Meet Our New Intern: Sydney Sparks

Hi there! I’m Sydney, the new Hitch intern!

I am a junior at South Dakota State University majoring in journalism and advertising. This major interests me because I have a passion for writing and creating things, so interning at Hitch was a good fit because I am able to execute both of those things and improve upon them.

I wanted to intern at Hitch not only because I love the work that Carrie and Renee do, but also because right from the first interview I knew that they were people I could be totally myself with. These ladies have a way of making you feel completely at ease and when you’re a student just learning your trade, that’s such a comforting quality.

I’ve just started my fourth month here at Hitch and have had the opportunity to work on some great events and projects like designing shirts for the Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity and working at the Sioux Empire Wedding Network Bridal Show (If you want to see Hitch at the Jan. 31 SEWN Show, they will  have a booth from 12-3 at the Sioux  Falls Convention Center. Register here!)   There is no better feeling than seeing things you’ve created out in the world. I’m also in charge of our Instagram, so give us a follow to see more from us!

My dream is to work for a magazine and Hitch will contribute to that by strengthening my writing and design skills. I’m so grateful for the relationships I’ve made because of Hitch and am incredibly eager to see where my internship continues to take me.

Some of my initial work is shown below, and click here to see my entire online portfolio.

Interested in being Hitch’s next summer intern? Contact them anytime! I highly recommend it.
