Media Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 Fort Wayne, IN
“I enjoyed the amount of creative freedom in this internship. The supervisors really let you make the internship how you want it. There's no strict deadlines or quotas you need to meet every week. You get to create what you want! I produced mostly event videos for social media and educational videos with the education team. Additionally, I loved being outside everyday and seeing animals. ”
