Living Interns in Akron: A Nine-Part Mini-Story
And then there’s Alexandra Livadas, who goes by Alexa. Her mom calls her Fred and she has no idea why. Alexa attends Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and studies finance. Next year, she will be a junior. Like Joanna, this is Alexa’s first “real” job. She has nannied in the past, and would always take the kids to the pool and the zoo, or for rides on bikes or ice cream. Alexa plays the piano and likes working at State and Federal Communications, Inc.
“Everyone here is really helpful and nice,” she said. Alexa handles our finances. “Elizabeth has taught me the importance of getting involved in the community and being a good corporate citizen through her own efforts, making sure that her interns go to community luncheons and chamber meetings and volunteering with the Annunciation Akron and United Way.”
It’s true: the interns have been attending one to several events every week. Alexa added: “It really helps us grow as young adults and will become a valuable experience for the future.”
Like Joanna, Alexa enjoys peanut butter and jelly for lunch. Old habits die hard.
