Alight Analytics is lucky to have extra help this summer from our new marketing intern, Anna Hansen! This is one of our busiest times of year, and Anna has tackled several mission-critical projects, including preparing for conferences, masterminding email campaigns and much more. Learn more about Anna in her Q&A!
But what do you actually do at Alight?
I’m constantly learning! This is a great environment with a variety of people who are happy to answer any questions I have. I enjoy helping the marketing team with any tasks that need to be done.
Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from? What are you studying?
I was born and raised in Lawrence, Kansas. As soon as I graduated from Lawrence Free State High, I hightailed it out of my parents’ house to begin school at a university in Idaho. I quickly realized that the long, cold, dark winters were not for me and decided to transfer to a school slightly further south, in Salt Lake City, where I continued to study digital marketing. I missed the Midwest and am happy to finally be back home, where I can continue to gain experience in the field of marketing.
What do you do when you aren’t at work?
When I’m not at work, you can find me creating playlists on Spotify, supporting my friends in their various hobbies, volunteering at church and hanging out with family — just generic wholesome things. I enjoy trying new food in the area, and if there’s queso or guacamole on the menu, I’m a happy girl. When I was living in the West, I was an avid hiker and rock climber, and continue to find contentment exercising in other capacities here, despite the lack of mountains.
What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I’m definitely not the next Celine Dion, so when I choose to participate in some karaoke, I sing something that everyone likes. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” by Shania Twain is a real crowd-pleaser. How can you not sing along and do a little line dancing when that starts playing?
What was the best compliment you’ve ever received?
The notoriously hottest boy in my graduating class told me that I have a “keen sense of choosing good neckties” when I somehow ended up Black Friday shopping with him and some friends after a Thanksgiving concert. I’m years out of school, and I still think about that whenever I’m doubting myself.
