This is just the beginning of an amazing experience, and I am beyond stoked to be a part of the class 16 group of interns…however; instead of being in California with most of my class, I am stuck in Ohio working remotely. My plans are still up in the air for now of when I will be moving out to California, but I am hoping it is as soon as possible. In the meantime, I am currently in my last quarter of school and will graduate from The Art Institute of Ohio-Cincinnati in June with a BA in fashion marketing and management. Wait, back up…fashion? Yes, I have always had a love for fashion, music, art, and culture, but I have also found my real niche in activewear and my calling in action sports. In high school I started wakeboarding and soon enough, snowboarding, which has lead me here as an intern with Bamboo Skateboards!
I found this internship on an up and coming action sports careers website called Super Rad. Three weeks before I became an intern for Bamboo, I was constantly staying up until 3a.m. researching job posts because 1. I am a very determined person, and 2. I want to be in the action sports industry…like, yesterday.
So anyways, I found Bamboo’s internship post and I was automatically pumped after researching and learning more about the company. This program is literally one-of-a-kind. The in-depth experience, the culture, and the knowledge that we are going to gain from this is unreal! I am looking forward to learning more about the industry so I can take as much as possible with me into the real world.
Today, we are slowly coming towards the end of the first week and it has been a crazy ride so far. There is so much information to take in and keep up with, but one thing is for sure. I have met (not technically ‘met’, but you know what I mean) so many awesome people and have learned some valuable life
lessons. I am so grateful to be a part of this experience and I am excited to see what is next for Bamboo Skateboards, our class, and to be able to look back and see how much I have grown as a person after this!
