Sadly, it was my last week at Lucy Choi London, and every moment was bittersweet. For the last two months I fell into the routine of waking up at 7am, catching the circle line to Bayswater, walking passed countless tourist shops and Indian restaurants, and making the turn onto the quaint Porchester Square.
The decision I made over a year ago to embark on an international internship program as opposed to a domestic internship program in the US proved to be more valuable to my education than I could have ever imagined. Having the opportunity to work alongside luxury shoe designer, Lucy Choi, has given me an overwhelming amount of knowledge, insight, and experience needed in order to understand the realm of global business and the fashion industry. My two-month taste of the operations behind a business with so much potential and excitement for the future has only intensified my desires to one day work abroad.
Hopefully, I will not I have to wait forever to turn those dreams of working abroad into a permanent reality. Due to all of the work I have done these last two months to help out in the office and also boost the activity of her social media accounts, Lucy has extended the offer to keep in touch while I finish my schooling in the states, still be a part of her team and help with social media, and also come back and work for her in London in two years time. Needless to say, I could not be more excited for what the future holds! Thank you FIE, thank you Lucy Choi, thank you London.
