Get to Know the Newbie: Amelia

By: > June 16th, 2014

Right after my first step in the door, I was greeted by Rosie’s sweet curly-haired face, followed by friendly smiles from Jackie and Bill Powell. Jackie and Bill have graciously given me some summer hours as an intern to learn the ropes of their creative marketing agency and add some college perspective creativity to their brand. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow in my skills and understanding of the marketing world. Since I am going to be around for a couple months, I figure you may as well get to know me!

My name is Amelia Hegle (pronounced “Heg-lee”) and I am a 19-year-old college Junior. I am the youngest of 3 kids and lover of all things fluffy and cuddly. I love to laugh, find the beautiful things in life, and write about the moments and people that inspire me. If you want to you can check out my  personal blog! Born in Janesville, WI in 1994, I am a native Wisconsinite. But, don’t ask me anything about Wisconsin because I barely know my way around my own city. When I was 8 years old, my family packed up and moved across the ocean to Bandung, Indonesia where I made friends, went to an international school, and learned the ropes of traveling from country-to-country while attempting to avoid worst-case scenario jet lag.

I found my niche in high school working on the yearbook in every aspect of design, writing, and photography. After I graduated from high school in 2012, I made the move to Wilmore, KY where I began studying Communications and Public Relations at Asbury University. Despite all my jokes about it years prior to moving here, Kentucky quickly stole my heart and became my second home.

So here I am, embarking on the next step in my life as their summer intern and excited to see how I grow at Serif Group. Here’s to a new adventure!
