To kick off our Meet the Interns series we are featuring Abby Allen this week. Abby is a 22 year-old Senior at Whitworth University from Kent, Washington. She is currently majoring in Business Management and interning at Hoopfest during her free time! Hear more about Abby’s story below:
What are your future career plans? To be determined, but hopefully somewhere in Seattle/Portland working in some kind of sports avenue.
Outside of school, what do you enjoy doing? I enjoy spending time with friends and working out/running.
Unusual skills or talents? I play guitar, run long distances (2 half marathons), and can watch Netflix for hours.
How did you first hear about Hoopfest? Probably from friends at school who had played in it before.
Have you ever been to Hoopfest before? Played? Volunteered? No! I always go home for the summer, but hopefully I will be able to this year!
Why did you choose to intern with Hoopfest? Bailee really sold me on everything Hoopfest was about and their extensive involvement in the community, beyond just the tournament. I was excited to have a chance to work in a place where I could gain experience and share my love for sports as well.
What has been your favorite part since starting your internship with Hoopfest? I really love the atmosphere in the office and how everyone is one big team working towards a huge end goal. It’s an awesome place to work!
