My name is Jillian Brannock, and I am this year’s AoIT Intern! I’m a senior at Apex High and plan to go to college to major in Communications in Journalism. Throughout my high school career I have been involved in various activities such as managing the volleyball team my freshman year and being apart of the Student Council for the past 3 years. As well as my internship, I work as a crew member at Chipotle in Apex. I’ve been working there for a year and a half.
I could best describe myself as being very outgoing and sociable. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places. I think my ability to work well with others is going to get me far in my career, whether it is journalism or not.
During my internship at the school I will not only be helping the AoIT teachers clerically but also teaching myself a new form of code called WordPress. This will be so that I can update the website and alter it so that it is easier to navigate. It will have information that all students in the academy will need, and information that individual classes will need. There will be many videos and PowerPoints attached to the site that students who missed any meetings should refer to for the information they missed. Not only that, but parents of current and possible future academy members will be able to find information that they need too. I will also be running the various AoIT social media that students can follow to stay updated on any last minute changes with in the AoIT cohort.
I can’t wait to see what else this internship has in store for me!
