For the last few months I was given an opportunity to work with Sponsor Me Awards as an intern/admin co managing for their upcoming Eco London Fashion Show.It was cleverly crafted to act as a progressive funding platform to emerging young Eco fashion designers. Sponsor me was born to create diversity with many talents, for the talented designers to showcase their outfits on the catwalk in front of many people.
Firstly, many eco designers had to use social networking sites to gain votes via Facebook, twitter etc for the ultimate top 9 spaces. Further on to gain as many votes as possible it was very competitive; it was a tough call! Incredibly hard to let go of the other talented contestants. Soon the deadline approached and the last 9 were chosen to showcase on the London fashion show.
This was exciting to reveal the top 9!I managed their social network sites. I was so amazed at the sweet messages and feedback from so many people, even fans from across the world who love Eco fashion!In addition, the company was a platform to present Eco designers and help raise awareness about the industry. Provided a prestigious event in London with press and buyers from London and to the General public. Our preferred charity was Centre Point - give homeless young people a future. Proud to participate and engaged with incredible like minded people.The day was SPECTACULAR. Interviewed by Sky, press, journalists and other designers. Helped out backstage and managed the ticket section as well as watching the show -front row! A close friends was one of the models and felt good knowing I calmed her nerves and we enjoyed the day together. Whole process and preparation was stressful but when it finally came together it was beyond perfect. Food and beverages available as well as photos taken by the photographer and goody bags! Networked with many people and learnt a lot in a day! Felt good to be part of a well established team!
Overall, I experienced so much throughout this internship and have been blessed to be given the responsibilities from a young age with no previous related experienced. I was close to giving up on this purely because of an incredibly hard time I went through, which made me quite depressed for a while and could barely concentrate on important aspects in life.. BUT couldn't let this go because of personal issues and did not let it effect my journey and let my strength from within take over. Don't forget to get yourself out there, BE KIND, offer to help out - you never know how you'll meet! ALWAYS be professional and send over your CV!NEVER GIVE UP.
Seriously, life can be hard and there will ALWAYS be obstacles but you have to stand up and give it 100% There's always light at the end of the tunnel and life's too short to be anything but happy. Recently was given ANOTHER internship placement less than a week later.. A dream opportunity and couldn't have come at a better time in my life.. I will discuss this further down the road, as for now. I hope you enjoyed this post! I start my new dream internship tomorrow! Wish me luck :D
