Living in New York by myself and knowing that I really impressed my supervisor.
I learned so much at my internship at The Row. I originally started off at their Elizabeth and James division which ended up folding but lucky ended up working in their higher end division at The Row.
Advice for others...
Work very hard and have a great attitude! Never complain and ask as many questions as you can. And don't forget to network!
