THREE NAMES OR NOTHING: Christine Grace Rendon doesn’t do what most Independent interns do. The sole listings intern this summer, the 20-year-old Santa Barbara native spends her afternoons assisting listings editor and fellow three-namer Devon Claire Flannery in getting the word out about the hottest upcoming events. Rendon, who plans to transfer from SBCC to UCLA in the fall, describes her experience so far at The Independent as having defied all expectations. “I was really afraid getting involved in journalism wouldn’t be what I expected,” she said. “But actually, it wasn’tand that’s exactly why I like it.” Follow Rendon’s work at independent.com/cgrendon.
