I was responsible for...
I worked along side the seamstresses helping sew the garments. I did hand stitching, machine sewing, and beading.

I accomplished...
Learning different hand sewing techniques and also learning how to bead.

I learned...
I dealt with a language barrier with my co-workers but even having some difficulties I was able to overcome it and still learn so much from working there.

Advice for others...
I would stress not to be intimidated by all the sewing. Sometimes you think you aren't good enough or unsure if you can but everyone was so helpful and willing to work through it with you. It was a wonderful internship and I feel I was exposed to a lot.
