Working for Culture Sock was a privilege, but unfortunately my internship is coming to an end. Through Culture Sock, I’ve been able to improve and develop new skills that will benefit me in the future for job opportunities, school work, and life in general. These skills include social media management, sales, and research, which are all very useful skills to obtain. Culture Sock has also taught me a lot about the retail industry and how things are sold, how they’re purchased, where they are made, and just the process behind everything that goes into retail. It was cool to get an inside scoop on how things operate in a business and opened my eyes and mind up to make me realize how people, including myself, take for granted all the work that goes into the little things of producing and selling merchandise. I was pleasantly surprised that this internship didn’t feel like a job, but instead felt like a club or a community full of creativity and unity. I think the fact that my job consisted of going to festivals such as the Frida Kahlo Festival, and gave me the freedom of exploring the vibrant atmosphere of the festival really helped me absorb the beautiful community and made me realize how lucky I am to have been able to work for a company that embraces and encourages creativity and diversity. However, it also consisted of having to do detailed research and social media managing, which were challenging tasks at times but overall manageable. Reasons like that is why I think I really enjoyed working for this company so much and why I am sad to be leaving it. In conclusion, I am so happy that I was able to experience the things I did and I am excited to take on the world with more knowledge now and a new set of skills.
