I had no previous work experience in the fashion industry. As a result, I truly was learning things from my very first day. Fun fact: did you know the colour of your shoes is actually a 2-year-old decision? As well, it was fun to learn how important brand cohesion is important for marketing.
Living on my own for the first time in a foreign country has greatly influenced my new level of confidence and independence. I thought I had these qualities before, but they were only intensified after this co-op. It was exciting to be put in a brand new environment, even though at first it was terrifying. I am someone who is quite close to their family, but it was not a long transition period before I became comfortable being on my own. The first few months were difficult living alone, but the last few months were truly some of the best in my life.
