Well I have been back from my internship for a little over a month now and it has got to be the most memorable summer in my twenty years of life, from moving to Philadelphia and in with five strangers, starting an internship that most girls would kill for, cutting off my hair, visiting New York, getting a new tattoo, adopting a cat, being an adult for the first time and paying rent, and meeting the most amazing people. I would say that the summer of 2015 was hands down the best.
I cannot believe how fast three months flew by. It feels like yesterday that I was standing in the Phoenix airport crying (yes you read that right, crying) my goodbyes to my family and friends. But then I was there and adjusting and making friends within the week. Only being two hours away from NYC was a huge bonus; I spent nearly every other weekend with my dad in the city and got to experience a whole new side of the city apart from the tourist attractions.
I worked a 9-6 hour internship in the photostudio under the stylists. I learned so much about the backside of the fashion industry, the good, the bad, and the ugly; meanwhile, my own style improved watching the best of the best style out amazing outfits. I was told that I became a valuable team member in my three months working in the studio and I firmly believe that. I met stunning models from all over the world, with amazing stories to tell, and yes, I did get to tie their shoes. Working next to an incredible photography intern, we created killer portfolios that I plan on sharing within the month. I beat the odds and I got there. I was one of the lucky ones.
The friends I made while in Philadelphia will be in my life till death. They have made a tremendous impact on my life and I look forward to reunited with them all soon.
