So, I started interning at Tibi this week, and let me tell you...it's pretty much amazing. I walked in on Monday, super nervous, but ready. When I arrived, I was greeted by my boss (what do you call this...mentor, teacher, supervisor...?) who introduced me to everyone in the office. Then, I was given an array of tasks such as rolling fabric, cutting patterns, steaming and ironing clothes. That afternoon, my (let's just call him my boss) boss gave me a list and sent me to midtown where the fashion district is. It's basically a zoo in that part of town, and not my favorite, but since my major is Fashion Design, I'd better get to know it well. Over the last three days I have gotten to do so much, and I love it!
After such a short amount of time, I have been submerged in all things fashion. I know I still have a TON to learn, and I haven't even scratched the surface yet. I just feel like I am in the right place. As I was cutting patterns yesterday, I was thinking to myself how happy I am to be here in this moment. I don't mean to get all mushy, but I'm going to. It's never too late to do what you have a passion for. I am exhausted beyond words at the end of the day, but so happy. Sure, it feels weird to be the same age as some of the people I intern for, but whatever. They are super nice, and I am blessed beyond words to be able to do this. Change is hard, but when you want something bad enough, you have to make it happen!
I am so ready for the Spring semester to start at Parsons so I can continue down this super fun, challenging road. Wish me luck!
