Journal Six

So I finally got a fixed schedule for my internship.

Tuesday 10am-5pm; Thursday 10am-5pm; Friday 10am-5pm.

These were my fixed day. So, far this week seems like years as people are talking about some kind of virus that is effecting China and everything is getting worst there. I feel like I need to read more news rather than becoming surprise at my co-workers’ chitchats. But I had a nice 3 days at the internship. We finally got to come up with a designer for the clothing tag and also considering some colors for it. And I have working with Mathew for the colors and Esther was working with another designer that came from L.A. location.

On 20th February, it was my first day at my internship. I got to met with the senior designer who will be supervising me and her name is Esther Abadi. She is such a nice person, very polite but also very strict on the deadlines as she mentioned. I also met the junior designer and he was Mathew. I forgot his last name; it was very hard to remember. I don’t have my own desk but I use a desk of my junior designer. And that desk is just beside my supervisor so I was very happy and excited to work her. So, I have introduced myself to everyone when we gathered in the conference room. Everyone left after the introduction but only the designer were in that room. We jumped on the working discussion. They were currently sketching on clothing tags. We all got to share some idea. As I didn’t have class till six so I stayed full time on that day. I got to know the place better, learned about more people and catch up really fast as I can remember them from top of my head. Therefore, I have enjoyed my first day a lot.

Journal Four

So this week I have applied to 15 internship slots. I heard from the company that I sent my designs to. The company’s name is Sportswear. The owner personally talked to me over the phone and said he really liked my design and would love to work with me as an assistant designer. He also mentioned that he love the new ideas of young generation which inspires him. I went to interview on 19th February and I had a good interview but he didn’t ask me any question except he was talking about my designs and how I invade them. We talked about the time management and my schedule also he said that 2 days a week but full time office hours. Sometimes it maybe more than 2 days a week depending on my schedule. So finally I am ready for my internship.

Journal Three

This was the third week, my tension was getting into the level where I started feeling that I will not get any internships and also haven’t heard from the past two interviews that I have attended so far. I have sent some design that I did in the class for my projects and also did some designs for them to look at but till now I didn’t get any other interview dates not heard from the company that my dad got an offer fo me. But I didn’t lose any hope I kept on applying to different places and asking everyone where else can I apply for internship. This really got me in to a situation where all I was thinking about internship and forgot about other classes as there were holidays back to back in two week plus the virus awareness were all around the world. Too many things around us was going on.

Journal Two

We are on week two already. I haven’t heard from any of the companies except two. I went to two of the interviews. One interview went very well only one problem I faced there was that I did not have any experience in working with a company related to the position that they are hiring. And the second interview I went next day was there were too many people on line in the interview to be selected from without any experience. I kept on applying to different companies for any openings for interviews or any part time job positions. The maximum I applied in a day was 5-10 application. And there was one good news but not a confirmed one. My father is a textile engineer and his buyer gave him an offer for me to work for him as a assistant designer but for that he wanted to see my designs and if he likes them then he will hire me. So, there was still hope for me to get something soon. The event networking that I was suppose to go to I couldn’t attend because by the time I went to purchase the tickets first time the payment didn’t go through and the second time it said sold out. I was upset but still didn’t lose hope that I will go to the next networking event without a miss unless any health emergency comes off.

Journal One

Week one has already that we had our first class I am still figuring out how this class works. I have applied to about 20-25 places for internship/part time job. I did not hear anything from any of the companies yet. But I am still trying to find one so that I can pass this class and meet the criteria. I thought I will have fun in this class but it seems like no fun until there is a confirmed internship only worry for internship. Not loosing hope still. I am looking forward to go to this networking event on fab 7th this week. I am excited to go at this event.

Video

This is a video from the Thanks Giving weekend. I went on a vacation during the long weekend with my family. We went to Poconos, Pennsylvania. This video shows the beautiful view from the back of the house. And a small firework activity with everyone at night. The second day the lake was frozen due to the temperature drop.

LOGO

This logo represents my childhood and the love that was given by my family. When I was born  my grandmother gave my nick name Twinkle because she thinks I came to their life like a shinning start. And I was the first daughter in the family may be because of that they called me twinkle by love. Even though everyone called me by Twinkle at home  but it was never put officially on my birth certificate.
