My name is Allena Wright and I am a new Intern at Red Door! I am looking forward to making new connections and gain a deeper understanding of the world of real estate. I am currently a senior at Buffalo State College majoring in Business Administration. I am constantly told by professors and advisors to be active in the field of my major, to find something I like and apply myself. I’ve loved my time here and the people I have met. I know I made the right choice.
I am originally from Brooklyn, NY but I live in Elmwood Village completing my final semester of undergrad. I love Elmwood for the food and the small shops, it makes me feel like I am still in Brooklyn. I miss being home often but I can go to a nice restaurant/cafe and feel like I never left. I am interested in getting to know Buffalo more before I graduate and visit as many places as I can.
Besides being a student and intern, I am also on the Executive Board of an organization on my campus, Kinks, Curls, And Coils. At our weekly meetings, we discuss hot topics and allow students to express their opinions in a safe space. When I am not at Red Door, in school, in meetings or at work I enjoy meditating, listening to podcasts and making my own beauty products. Just last week, I made myself a conditioner out of coconut milk and honey!
Although this is my second internship in the field of real estate, I already know this one will be different. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Here I can sharpen not only my business skills but my networking skills as well, stress-free. If you see me eating my overnight oats in the morning at my desk, feel free to say hello.
