I was responsible for...
During my internship, I did quite a few things. I assisted customers, did weekly visual merchandising changes, pulled garments and accessories for appointments, took pictures for their social media, and helped plan a photo shoot.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment from my experience was planning the photo shoot. It was cool to see all of the behind the scenes work it takes to put on a photo shoot. I learned a lot and the pictures turned out great!

I learned...
The greatest lesson I learned while at my internship is to not be afraid to ask questions. No matter how small or insignificant the questions may seem, it is better to ask and clarify than to do something wrong and have to do it again.

Advice for others...
My advice for future students would be to go an internship with an open mind and be willing to learn whatever they are willing to teach you even if it doesn't fall directly into what you originally thought your internship would be over. You will learn a ton that will help you in your future career!
