I had some issues on my return flight to California, so I had to take Monday off to recuperate. Once Tuesday came, it was nonstop catch up. I was having difficulty prioritizing everything that needed to be done, but Nicky and Amber were there to help when needed and that was a huge relief.
I was given the task of writing a press release on the new kids (baby goats) that were born last week and after just one draft, it was approved and ready to be sent out to the media. This was a very fast press release, but it has been one of the most popular thus far. Check the kids out on ZooBorns and Perez Hilton’s website. This has been special to me since I was able to be so involved with the kids from the beginning.
The rest of the week consisted of following up with marketing contracts, creating a plan for updating the Zoo’s online calendar, and assisting one more media outlet onsite for the new goat kids. I can tell it’s the time of year that business starts to pick up and everything is on hyper speed to get done.
With that being said, it was a different level of work this week, but I was able to power through thanks to my supervisors and co-workers. This week also marked two months as an intern at Oakland Zoo. I think I’ve gotten the hang of it, enjoy the people I get to work with, and of course, love the mission I am serving. Thanks for following my journey thus far. Two months down and two to go; let’s see what else is in store.
