How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Who said millennials are lazy? Santa Barbara native Andie O’Donnell, currently on summer break from UC Berkeley, where she’s soon to start her junior year in Media Studies, is not only taking an online journalism class; she’s also a counselor at Jon Lee’s Beach Volleyball Camp through S.B. Parks & Recreation in the morning and interning at The Santa Barbara Independent in the Calendar department in the afternoons, selecting events for The Week in the city that she loves. That’s some summer “break.” Judging from her accomplishments as an intern, this millennial is industrious, intelligent, hard-working, admirable, and a delight to be around.
