Hello! My name is Alyssa Zucker and I am thrilled to join the HMG Creative team as the new Social Media and Marketing Intern! I am currently a Sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin, studying Public Relations with a minor in English. I am loving every aspect of being a Longhorn. Coming to Texas from my small town of Manhattan Beach, California, I am fully embracing all the amazing culture Austin has to offer. From learning what it means to “Keep Austin Weird,” to eating my way through the city, I am constantly entertained here. While I will miss being walking distance from the beach, I am excited to immerse myself in the Austin lifestyle, even the excruciating summer heat.
Living the life of a student, I spend the majority of time studying. On the days when my schedule is clear, I love finding exciting ways to explore my new city. I enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, sunset viewing, and discovering all of Austin’s great coffee shops. I am confident my mom and I can rival the “Gilmore Girls,” infamous caffeine addicts, when it comes to coffee intake. At UT, I am a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Through this organization, I was introduced to this incredible internship opportunity (Thanks Kate!). My other passions include Torchy’s queso and finding new people to show pictures of my dogs.
I spent this last summer interning for Claire & Company, a local advertising company in Southern California. It was here that I learned the ins and outs of the advertising world, and realized that I needed to be a part of it. For all the times I have spent too much of my day on social media, I finally found a way to get paid for it. I am so excited to learn from all the innovative minds behind HMG Creative and experience the industry through a digital lens.
