    So Many Sports – Only ONE Photographer! 

    So the Bluegrass State Games finally arrived. And only two weekends in, I’m exhausted! It has been hot temperatures here in Kentucky (hello 90s!) so that makes the running around town a little harder to handle. But the amount of people (athletes, parents and siblings alike) that have turned out to participate has been incredible! I talked to some families that drive to and from home each day – some of those being hours away – just so their child can participate. They don’t seem to mind sitting out in the blazing sun for hours on end just to cheer on everyone, even during games from other counties they never have even met!

    Take Me Out to the Ball Game… 

    As I asked in the title of this post, for someone to please “take me out to the ball game”. Well I went to the ball game. I went to eleven ball games in 5 days as the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) hosted the 2010 State Baseball Tournament at Applebee’s Park in downtown Lexington, June 14th – 19th. As one of the tournament sponsors, iHigh was one of the official photographers of the games. So I got to spend almost 30 hours watching high school baseball…

    Greetings from the Bluegrass State! 

    Hello there! I’m new to the blogging sphere for AU Interns so let me take this opportunity to introduce myself.

    My name is Amanda Zimmer and I am an upcoming junior at American University majoring in Broadcast Journalism with minors in Marketing and Studio Art Multimedia. In my two years at American, I’ve really immersed myself in all the opportunities that the university and city of Washington, D.C. offers. I am extremely active within the School of Communication, serving my second term as president of the Undergraduate Council as well as an ambassador to perspective and first-year students. I am also involved with the Kogod School of Business as the vice president of communication for the Kogod Marketing Association and a new brother of the business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi. As you can see, I keep pretty busy! But I love it and wouldn’t want it any other way.

    Living in the DC area, I have had some amazing opportunities and internships thus far that have really allowed me to get out into the city and meet a variety of people. Check out more below the cut on my internship experience both in Washington and my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky.
