This summer we had two summer interns in our San Leandro office. This year we welcomed Anjelika Pineda and Abraham Lopez from the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce and San Leandro Unified School District Summer Intern Program. Both Anjelika and Abraham were graduating seniors at San Leandro High School, and both are products of the San Leandro Academy of Multimedia and graphic arts classes.
They worked with us on organizing our materials library, learning about environmental graphic design, and being part of a team in a business setting. They sat in on staff meetings, sorted through project documents and precedent photos, ran errands, visited project sites, and learned about vendor presentations. Talk about throwing them into the deep end of the pool!
August 17th was their last day with us and we sent them off with tips on how to navigate their first year at college. Both Anjelika and Abraham will be attending San Francisco State University this fall and we wish them all the success in the world!
