Moving into the Egloff House
Our first week our internship began, we were working remotely from Ames and are so excited to be here in Mason City now to start off our second week! Our regional director Donovan Olson got us the Egloff house to stay in this summer and we like to think that out of all the rising stars, we got the coolest housing. It is a historical house up here named the Egloff house and the other interns and I love it. It has everything color coded for nice and easy organization, cool interior and nice big beds and rooms. We have nicknamed it “the boat” because of the nautical feel the home has, from the circular windows on the outside to some nautical decorations within the rec room. We love the boat!
We have been quite busy this week meeting everyone in our region. We have met almost everyone that we will be working with this summer and are so delighted to be working with all of them! Everyone we have met with has great ideas on what they want done for each project and we are thrilled to help them bring their visions to life as best as we can. Although we have many projects and many people to meet we are equally excited to work on all of them! We have been making good progress on our projects and are looking forward to sharing more about it with you all!
The fellow Rising Stars and I hope to share more next week!
