I have been told many times that when you are rejected, it really just means you are being redirected. And while I believed that, it was always hard for me to find proof that it was true.
About three weeks ago, I received an email that I hadn’t been chosen to intern for my dream company in New York City. This news came after the company told me that I was a great candidate, encouraged me to find housing (which is no easy task in Manhattan), and then strung me along for eleven weeks hinting that I had the position. I was heartbroken when I heard that I didn’t get the job, what was I supposed to do with my summer?
After getting back on track and applying applying applying to other internships, I have just been given the opportunity of a lifetime in Thessaloniki,Greece. Thanks to our close friends who helped with connections, I will be interning for Cotton Fashion, a clothing and textiles manufacturer who deals with Spanish brands like Desigual. I will be putting my Spanish to use working with these clients, and getting to enjoy the company of good friends while I am there!
I am so excited to see what this seaside city has in store for me, as always I will be updating this blog with adventures as the summer goes on!
