by Lizzie Wirgau A new year... new interns! We currently have three interns that work with us in the office. They are each so talented and bring great things to the table. We are confident Market Colors will grow over these next 4 months because of these ladies. You already know one of them, Robyn. Now, meet Beverly and Grace.
Beverly is a junior at UCF, majoring in Communications and minoring in Nonprofit Management. In her free time, she loves volunteering, finding new music, catching up on old films, thrift shopping, and being surrounded by family and friends. Beverly says that after she found out about Market Colors, she was “completely hooked” and is so passionate about our mission and vision. She loves feeling connected to the craftsmen and knowing that what she does is making an impact. Beverly’s role includes event planning, development, and day-to-day office tasks such as shipping. She is also a vegetarian. While the Market Colors internship is not solely for those with dietary restrictions, we do seem to attract vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free, and lactose intolerant girls. We love them all!
Grace moved from Bradenton to Orlando in 2009 to attend UCF, where she is studying Communications and Nonprofit Management. After completing her degree this past December, she began looking for opportunities to work with nonprofits that serve in Africa and found Market Colors to be a great fit! Grace loves good books, coffee, antiquing, any opportunity to travel or explore new places, and all kinds of food (but especially Thai!) While working with Market Colors, she will be handling some of the social media including Pinterest, curating the blog, and helping keep up the Twitter account. And, keeping true to Market Colors intern form, Grace is gluten-free as well!
