My responsibilities during my internship are facilitating three weekly virtual fitness classes, creating marketing materials for events, running virtual events and boot camps, creating CVENTs, running challenge grants projects, social media marketing, and writing press releases.


During my internship, my greatest accomplishment was moderating and leading an event with over 4500 registrants, which led to thousands of engagements and made people notice the company more. I created the flyer, set up the Zoom meeting, was in touch with volunteers, talents, and staff, and was in charge of recording and making sure to answer questions.

Learning experience

The greatest lessons I learned during my internship experience are to always think out of the box, to be myself at all times, and to put myself out there. I knew that by doing so, I could achieve things, and it would make me happy with the result and be appreciated by my colleagues.

What advice would you give?

There is no luck, and there is no accident. You are where you are because that is where you are supposed to be. Keep giving your best in everything, and you will achieve your goals.
