Hi my name is Alisha Lee and I’m from Wesley Methodist School (International). I’ve just finished my final term exams for year 10 (form 4). My school has this program called Work Experience for the year 10/ form 4s. In this program we are to find our own jobs and work for them for 2 weeks.
So, I started thinking. What were my requirements for my job? Was it the money? The brand? The experience? The people? I then and there came into a conclusion, to me, what was the most important was the learning. The process and what I can use what I have learnt for my future as an artistic freelancer, might it be in graphic design, illustration or animation.
I talked to many people and soon came across The Techy Hub through a friend of mine. She too was going to join this company. I did my research and made sure this was the right choice. I wanted to broaden my abilities and learn more about the digital world of art. The company was in the graphic design and advertising field which fulfilled my requirements moreover something I have never tried before.
Feeling adventurous, I thought to myself, why not? I then started to converse with Soon Seng, The director / Front-End Developer. After Soon Seng explained to me the positions available and had advise me to not pick too many choices, I finalized with the choice of social media marketing and graphic designing.
I’m excited to pick up some skills before heading back to the dull books in school and I hope to gain as much as I can from this internship. Stay tuned to this space to see what else we’ll be sharing.
