Who I am:
Howdy! I’m Colleen, a 23 year old psychology student residing in Atlanta, GA but trying to plan a quick escape around the country. I’m a ball of energy and spend way too much time watching Big Bang Theory, having conversations with my dog, screaming my lungs out at shows, having random dance parties, and working on photos.
My position at Feed Our Children NOW!:
I’m the social media “intern” for Feed Our Children NOW! and the newest kid to the team.
What that means is:
It means that I get to hang out on twitter! My main job is to come up with ways to get all of you, our awesome supporters, more involved in with Feed Our Children NOW through social media. I help out with posting on facebook, tumblr, twitter, and (once Warped Tour kicks off) our flickr page!
How I got here:
I had seen Feed Our Children NOW a bunch of times on Warped Tour, but a friend sent me an email about them earlier this year. After a few phone calls they liked my ideas and gave me the opportunity to work closer with them. I’m so glad they did!
What do you do when you’re not doing Feed Our Children work?:
If anyone takes a look at my planner they’ll likely see chaos. But, on the off chance there aren’t 15 different colours of ink strewn across the pages you’re likely to find me at a concert, behind my camera, sleeping, watching Big Bang Theory, playing with my dog, or trying to learn how to play guitar. I love to finish each day reading and I’m currently reading Looking for Alaska by John Green.
Bands I can’t wait to see on Warped Tour:
Warped Tour is my favourite part of the year - it’s better than Christmas! I’m most excited to see my favourite bands from Michigan; We Came as Romans and I See Stars. I’m also excited for Hands Like Houses, Go Radio, Hawthorne Heights, Sleeping with Sirens, Memphis May Fire, Bring Me the Horizon, and Relient K…just to name a few.
If you look at my iPod you’ll currently find the new Bring Me the Horizon album “Sempiternal” as well as Twenty | One | Pilots new album “Vessel” playing almost all the time.
I’ll be out on a few days of Warped Tour this summer so if you see me make sure to say hi!
If you have any questions for Colleen, please put them in the Feed Our Children ask box or send them to twitter (@FeedOurChildren)!
