Meet the Intern: Morgan
My name is Morgan McKenna and I am a new graphic design intern here at Aigner/Prensky Marketing Group. I am a rising junior at the University of Connecticut as a Digital Media and Design major with a focus in Business and Social Media Strategies. Last semester, I really found a passion for social media marketing in design and social media classes. I was even selected for an internal marketing team, Agency X, for the coming fall semester. I am interested in combining graphic design with social media marketing and I know this internship is the perfect opportunity to learn more. I am learning so much from everyone already and am eager to learn more skills from hands-on work.
During the school year, you will find me cheering on my UConn Huskies basketball and hockey teams, helping prospective students as a Husky Ambassador or volunteering at philanthropy events with my sorority sisters. Being on such a big campus has allowed me to get involved in so many opportunities and events, my favorite being HuskyTHON, an 18 hour dance marathon that raises money to benefit the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Raising money and dancing all night was one of the best and more rewarding experiences of my life and I can't wait to do it all over again in just a few months. I plan to travel the world and am hoping to start my journey by studying abroad next spring. I am looking forward to the next two years of my college experience with all my friends in Connecticut.
When I'm not at school, or interning at A/P, you will find me on Cape Cod, waitressing at my favorite seafood restaurant. Waitressing has given me the unique opportunity to work with all types of people and I enjoy the fast paced environment, not to mention the food. When I find free time, I am usually hanging out with my friends, re-watching The Office for the hundredth time, or relaxing on Cape Cod with my entire family. If I could spend 365 days of the year on a beach in Cape Cod, I would.
Overall, I am very excited to see what Aigner/Prensky has in store for me this summer. I love being challenged and learning new skills while working under pressure. I know that this internship will be a great opportunity for me to develop both creatively and professionally. I am ready to work hard every day and look forward to learning as much as possible from the fabulous A/P team.
