During my time at the University of Memphis, I have participated in several fundraising events for St. Jude and through those events I learned a lot about the hospital. However, now that I have been given the opportunity to work closely with the hospital I have found such a deeper passion for the hospital’s mission and I am so proud to be a part of the team that helps raise the money that finds the cures.
During my internship I hope to learn exactly what it is like to work on an events team. Throughout my semester at ALSAC, I have meetings set up with different members of the team to see how each part differs. I am always encouraged to attend meetings with both the Event Marketing team as well as ALSAC-wide meetings with the CEO, Rick Shadyac. I am so thankful to be apart of a group that encourages intern involvement and ideas because it encourages me to work to my full potential. So far, this internship has been a great confirmation that I am getting a degree in the right field and proactively working toward my goal to have a career in nonprofit organizations.
