Mackenzie Murray- Intern at Straight Up Films

Mackenzie Murray spent the summer interning at Straight Up Films, a film and television production company based in Los Angeles, California.
"I interned at Straight up Films from the beginning of June until the end of July, and I absolutely loved it! I was responsible for doing script coverage and creating writers' lists for their projects that are in development, as well as assisting the producers with whatever they need. It was cool to see everything that goes in to the development of a film and since it was a small company, I was able to offer my opinion and play a role in the process. It has been such a great opportunity to really learn the business and make life long connections.
"I also had the opportunity to assist a producer for the Lionsgate film 'Public Disturbance' that was in production. It was awesome getting to help out on a real set and watch the movie being filmed. When I wasn't working, I had plenty of time to travel around and see different cities in California, including San Diego, Laguna Beach, and Yosemite National Park. It was a great summer, and I look forward to moving back to California when I graduate!"

Caroline Imiolek- Camp Counselor at Dream Oaks Camp

Caroline Imiolek worked as a camp counselor at Dream Oaks Camp, a residential summer camp for children with special needs. It also offers weekend camps throughout the year!
"People who say that Disney World is the happiest place on earth, haven’t been to Dream Oaks Camp. At camp we praise, encourage, compliment, commend the camper’s ABILITIES, without condemning their “disabilities”. Camp runs for 6 weeks, with a different set of campers every week. Campers participate in activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, swimming, arts and crafts, sports and games, and we even have an extravagant dance every Thursday. 
"I’m one of the older returning counselors at Dream Oaks, so each week I get one of the most challenging campers at camp - but I love it! The abilities range from severe autism, to ADHD, to OCD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and so much more - no camper ever gets turned down. Our goal is to make the camper’s week at Dream Oaks, their favorite week of the summer."
