It's officially summer here at Market Colors and with that comes the blessing of four new interns, bringing our total to six! With our team having doubled in just a week it's amazing to see how much we are able to accomplish. Each of them is so talented and bring unique skills to the table which we are so thankful for. You've already met Beverly and Grace, who started in January, and today we'd like to introduce Aubrey and Kaylee.
Aubrey is from Orlando and is pursuing her Bachelors degree at the University of Central Florida. She is studying Interpersonal and Organizational Communication, the study of relationships, and minoring in Leadership Studies. She is passionate about the Lord and the people He has given her to love and serve. Her desire is to spend her professional career in community outreach and build relationships with all she meets. More specifically, the Lord has put a call on her heart to work with the underprivileged, homeless, and disabled. Aubrey has traveled to India to evangelize and work with the homeless, individuals with special needs, and those with leprosy. She carries the same passion and vision as Market Colors, to reach out and reveal the love of Christ.
Aubrey heard about Market Colors through her close friend, Lizzie Wirgau, (our CEO) and now holds the position of Event Planning Intern. In her spare time, she loves to create and enjoy music, spend intentional time with friends, and eat good food. She is very involved in her church's worship program and volunteers with Younglife ministry.
Kaylee is an Orlando native and currently in her final year at UCF, studying Nonprofit Management and African Studies. She immediately connected with the mission of Market Colors because of "the amazing things we're doing in Africa". Kaylee has served in Kenya for the past three summers and has fallen in love with all of its beauty. She will be getting married later this year and is excited to be moving to Kenya with her sweetheart next year. She'll continue working to promote more opportunities for young people.
Kaylee loves photography, interesting patterns and bright colors, reading about social justice and international development, the outdoors, and traveling. She is obsessed with avocados. Besides interning with Market Colors as the Marketing and Outreach Intern, Kaylee also works at Starbucks and loves all things coffee and tea. This summer, Kaylee will be managing our Home Parties, working with the Street Team, and connecting with churches and other organizations.
Check back with us next week to read more about Kaylee's experience in Kenya and to meet our other two new interns, Jessica and Allee!
