Itâ€™s only the middle of my second day at Twinkle, and already I can tell this is going to be a great way to spend the rest of my summer.Â As a fashion design major, watching designers at work â€“and helping them!â€”is an amazing experience.
Yesterday, despite being beyond nervous to start my new design internship, everyone was super welcoming to me as the new kid.Â My tasks so far have been great, I was so surprised that I actually got to draw a bit for my first ever Twinkle assignment.Â Later in the day I tried to wow with my Photoshop skills, but I wound up accidentally erasing my work, definitely not how I wanted to make a first impression!Â Fortunately, day two has gone more smoothly and my nerves have dissipated, thanks to everyoneâ€™s kindness.
I have to say, Twinkle provides the perfect environment for a summer internship, as its creative, friendly, and air conditioned!Â Iâ€™m still learning the ropes but I look forward to getting a taste of what life is like in the (stylish) shoes of a designer.Â Wish me luck!
