The term nears its final stage. The fruits of our labor begin appearing. Memories have been made, connections the same. It’s an experience like this that allows us to believe that our generation has the ability to do things that older generations may have doubted us for. With the term coming to an end, its moments like these that allow us to look back at what we’ve accomplished and surprise our peers, our mentors, and above all else, ourselves.
The craziest thing about it is that I’m just now beginning to feel like my internship is lifting off. Last week I was assigned my “big task”. My supervisor, along with the wonderful creative director at the agency, asked me to take on the responsibility of putting together a proposal. This is intended to be a blend of a case study and a pitch, with the end product being a deliverable to potential clients with the intent of convincing them why our agency may be the right one for them. I gladly took on the task and have been giving it full-hearted effort.
Another big take away from last week was a risk that I took with our creative director. I have a personal project that I’m working on, known as “Operation Bruno”, where I’ve begun a viral campaign that serves as a charity to raise money for a dog (for me). I told our CD about it and she actually got a kick out of it! I asked for her help in finding some way to contribute and she told me she’d be willing to help. Just like that, I had taken a risk and the risk paid off.
From here on out, I’m going to continue on this case study, build as many connections as possible, and do what it takes to set myself up for another invaluable experience at another awesome agency.
