Meet Evelyn: I Made It! Market Intern

Pin It

My name is Evelyn Negri-Albert.  I am working with I Made It! Market and The Neighborhood Flea as an event planning intern. I am in my senior year at Duquesne University, majoring in psychology with a minor in communication studies, and will be graduating in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.  Currently, I am looking into local graduate schools to obtain a Masters of Business Administration degree with a focus in Marketing.  In the foreseeable future, I plan to tack on a Masters of Fine Arts in Media Design degree in the direction of accomplishing my longterm goal of becoming a creative director for an advertising company.

As for my creative background, I have nurtured my enthusiasm for the arts for as long as I can remember.  With a passion for writing, painting, drawing, and calligraphy, I am constantly creating.  In addition to my artistic pursuits, I have developed a strong admiration for both travel and intercultural experiences.  My desire to travel began when I studied abroad at Duquesne University’s Rome Campus in the fall semester of 2014, and my interest in embracing other cultures has only continued to grow.  Through living abroad, I have gained strong interpersonal and intercultural skills, awareness, and a deep appreciation for multicultural diversity.  I thrive on exploring new environments and interacting with new people.

While interning with I Made It! Market, I will be responsible for tasks such as assisting with the assembly of local events, maintaining professional relationships with vendors, and working with superiors to compose blog posts for multiple social media platforms in order to preserve a concise theme for their organization. Not only is interning with I Made It! Market one of my first steps in establishing myself in the world of communication, but in the short time I have worked with them, I have already been acquainted with many incredible individuals.  Dedicated, open-minded, and enthusiastic about what lies ahead for my future, I am in it for the long haul!
