I signed up for my first networking event here in NY. NYC Creative Interns will be hosting the Find and Follow Your Passion event at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. It will be an all-day event filled with networking, career and internship fair, as well as, workshops.
As a challenge, I will be going alone. By nature, I am an introvert (with a tiny amount of extrovert), so it will be interesting to see how I can make myself meet people.
The event will be next Saturday, November 10. My goal between now and then will be to update my resume, learn about the speakers, and read up on the companies that I am interested in.
November is here
One and a half month(s) to go and I will be officially unemployed. I know, technically I am unemployed at the moment, but really I’m glad to be doing something productive.
I HAVE to start looking for that career path that I want to be in. Somehow, when I was going through the change of industry, from medicine to fashion business, I didn’t take into consideration what I really want to do in terms of the path I want to take.
Somehow I feel that I am not making sense.
I know that I definitely want to stay in New York after this internship. I know that I want to develop my path here. My conundrum lies in what job description I should focus my attention to. Do I want to be a merchandiser? Do I want to be a buyer? Do I want to be a product manager? Do I want to be a planner? The list goes on.
I probably read quite a few job descriptions and still I am stumped.
So, I guess I should start blogging again in order to figure it out. Start putting all the crazy thoughts in my head into writing.

It’s where I am posting pictures of my daily life in NY.
This week was not the best week I had. There was no inspiration flowing and my subconscious was reeling in sadness due to some loss that happened recently.
Thankfully, my brain decided to tell me to search for art galleries to visit here in NY and I happen to stumble upon The Sartorialist Exhibition at Danziger Gallery in Chelsea. Tomorrow’s the last day, so I will be trekking to Chelsea tomorrow to visit.
I love this city..
I started my internship (!) last Monday here in NYC. It’s been a wild week and a half but so far, I’ve been loving every minute of all the ups and downs of it.
I’ll tell more soon. But for now, I AM IN NEW YORK!
Taking a break
See you again sometime..
I am one of the many who have signed up for all the major social media outlets out there. I can say that I am well-aware of how they all work and how I can use each one to my advantage.

It goes without saying that when your future starts to flash right before your eyes you can’t help but cover yourself up with anything to keep it from blinding you. But when all is said and done, you still need to look through it and figure a way through it.
My future just changed for me this week and honestly, I’m still trying to comprehend it all. It’s a bit overwhelming to say the least. I’m excited and nervous at the same time.
A week in review…
We were fortunate enough to visit some of the global companies we know today. It was worthwhile to visit such companies and to learn about their roots was such an awesome opportunity.
Fact: Until recently, I never knew that the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy is where all the super cars (think Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati) of the world are being manufactured. I feel so lucky to have lived in this region and to see how how one is made from start to finish.
1. Ducati (Bologna, Italy)
2. Lamborghini (Sant’Agata Bolognese-Emilia Romagna Region)
3. Giuseppe Zanotti - Vicine SpA (San Mauro Pascolo, Emilia Romagna) - This was the one that got me so excited!! Picture below is me with the owner and shoe designer of the company.
4. Alessi Museum (Milan) - Industrial Design Museum
5. Scuola del Cuoio (Florence) - Leather School in Florence. Here’s me with my DFLG Colleagues.
