Alexandra Thompson (Intern, Columbia, SC, USA)

Alexandra is a recent graduate from the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business and Honors College. She wants to use her background in management to make sustainability issues a priority in live entertainment. For her Honors Senior Thesis, Alexandra provided resources for venues in Columbia, SC to modify their operations and reduce their environmental impacts.

In addition to being a virtual intern for the Sustainable Event Alliance, Alexandra is working on local events in Columbia to recruit volunteers and work with vendors. She hopes that with each event, she will continue to bring awareness to the environmental impact of events and transform the way attendees and event planners treat the environment.
