(Fall)ing for Lee & London: PR Intern Edition 

My first day as an intern at Lee & London started at 9AM. I woke up at 6AM. Maybe it was the excitement that I couldn’t contain about meeting everyone, or the fact that I’ve been waking up earlier than 6 for the longest time #LifeOfABarista, but I had absolutely no business waking up at 6 in the morning when my first commitment didn’t start until three hours later.

A lot of folks believe that any type of virtual experience, whether it be classes, happy hour, or internships, knocks down the impact it would’ve had if the pandemic didn’t happen. That couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, my first day as a virtual intern almost felt like I was physically coming in to the office, because it was still nerve-wracking meeting Brendi, the CEO, and Corinne, a senior publicist.

One of our first tasks as interns were to add our own bios into the L&L website (check us out here!), guided by Lindsey, one of L&L’s Account Coordinators. It may seem like a mundane task, but I honestly enjoyed the whole hour doing it — from using WordPress to doing front-end work, I felt like a webmaster until I met J.P., the Director of SEO (and a genius!), who showed the interns the real ropes of digital marketing. 

What makes this internship different from the ones that I had is that I truly felt like I was a part of a team at Lee & London. Today marks the end of my second week here, and I’ve already learned so much that I had to dedicate a whole page to my bullet journal. I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me!
