Oh how time flies when you’re having fun! HDDT has been lucky enough to have UCLA student Kristine Ngo join the team as our (paid!) summer Events Intern since June, made possible by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission’s Arts Internship Program. Read on to learn a little bit more about our awesome intern!
College/Major: UCLA, English w/a theatre minor
Hometown: Los Angeles
What are you excited for this summer at HDDT?
I’m excited for all of the events that are happening this summer, to see the performances, and just how much there is to do! From what other people have told me about internships, they’ve had to make work for themselves, but since I got here I had plenty to do and I just hit the ground running. There are also so many things to be excited about that I’m not even aware of yet. It will be a fun journey to discover them!
What are you excited for this summer with the internship program?
I’ve never worked full-time before so the structure of this intern program will be a new experience. I’m also excited to meet the other interns, and people who are trying to do similar things.
What are some of your hobbies?
I like rollerskating with my dad, reading, and watching theatre.
What is the best live performance you’ve ever seen?
There are so many! There’s a play called ‘Friends Like These’ by Gregory Crafts that I saw at Hollywood Fringe Festival when I was in high school that I really enjoyed. It was one of those shows that I tried to get people to come back with me to see it a second time. I also got to go the Summer ’16 tour last year and saw Drake and Future. The lighting was really great and it was the height of my Drake fandom stage.
What are your future goals?
In general, I would like to stay within events in some capacity. It sounds very broad, but I’d like to be involved in live experiences.
Look out for another blog soon from Kristine, and if you see her at our performances make sure to say hello!
