Intern Spotlight - Ashtyn Humphreys
Jul 26, 2023
Meet Ashtyn Humphreys! This summer Ashtyn is the marketing intern located in Dorchester, NE.
Where are you from?
I am from Odell, NE.
Where do you go to school and what are you studying?
I will be a senior at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln majoring in Agricultural Economics with minors in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communications and the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program.
Why did you choose to intern with Farmers Cooperative.
I chose to intern with Farmers Cooperative because I grew up around the area and always saw and heard of Farmers Cooperative. I was interested in learning more about the cooperative and all that they have to offer. As well as to get good hands-on experience that will help set me up for my future.
What are some of you day-to-day activities?
My day-to-day activities vary a lot depending on what we have going on each week, but a lot of it includes helping plan for events and making sure everyone has what they need for the event. Making packets for the events if needed, helping with social media, going to other locations. As well as meeting with other interns to create these blogs and Instagram takeovers.
What is one thing that you've learned so far this summer?
One thing that I have learned so far this summer is how all the departments correlate and go with one another in some way. It's not something that you would think about having agronomy, grain, feed, and energy that they would all go together. But seeing on the back end how it all feeds together is amazing.
What has been your favorite part of your internship thus far?
One of my favorite things about my internship is that no day is the same and that there are so many different pieces that go into the marketing side of things that often get overlooked from the outside.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I like to sew and make t-shirt quilts.
What would be your dream job, or what is a job you plan on pursuing post-graduation?
After graduation, I have not exactly decided the path that I am going to take. As of now I'm looking at going to grad school to get my masters in Leadership-Education to be an extension educator and do something with 4-H.
