INTERN LIFE: SOARING WITH BYRDIE

July 5, 2016

 

It’s me, Medgina! I’m officially the Byrdie intern under Clique Media Group, a tech and editorial influenced lifestyle establishment.

 

CMG is the company behind the fashion brand Who What Wear (style and entertainment), MyDomaine.com (home dรจcor and living) and Byrdie.com which is KEY to discovering every beauty secret you want to know. Specifically, I am the editorial intern for both the Senior and Associate Editor.

With all three branches, you’re able to find out the newest trends from an honest and fresh perspective. Sounds like a dream right?

 

I went through my first day as a Byrdie intern and it was impactful for three key reasons:

 

1. I was in New York. Me. Which initially doesn’t sound like a big ol hoopla but if you guys knew how green I am to the scene??? My first day was also the first day I was in New York alone. Even though I’m close to the city, my only call to go is if I’m going with friends. Seeing that I can only bombard Tarah with a hundred messages without going overboard ๐Ÿ™‚ …I clutch my phone for dear l i f e. Google maps and I officially are going steady and the relationship is moving at a fast pace. You see, I don’t look at streets when I walk around — I match what buildings/stores are being shown on the map. Do you see why I need to rely on the GPS so much? I am a visual learner to the complete ‘t’.

 
2. In my last post, I spoke about growing to be an active waiter in this whole process. While I was waiting, I kept tabs on Byrdie and went to work on the regular. I took all the shifts at Urban Outfitters as much as possible, whether it was 6 am in the morning or late at night. This taught me discipline and to have a sharper focus/care on what I do. My first assignment at Byrdie was placed on my lap once I headed in. It wasn’t what I expected but I’ve really learned to watch out for what can be thrown at me. For hours I sat at my desk (which is super legit — a desk for me!) and I didn’t notice that lunch had passed hours ago. My work ethic excited me because things can only get better the more I push myself.

 
3. As I was packing up to leave, it hit me that I was making a mark into the writer I want to be. The day went by without a hitch! And trust me, the way my life is set upโ€”it’s kinda guaranteed that I have a crazy story. It’s a bit nerve wrecking being at a new place, not knowing anyone around you but I whispered a couple prayers throughout the day to remind myself to breathe. One of my fav reminders is my bracelet that reads “Be Still.” It’s just a simple note to calm down, appreciate the moment and don’t allow myself to get overwhelmed.

Pretty soon, I’m going to have published work! I’m so excited to start these passion projects alongside such talented and creative people. The fangirling will probably never go away and the butterflies will probably always hang out for a bit in the pit of my stomach but that’s okay with me. I’m learning to spread my wings (get it? Bydrie) and enjoy the ride. Follow me along on Instagram and Twitter! Ah! I’m a Byrdie intern!

 

Much love,

    How exciting! I got excited just reading about your first day! I can relate to The NYC confusion. I remember my first time there, it was cray! But now I’m a self professed pro, I’on need no map… well most of the time! I hope you have an AMAZING time, learning and absorbing all the experience you can this summer!

  • Raise your hand if this is your season of countless trials ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพ Life has been so real for me -- I haven't been in the mood to do a lot of things, let alone post on insta. But I had to check in on you guys. It's so easy to act like you're all good around others. I'm a beast at that -- I can't not smile when I'm around people! But how are you when you're on your own? When you don't have to pretend life isn't breaking you down?

Smile, not because everyoneโ€™s counting on you, but for the sake of you. Let your light be a beacon of hope in your storm. No matter the outcome, know that ALL things are working for your good and God's got your rainbow on the other side. // NEW POST on adornedinarmor.com โœจ
