"Your struggle is part of your story."
"We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future."

Who I Am:
Hi. I’m Ryan, a senior marketing major from Jackson, TN. I’m one of the loud interns and extremely outgoing. I try and keep things light in most cases and love to make my friends laugh. If you’re looking for quiet time, you’ll never find it around me.
Stuff I Like:
I love living life to its fullest. I never turn down a good time, and I’m always the first to find a new adventure. I do my best to stay active outside. If times are a little calmer, I love just sitting down and playing one of my guitars.
Why I’m Here:
My career goal is to work in nonprofit marketing. Working with TWLOHA has actually always been my dream, so this internship is surreal. I found out about TWLOHA in 2008, and ever since, I knew it was where I wanted to work. TWLOHA’s vision and mission are both statements that I believe in strongly.
I would most likely bring ______ to the office kitchen:
Hot Pockets, microwavable frozen burritos, sour cream, and an ice-cold pitcher of homemade sweet tea. My cooking skills are virtually nonexistent, but I can use a microwave just as well as the next college student.
If my music is on, I’m listening to:
Nine times out of ten, you will hear Mayday Parade blasting in my car when you get in. I have bought every album since they first started. Currently, I’m finding other stuff that I really like. Some bands that are finding their way into the rotation: La Dispute, The 1975, To Speak of Wolves, The Neighbourhood, Bastille, Wolves at the Gate, and Pianos Become The Teeth.
Outside the office, I’m most likely:
When we aren’t at work, I’m the first one trying to find something to do outdoors. Back home you can find me coaching soccer on most evenings. Outside of that, I love fishing, bonfires, or just enjoying time with friends.
Who is your dream BFF? My best friends would definitely be Don Draper (Mad Men) and Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead). We are able to survive anything. From winning exclusive rights to advertise companies to surviving a zombie apocalypse, we take life one day at a time. Losing is never an option.
You are stronger than you think.
Remember, remember, remember.
