By Amanda King, Red Cross Internal Communications Intern
As the new internal communications intern at the Red Cross, I’m excited to be a part of the Communications and Marketing team. During my internship, I hope to learn more about each department and help get the amazing stories about the Red Cross out there.
Learning about the Red Cross and what it offers Ohio communities has opened my eyes to the realization that the Red Cross does so much more than I ever knew. Aside from the Blood Services that everyone knows about, the Red Cross offers so much more, such as a community transportation program for seniors, a First Aid Service Team that saves lives at local events, and disaster presentations to educate children and adults.
Hailing from the small town of Coshocton, I now reside in Columbus where I attend Ohio State University as a double major in English and Psychology. After graduation this August, I hope to work in the publishing industry and move to London or New York. I enjoy kickboxing classses and find writing and reading to be the greatest joys in my life. If you ever see a random girl wandering Columbus in search of chocolate or caffeine, it’s probably me. I look forward to meeting all of the staff and volunteers and hearing their stories!
