Austin City Limits Music Festival

Today was my first day back following a hospitalization myself and it is amazing seeing families deal with certain situations through a fresh set of eyes. On this particular shift, I was able to interact with a couple families I have met previously and as well as a couple I had not met before--and seemed to be at different stages of their treatment plans. Fortunately, they all seemed to feel comfortable and secure in their doctors here and were very grateful for the family room. The family room is not only a place to come and relax, but is also a place to gather and convene and discuss frustrations, seek advice from peers, take a load off, and just seek "adult" peer-to-peer guidance from others whom are in similar shoes. I was able to witness a couple of mothers support each other in describing the purpose a social worker vs a case manager and how to gain help when child needs to have surgery. I thought this was a wonderful moment. During this shift, I also was able to help the head nurse problem solve in figuring out where the sleep room key was located and how to retrieve it back for utilization of future families.

Really quiet evening over all, but was able to observe the challenges and family dynamics of mother and fathers when they have multiple children and an infant in NICU.

Worked with the Love Hope Strength organization promoting awareness to help people get on the list to become potential bone marrow donors and assisted running ACL Kiddie Limits. Wonderful atmosphere with energetic children and their families, The atmosphere allows me to practice becoming versatile and more outspoken with individuals.

During this last shift, I bonded with staff and experience the connected of patrons as they enjoyed the Kiddie limits section. Many are very appreciative to have accommodations for their children during such a huge event that actually engages them. I was also able to encourage a vendor to sign up on the list to become a possible bone marrow donor. Great wrap up to the year even though I did not experience any of the bands this year.

Gave 3.75 hours between Oct 14th and Oct 14th, 2018 with Steve Hicks School of Social Work, SW310 Fall'18 - Whalley 9:30am

I was late for this shift due transport complications but turned out to be a wonderful day anyway. Learned that there can be many communication breakdowns, but everyone can work together to overcome any obstacle quickly.

I was part of one of the teams that are posted near the Festival entrances, at designated spots near the entrances, or at or near the box office or at ticketing help desks near the Festival entrances. Us as Team members are the first people that patrons meet, and must be professional, outgoing and friendly, with strong customer service skills in order to interact with patrons from all over the world.

Fans have many questions as they enter the Festival or visit the box office, so our team needed to study the Festival FAQs, have a good sense of direction, and quickly learn and communicate any breaking information.

I had an amazing time volunteering for ACL not only for the amazing music and people I got to meet, but to be able to be a part of something so amazing as the LoveHopeStrength organization. I was truly moved by their message and passion.

The box office team is key to making the festival experience positive right from the start. Stationed at and near the box office, the team I was a part of helped direct patrons to the correct lines at the box office, answer general questions, and help patrons along so that lines move quickly and smoothly. I had the opportunity of being outgoing, friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful with other people. It’s a great way to interact with people from all over the country and the world.
