This fall semester I will be working alongside the team of Alzerina Jewelry which is located in Brooklyn, New York. Due to COVID-19 Its a remote internship I’ll be taking from August 27th to December 17th so a bit over three months to help design their logo, Instagram/Facebook story posts, designs for their social media. I applied/found out about them through Indeed being they were the many internships I applied to and the only one to truly reach out to me for an interview. I was so grateful that they responded since I was quite worried after weeks of applying and not hearing back from any had gotten my hopes down. Though the interview process was great and I got to learn a bit more about Alzerina and what she would expect of me when/If I started working for her.
I am extremely glad to be working with them since a lot of their values as a company aligns with my own. Not only that a part of my dreams growing up was to have both a jewelry line/makeup brand. It’s interesting because for my senior project it was between those two topics for me to create either Jewelry or makeup up brand. I ended up with Red Velvet Beauty but still would love to make Cherry Bomb (name of my Jewelry Brand I would have created). So working for her will hopefully be a great learning experience so I know what to potentially be prepared for when that time comes.
Some interesting facts about Alzerina Jewelry: They could be found in fashion magazines and on the sets of Warner Bros and Disney productions. Many celebrities including Sharon Stone, Olivia Wilde, and Katheryn Winnick wear her jewels. Miss Universe 2017, Miss USA 2017, and Miss Teen 2012/2013 are among her clients. Also, their goal is to develop a scholarship for underprivileged children in Cape Verde, Africa, to attend college. Through this scholarship, children from poor and struggling families will have a financial opportunity for education. The children we hope to help are those from severely financially struggling families that even the thought of attending college is the dream for them. They want to give these hopeful children the means to fulfill their dreams and work towards a future they never thought they could have which is something I valued in a company. Though the CEO is what intrigued me to apply since she started from is the fact she started from nothing to becoming a woman boss who strived to get where she is at now. She left Cape Verde for Paris in early 1990 where she learned the craft of jewelry making while living in Paris. That’s when she had fallen in love with the Swarovski brand and it was at this time that the idea of becoming a jewelry designer began.
