Hello everyone, wow it’s been so long since I last blogged – a month yesterday actually.
I’ve been super, super busy doing things. Like my internship. What internship you ask? This one right here.
It has been a crazy month and it has gone extremely fast, it only seems like yesterday I was mega excited to be starting and now I’m almost half way through.
A lot has happened in that month though. I have learnt a lot of valuable skills that have taught me a lot (and I mean a lot) about the fashion industry. People are either nice or horrible, there is no inbetween. Luckily, the majority of the people I have met have been the nicer ones.
I’ve learnt that, unlike The Devil Wears Prada, what you wear doesn’t matter. If you want to wear trackies to work, so be it. If you do, however, wear something nice, it will be noticed so that’s always something to determine you to dress the part. I got complimented on my shoes many times, thank you very much!
I’ve gained a few new contacts. Speaking to people is the best way of just getting yourself out there. People love confidence, especially future employers. And oh, the fashion industry needs confident people, trust me. If you’re shy and quiet, just leave now.
I’ve learnt quite a bit about myself and how I approach things. I like to be organised and do things to the best of my ability. I love to do things efficiently and work towards a goal, whether it’s reachable or not. I like being set high goals, it shows that people have trust in me and have faith that I am able to work towards them and hopefully achieve them.
I have also found out that I love fashion. I have been completely surrounded by clothing, shoes and accessories and I just love it. I love looking at it, talking about it and working with it.
It has definitely been an eye-opener to my future and my career prospects. It has told me that I should never be scared to do something, just go for it. The minute you begin to doubt the idea, is the moment that it all starts to crumble, your dreams become farfetched and the cracks begin to show. Would you rather regret something you didn’t do and never knew what would have happened or something that you did do and failed?
Failing is a chance to learn and grow. Failure is normal. Everyone has to fail to realise what is really needed to succeed.
Ok, I’ve jumped in way too deep. Back to reality.
What else has happened? I have gained some fantastic friends – Katie & Samantha (better known as Scarphelia and Nashbag.)
I have grown a lot as a person in the past month and I have really seen a lot of the world (well, London!) to show me that things are reachable, dreams are possible and to never look back. The past is done, gone and forgotten. Look the the future, aim for success and reach for the stars.
For now, ciao.
