I am a recent graduate from Linfield College who is living in Portland for the summer. I majored in Mass Communication with a minor in Creative Writing. I have lived in Seattle all my life and love the Pacific Northwest. I am excited to explore the abundance of food trucks and hikes in Portland!
Now more than ever, it is important to support the arts, especially non-profit organizations. I am honored to be spending my summer at All Classical Portland and am excited to work with each staff member to gain skills in an array of areas. This internship is a great transition from school to the real world. I have already made great connections and can’t wait to learn and grow at All Classical Portland.
