Today is the day: my six-month internship comes to an end.

I cannot believe how time flies! I was so anxious before I started my internship in February. I still remember my first day like it was yesterday. You can read all about it here.

Looking back, all the anxiety and worries were for nothing – a waste of time and energy! Don’t get me wrong: all that glitters is not gold. I have struggled and I had to ask for help. I got angry, was exhausted and wished I could stay in bed and sleep just a little longer every now and then. But I have learned more than I would have ever thought. I have learned a lot about communication, teamwork and work in general. I have learned to be more confident and to stand up for myself. On the other hand, I have learned to support others and to take criticism. But most importantly, I have learned that colleagues are not only people you work with but friends and family.

This sounds melancholic, sounds like the end – but it is not! I could not be happier that I have got the opportunity to keep working for a great company – and with great company. I will continue to be part of an amazing team that works hard and is focused. Because teamwork makes the dream work. And I will not stop working for my dream. So that I can eventually actually shop at the stores I pose in front of for an Instagram picture today.

Because I have things to do, places to be and goals to achieve. For myself!

  1. Sounds like a great experience and you have the right mindset – too many people go into internships and new jobs expecting them to be perfect, like it should ‘magically click’ and everything just feels right with no problems or bumps in the road, but that’s not realistic.
