We’re so excited to be working with a new group of Mercury Mambo interns for this Summer! We invite you to meet Sandy Nuzum!
Hometown: Flower Mound, Texas
College/University: Texas State University
Major/Minor/any other focus: Advertising/Media Studies
MM: What’s your education focus?
My goal is to be a fabulous Creative Director one day. Ever since I was little I have always loved making things for fun whether it was drawing in my sketchbook or drawing a pretty picture on my dad’s brand new car with a rock when I was young (Oops!). Let’s just say my dad noticed my talent early on in my life.
MM: How did you hear of Mercury Mambo?
I saw Mercury Mambo online while I was looking for summer internships. Whenever I first looked at Mercury Mambo’s website, I thought it was very fun, and eye catching.
MM: As an intern – what is the single most important thing you want to learn at Mercury Mambo?
I really want to learn more about the creative field and what kinds of things that Creative Directors do on a daily basis. I want to learn as much as I can and soak up as much knowledge about the creative life in an advertising agency.
MM: Where would you like to take the lead in the Advertising Industry and why?
I would like to take the lead in the creative field because I love making something that nobody has seen before or catches their eye. Thinking outside of the box and brainstorming ideas for projects sounds exciting to me and I am so eager to start!
MM: What is most challenging about juggling school and work?
The most challenging about juggling school and work is time management. It is tough to figure out how much time to spend on a school assignment and on a work assignment at the same time. You definitely have to learn how to use your time wisely and to meet the deadlines for everything.
MM: Single activity that has most prepared you for this internship?
I took a graphic design class in high school for two years and I learned a lot about Adobe Photoshop. I have also taken a few advertising classes that have taught me the different jobs that people have in agencies. I have also learned that for my personality I would rather work in a small agency and be close with everyone like a family rather than a large agency.
