looking for AMAZING interns for the fall season!
tell us a little bit about yourself…
i have two sisters, whom i adore, supporting parents, a grumpy grandpa and a great brother-in-law. these are the persons i love the most in the world.
i graduated from business school some years ago, immediately after doing so i started working on the advertisement industry. it was great for a while, i got to meet lots people, learned about business and communication and worked in big campaigns with big brands. however, at some point I realized this was not what i wanted for the rest of my life. i decided that managing my time and having more control over my own projects was what I was looking for. this is when I started working to learn new things and develop my creative/crafty skills.
while all this happened, my older sister was getting married! it was a perfect timing because as we did all the planning I found myself at the flower market to help her choose the ceremony trimmings. it was so inspiring that i immediately decided this was what i really wanted for me, open my own flower shop.
how did find flower girl and what attracted you to it?
my sister recommended me the flower girl on instagram, shortly after i started following them and that is how I found the internship :)
as soon as i knew about this opportunity i contacted the girls, some mails later i came to new york to have a hands-on experience at the flower girl.
where did you grow up, and what was the most positive aspect of growing up there?
i grew in mexico city metro area, but now i live in the city center. i must say it is a great place, where you can find all sorts of people, full of contrasts, colors and things to do. it resembles me in some ways to new york. also mexico is characterized by its traditions, which remind us our roots but are flexible enough to evolve and merge with new ideas and trends.
after living in two of the biggest and brightest around the world, i think cities are those places where something is always going on, which inspires you and put at your fingertips a whole load of opportunities ready for those eager to take full advantage of them.
what inspires you?
music, long table talks with my friends and family, getting lost in the city to discover new places and most definitely crowd watching, kind of a stalker practice yet very fun!
what is your favorite part of the flower world?
i have two, choosing the flowers and the idea of being part of a special moment for someone.
what is your favorite animal and why?
i love dogs, it is a lot of fun playing with them or just knowing they are nearby. i also like hens and roosters, i really do not know why but I find them cute, maybe this is telling me I should live in a farm :)
where do you see yourself in 5 years?
traveling around the world and with my flower shop growing.
what one word would you use to describe yourself?
optimistic, i always like looking at the bright side of things and situations.
what do you do for fun/to relax?
i love concerts, going to the movies, table talks, dancing and running.
what is your favorite food to eat and or prepare/share?
my favorite food is mole, a spicy sauce prepared in Mexico with tons of ingredients. Every region has small variations; those coming from Oaxaca and Puebla are the tastiest. i also love burgers, the perfect combination of bread, meat, cheese and veggies.
what is your best travel experience and why?
this trip to new york is definitely one of the best. it is the first time i travel by myself and for a long period of time. during this trip i have learnt a lot about me, for instance, solving things by my own, time management, and that new york is a great city. <3
