Working and organizing support groups at Amanda the Panda. Being helpful behind a computer and communicating with clients. HCI care services offered opportunity to lead your own events committee and help plan many events they were going to have. Making raffle packages and calling businesses for donation and/or discounts on products.


Working from start to finish on the Knoxville Bucket Bash. I got to create all the raffle packages, figure out who was going to cater the meal, where the location was going to be at in Knoxville and see it through to the end.

What advice would you give?

When you are looking for an internship really ask question about what they are willing to offer you. Make sure it is something you want to do, and be specific with how many hours you need.
