EFBC NEWS: Congratulating Cha Mi on her Promotion!

This month we are excited to announce that intern, Cha Mi Fung, has been promoted to Marketing Coordinator! We are excited to keep her on with us and looking forward to what she has in store for EFBC!

Please tell us about you experience as an EFBC Intern and prior experience prior to your time with us!

Reflecting on my journey, I have had the privilege of gaining invaluable knowledge & skills and working in a dynamic and collaborative work environment through my time as an intern at EFBC. Working closely with a teeny tiny but the BEST team, I had the opportunity to learn and grow, acquiring hands-on experience not only in marketing, but in event planning as well. Prior to joining EFBC, I had the opportunity to undergo management training in the hospitality industry at Hilton Chicago.

How did you hear about EFBC originally?

Well, let me take you back to my days as a graduate student at DePaul University. During that time, I was on the lookout for internships that could provide valuable real-world experience in the marketing field. My search led me to a job posting site affiliated with the university, where I stumbled upon EFBC and it caught my attention and curiosity!

What are you most excited about in regards to working for EFBC in a full time capacity as opposed to an intern?

As I step into this new role, I am most excited about the chance to be more involved in decision-making process and contribute fresh ideas to ensure our marketing efforts align with the organization’s goals and objectives. On top of that, now as a I hold a full-time position, I can fully immerse myself in the EFBC’s culture and build stronger relationships with my team as well as EFBC community. I look forward to taking on new challenges and contributing to the growth and success of our marketing and programming efforts!

In your spare time, what do you like to do for fun?

I absolutely love exploring new coffee shops and restaurants here in Chicago. Being a total foodie at heart, this has become a weekly tradition for me! If you have any hidden gem recommendations or favorite spots, I would love for you to share them with me! Beside indulging in delicious food, I’m also taking jiu jitsu classes and recently started attending salsa dancing classes!

What is your go-to karaoke song?

I have 3 staple karaoke songs!

  1. Imagine Dragons – “Demons”
  2. Adele – “Someone Like you” I gotta admit that I can’t hit those high notes though
  3. Black Eyed Peas – “I gotta feeling”
