Meet Virginia Ingram


Why are you a RISE intern?

I am interning at RISE because I am interested in making a difference and becoming part of a great community of people. 

What do you do as an intern?

My title is "marketing" and that basically means I am coming up with new ideas to incorporate more media and art into RISE. It's a new position so we will see what comes out of it! 

How do you feel about raisins?

"They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council." -Benny & Joon

In all seriousness though, I really like raisins. 

What's your favorite song to dance to?

My friends and I made up a really goofy dance to go with the song "Human" by The Killers. I am often tempted to do it in public. 

If you could pick three heroes, who would they be and why?

Batman, Iron Man and The Human Torch

Because Batman and Iron Man's technology fails, then I'll still have the Human Torch as backup. 

Do you have any secret talents?

Well they wouldn't be very secret if I posted them online would they? 

What are your hopes and dreams for RISE?

What I love about RISE is its ambition and I hope that RISE continues to chase these ambitions. I am excited to bring more art and vibrance to RISE as it continues to expand its projects and outreach.
