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!
