Greetings! My name is Carolyn Garavente, and I’m excited to be the new Social Media Intern for Kirschenbaum Productions for the next 4 months. I’m about to be a senior at High Point University in High Point, North Carolina and am majoring in Communications with a focus in Media and Pop Culture Studies. This is pretty much scratching the surface about me.
A lot of people have asked me why I took on an internship at Kirschenbaum Productions. I took on this position for a couple reasons, among many. To start, I really like how Gayle is sharing her story about her and her mother in her upcoming documentary “Look At Us Now, Mother!” and really emphasizing how important her relationship with her mother is. I have a close, tight knit relationship with my mom (I put a picture of her and I below), so it hits home with me. Who are we without our mothers, anyway? Another reason I chose to work here is because I LOVE movies, and I mean it. If movies were still less than 10 bucks, you’d most likely find me there every weekend watching the new releases. Every story is fascinating and told in different ways. My third reason that I will share is because growing social media has always fascinated me since I entered college, and this internship will help me experience it first hand, instead of just studying it.

My first day on the job was a whirlwind, but a blast. I not only got to meet a couple of the people working for Gayle, I got to meet Gayle herself. Her passion for her upcoming documentary to be the best it can be is inspiring, and I hope that I one day get to find out what I’m going to be just as passionate about. For now, you’ll see me using creativity and passion through creating posts on Twitter and Facebook, along with finding some stuff to pin on Pinterest for the company. I’m really excited to see where this internship takes me!
So, go follow and “like” us. Goodbye, for now!
