Meet Our Summer Intern: Tucker
If you’re an Anthem House resident, or frequently hang out and enjoy our property, you may have seen Tucker walking about! Tucker, a Marylander and rising Senior at NC State, is our summer intern and we couldn’t be happier to have him. Let’s learn more about Tucker, and be sure to say hi if you see him!What is/are your favorite: Book: American Sniper Movie: The Departed Color: Blue Food: Chick-fil-a Animal: Monkey Sports Teams: Ravens, Orioles, Capitals, NC State Wolfpack What is your major? Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing What is your role at Bozzuto and how does it relate to what you want to do when you’re graduating? I’m a Sales and Marketing Intern at Anthem House. I basically mirror everything a full-time Sales and Marketing Associate does. I work with leads, give tours, lease apartments, complete competitor reports, and various other tasks that provide me with great experience. When I graduate, I am aiming to do something with sales in the real estate market, and I’d love to stay in Baltimore. This internship is preparing me so well for a full-time job and I couldn’t be more thankful. What was your first impression of Anthem House? My first impression of Anthem House was something along the lines of,“Are you kidding me? I really get to call this place my office for the summer?” The building itself is so innovative and remarkable inside and out. The amazing views of the harbor and city skyline make my jaw drop every time. It’s a perfect example of how a development can positively transform a community, and we’re fortunate enough to be located in such a coveted area of Baltimore, which is Locust Point. What has been your favorite part of your internship so far? I think my favorite part of the internship has been meeting residents and making their living experience the best it can possibly be. I want people to walk out the front door with a better opinion of Anthem House than when they walked in. Also, I can’t forget about my team. My coworkers are some of the most funny, hardworking and caring people I’ve ever met. They have made my internship so enjoyable. What are some of your favorite things to do in Baltimore? Baltimore is such a fun city. I think my favorite things to do are go to O’s and Ravens games of course. Also, my coworker and I just rode those new “Bird” motorized scooters to the Inner Harbor on our lunch break and it was such a blast. We were all dressed up in our work clothes riding them so it was pretty hilarious. I definitely recommend giving them a try. What’s the thing you miss the most while you’re away at school? I miss my dog Rudy the most when I’m at school. We got him when I was in Kindergarten, so he’s been my buddy for as long as I can remember. He’s 16 years old and currently blind and deaf, but he somehow still has the energy of a puppy. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? If I could travel anywhere in the world I think it would either be Ireland or Greece. These places are where my parents’ families are from, so I think it’d be very cool to see the exact towns where my ancestors lived. Not to mention how breathtakingly beautiful they both are. What would be your “perfect” day? I have 16 cousins on one side of the family, so I think my perfect day would be all of us sitting around a bonfire having a good time at our beach house during the summer. I’m lucky to have such a big, loving, close-knit family and I always look forward to seeing them every time I’m home. What are your hobbies? When I’m home in Maryland, my hobbies include going to music festivals, kayaking on the Severn River, and catching up with my friends from high school on the Eastern Shore. I lived in Easton, MD until I graduated from high school, so I always enjoy seeing my good friends that still live there. I’m also the T-Shirt Chairman for my fraternity at NC State, so I always love making shirts with cool designs for the guys. How do you live your Anthem? I live my anthem by striving to make people’s days better and putting a smile on their faces. As my friends know, I love to make people laugh. Something as small as a nice greeting or small laugh can change someone’s outlook for the day. I aim to make each of our residents feel appreciated and cared about and I think it’s very important that any apartment community does this because building positive relationships with your residents is so crucial. Any advice for future Bozzuto interns? My advice to future interns is to not be intimidated, but try to challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone. Jump right into things and get all the experience you possibly can. I started taking tours on my second or third day working and it truly helped me quickly build up my confidence. Be hungry for more leases and don’t settle to be average. This internship provides you with elite sales experience that will prepare you for so many jobs outside of college. I can’t thank Bozzuto and the Anthem House team enough for giving me this amazing opportunity. Shaping the Future of Community Development We’re fortunate to have such a dedicated, hardworking, and knowledgeable intern like Tucker. Do you know someone that would be a good fit for our internship program next summer? Have them contact us to start living their Anthem!
