Things are rolling along here at Market Colors this week as we prepare for our benefit show this Friday night. With so much to do it continues to be a blessing to have this team of hardworking women interning with us this summer. Last week we got to introduce you to two of our new team members, Aubrey and Kaylee, and today you get to meet Jessica and Allee.
Jessica graduated in May from the University of South Florida where she studied Relational and Mass Communication. While looking for career opportunities, she stumbled upon Market Colors through a friend's Facebook page. Immediately, she fell in love with the purpose and aim of Market Colors. Although she has never traveled to Africa, she has a heart for the nations and was extremely excited to work with an organization that invests so well in African countries. Jessica is interested in how social media can be a tool that helps equip African craftsmen. As a social media intern, Jessica will help communicate and promote the ideas of Market Colors by means of social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In her free time, Jessica enjoys finding new places to eat, spending time with friends and using her Eno (awesome hammock) to relax outside in the trees.
Allee is from Woodstock, Georgia and just graduated from Florida Southern College. She received her bachelors degree in Advertising and Public Relations with a concentration in Graphic Design. She loves the Lord and desires to do everything for the sake of the gospel and His kingdom. Allee has spent two summers serving on mission teams in Africa and has a heart for the unreached people of the world. Her desire is to allow the Lord to use her to lead these people to Him. Allee first heard about Market Colors while interning at Children of the Nations, where she is the Event Planning Intern. She has a passion to create things that are visually intriguing and appealing to help raise awareness and funds for the organizations that she works with. Allee is honored to be able to use this passion to serve at Market Colors as the Graphic Design Intern.
