In the past I know I have been very apprehensive as far as sharing what school I attend, but that is going to be a little more difficult with my new internship! Therefore, without further ado, say hello to your 2012-2013 FAMU Victoria Secret PINK Rep! Yes, I am a PROUD Rattler!
This is my second internship and I'm so excited about it! I've wanted to have this position for a looong time! I applied my at the end of my sophomore year and my ego was severely crushed when I found out that I didn't get it--but when you want something, especially something you're passionate about, you stay determined.
How did I get it?
Becoming a Victoria Secret Pink Campus Rep is VERY competitive! The brand speaks for itself! I didn't give up. I asked for immediate feedback from the internship coordinator to figure out what I needed to do to get the spot the following year. She mentioned that the young lady who got open position was involved in organizations that hadn't been reached out to yet. What better way to reach a new audience then start a new organization on campus? (Well..I kinda refurbished it...).
Caroline (internship coordinator) liked me enough in the interview process that she recommended me to the reps about joining their street team. I stayed on top of the reps last year like white on rice lol! I was a sponge! I got involved in as much as I could, helped them as much as I could. When Caroline came on campus for one of our events I made it my objective to ensure that she'd be able to connect my name with my face. The rest, as they say, is history.
What do I do?
First and foremost, I have to say that I am so pleased to represent my university among 55 other schools that have collegiate lines through PINK. As a #VSPINKRep it is our job to promote not only merchandise from Victoria Secret Pink, but specifically our individual school's collegiate line.
In doing so we are responsible for utilizing social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, Foursquare, etc.
I'm especially excited about the different events we'll get to host on campus! Tailgate parties, Bra bashes, Yoga, Zumba, OH MY!
Already I've been asked if the experience is overwhelming.When you look at the lengthy instructional book we were given at brand training YES! But now that I'm here, actually organizing and planning events, talking to people, really really getting into my work, I feel fine. Everything flows into place because a lot of the tasks that I have to perform I'm pretty use to or interested in learning more about!
Here is the latest video I've up loaded! Hope you enjoy!
