really come full circle for me.
My focus at Art in Action has been our databases. We use platforms such as Salesforce and Greater Giving to manage and keep track of our relationships with donors and contributors of AIA. I work to update this data, clean it up, and use it to pull reports for the Art in Action team so we can make more informed management and marketing decisions. Art has always been a way for me to express myself in a creative and exciting way and I love that I get to contribute to an organization that works to encourage kids in the same way!
Hi I’m Kathryn! I’m from Redwood City, CA and I’m a rising sophomore at Loyola Marymount University in LA. At LMU, I’m studying Marketing and I’m involved in the Marketing Society, an online college women’s magazine called Her Campus LMU, Student Ambassadors, and Alpha Chi Omega. A fun fact about me is that I played competitive softball for 9 years.
My internship this summer focuses on social media marketing. As a social media marketing intern for Art in Action, I create, schedule, and post content on all of their social media platforms, specifically Facebook and Instagram. I think arts education is important because it allows kids to express themselves and their creativity. My favorite types of art are photography, graphic design, and typography. As a former Art in Action student, I’m so excited to be working with the organization!
Hi my name is Jackson Elder and I’m a film student from Austin, Texas currently attending California College of the Arts. At a young age I showed an interest in film. In the future I want to write and direct independently produced movies. I work in the media department at Art in Action where I edit videos. A few months ago I moved from Austin to San Francisco to take a couple of classes and be an intern at Art in Action.
