Intern Blog: Week 1 - Meet Amanda Whittemore

Nov 22, 2019 - 10:58 am

Week 1:

Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Whittemore and I am the new intern with the City of Austin’s Music & Entertainment Division. Now a little bit about me, I am a senior studio art major at the University of Texas at Austin, mainly focusing on photography. I live in South Austin and have two dogs and a rabbit who light up my day every time I come home. Kodi is a three-and-a-half-year-old Pitbull, Riley is a six-month-old Catahoula mix, and Gunner is my pride and joy, a seven-and-a-half-year-old Mini-Rex rabbit. I am a part of Austin’s LGBTQ community and proud of it! I am super excited to be working in Austin’s Music and Entertainment division. I have been learning the ins and outs of scheduling social media, writing copy, and finding my way around the office. I am currently working on meeting everyone in the office (and remembering their names) and trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can.  I know there is a steep learning curve here at the beginning of an internship, but I am ready for it! Ta ta for now! <3 Amanda

P.S. here are Kodi, Riley, and Gunner for your daily dose of cuteness
