Backstage at the Egyptian: Meet our Spring Marketing Intern, Pam Tinajero

Hi, my name is Pamela Tinajero and I am a senior at Northern Illinois University. I will graduate
this May with a bachelor’s degree in Accountancy and a minor in Nonprofit and NGO Studies.

My parents raised my sisters and I to be giving people and so that’s where my passion for
nonprofit work comes from. I am also passionate about the arts. I love watching movies,
listening to live music, watching performances, going to museums, and much more. I am very
excited to intern at the Egyptian Theatre because it’s a historical landmark that has a lot of
amazing history. My favorite event from the Egyptian Theatre is their horror film series every
fall. I enjoyed watching The Shining on the big screen.

I have always enjoyed being in the background helping with performances. I have a little history
with projection and sound production. I was also the light coordinator for a couple of shadow
performances my parent’s church put together. I have a small background in photography, which
is my favorite medium. I am eager to learn all about the Egyptian Theatre and I look forward to
becoming a part of the community in this process.
