Amanda: Experience Design & Management

Amanda Kilgore interned with Provo City Events as a Special Events Recreation Leader during Spring 2021. Here is what she has to say about the experience:

What did you learn? 

I learned that I have talents in graphic design And really that there is just a lot more that goes on behind the scenes of an event than you think. I was able to get hands on experience in the event world in lots of different ways: food trucks, entertainment, decorations, activities, volunteers, etc. 

How have your future plans changed? 

I realized how fulfilling and enjoyable events can be and I’m not sure I’m ready to give that up. 

Would you recommend this internship? 

Definitely! The internship provides a lot of hands on experience with events, and the team is awesome to work with.  I had a blast! The only thing that would make it better would be getting paid.
