My name is Karina Palomo and I am the Egyptian Theatre marketing intern for the fall.I was born and raised in Chicago. I am also a senior at Northern Illinois University, where I am pursuing a degree in Nonprofit and NGO Studies as well as Political Science. After graduation I plan on working for an organization that is focused on fighting for the Food Justice Movement.
I am truly looking forward to my intern experience at the Egyptian Theatre. I am grateful for the opportunity to obtain real life experience in the nonprofit sector. Throughout this internship I will be able to build my marketing, writing and communication skills. During my time at NIU, I have heard fabulous things about the Egyptian Theatre. I am so happy that I am able to contribute to such an amazing organization that is the heart of DeKalb.
I would also like to thank the Center of Nonprofit and NGO Studies as well as the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership for allowing me to be apart of the internship program. I am hoping to apply everything that I have learned in the classroom at the Egyptian Theatre this fall!
