The Egyptian Theatre is excited to welcome our marketing intern Jessica Hicks from Northern Illinois University for the fall semester.
My name is Jessica Hicks and I am a junior at Northern Illinois University. I am the marketing intern for the Egyptian Theatre this fall. I am pursuing a psychology major as well as a double minor in deafness rehabilitation and sociology, in addition to these I am working towards getting my certificate in both criminology and adolescents.
I plan to use these in my
future to become a juvenile delinquent counselor to help the troubled youth. In my free time I am an active member in two different organizations: Deaf Pride and the Student Psychological Association (SPA).
When I am not busy with these groups I enjoy going to events here on campus, anything from sporting events to craft nights. I love being involved and trying new things.
I am very excited to start this internship because it will be a new experience for me that I am eager to explore. I look forward to seeing the different aspects behind making an event happen, like the preparation, staging, and everything else that when you come to the show you do not realize.
I am excited to work with the cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show to promote upcoming shows, I feel that we can come up with fresh and new ideas on how to effectively promote the shows especially to NIU students. I also look forward to sitting in on board meetings and seeing the other side of how nonprofits work and what it takes to keep one up and running.
I have never worked with a nonprofit before so I am interested in how it is different from other organizations. However, what I am the most excited about for this semester is going to be helping lead the marketing and promotional efforts for the Todd Oliver show in November, I think it will be a great way to really show what I have been learning all semester up until that point and marketing is something I have always wanted to try and this is a great opportunity.
