Elvira Makk Frid just recently joined SACC Texas as a Event Marketing & Member Relations Intern. She
is based in Houston and will help SACC Texas with member relations and event management.
Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
“I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, but moved to the US when I was 8. My dad works for Sandvik, a
Swedish company, and has had the opportunity to work in several different states. I have lived in SC,
NC, NJ, VA and FL, but my family has been in the Houston area for about a year. I currently attend
Florida State University, where I am majoring in economics.”
What made you interested in joining as an intern?
“After researching internship opportunities, I came across SACC Texas and immediately became
interested. The ability to put my Swedish and American background to combined use, as well as the
extensive networking opportunities particularly stood out to me.”
What do you hope to accomplish as an intern?
“While interning at SACC Texas, I hope to bring fresh ideas and viewpoints to the table. I look forward
to expanding my experience within member relations and event management, while assisting the rest
of the team with any task at hand!”
How have you been staying in shape during this quarantine?
“During quarantine, I have been staying in shape by running and doing CrossFit! My mom is a CrossFit
coach, so I am lucky to have her to workout with everyday.”
