My best experience so far was when I assisted the stylist in 3 consecutive campaign shoot.  

What has been your worst intern moment?

Nothing serious really. It's safe to say that there's nothing that one couldn't handle.

Where do you/did you go to look for internships?

For people who are not in school it's not easy to find internships here in our country and fashion styling/designing internships are very rare too. If lucky, you can find some on Instagram or you can look through the website of the company. In my case I visited their website.

I'd like to widen my knowledge in fashion styling as well as improved my writing skills.

Resting at home. My Fashion Editor gave me a day off. :) But yes, I am still an intern for almost 3 months now.

What's your career goal?

I want to be a successful stylist and if possible a designer too.

Where can people find you?
