Meet Kylie Howe! She's one of our Summer Event Planning Interns at HQ. Kylie graduated from NC State University in May with a Degree in Parks, Recreation, and Program Management. Read Kylie's interview to find out what she's doing this summer, why she loves HQ, and what she plans to do next!

How did you hear about HQ?

My roommate was an intern last year, and talked about it nonstop. She was always going on about how cool it was, so I decided to check it out.

What's your favorite thing about working here?

The community, definitely. The people are just so nice, they love to talk and get to know everyone.

What do you think makes working here different from other internship experiences?

This is definitely a more relaxed space. It's not like people are in their own little cubicles, it's more open and free. It's also more active. I don't like being stuck in a cubicle, I like getting to walk around and see other people.

What are some other things you're doing this summer?

I have plans to go to the nation's capital for the Fourth of July, and I'm heading to Nashville in July, and plan to move there in September. I'm also taking a group of high school girls to a summer camp and working as their leader.

Why Nashville?

I'm really curious about the music industry. I've had a passion for music, even though I can't sing, but there's just something about the way that music can bring people together and inspire people. I've always been really drawn to it. I'd love to work as maybe a recruiter, finding musicians. Or I'd love to work for a music venue and learn about the marketing side of it. Therefore, moving to Nashville, or Music City, is a great next step.

So if you're not a singer, what are some other things you like to do?

Oh gosh. I love working out, doing yoga, cycling, just being active. I'm also a huge health freak. I'll find the latest health crazes and become obsessed with them. I love finding out what's good for you. I also love reading, and I'll read all day if I can.

What's the most recent health craze you've tried?

Something called the Whole 30. It's not necessarily a diet, it's more like a cleanse. You pretty much can't eat anything but meat, vegetables, and fruit. It's very whole foods, all-natural, and getting back to basics.
