"I was placed at the digital publishing company, HYPEBEAST, in New York as part of the brand partnerships team. The team works with major brands to produce custom content including look books, video content or event production."
"I worked as a design intern on a full time basis for 4 months in which my role would vary from strategizing creative ideas, creating brand partnership proposals and a wide range of design related tasks."

"This internship has already changed the way I work and has driven me to be better in order to achieve my goals. I have expanded my network to a global reach and I have reflected greatly on my own career path as a designer. My skills and knowledge of the publishing industry have grown exponentially and my confidence as a designer is much stronger."
"ArtBound Initiative is an opportunity that I had to take. They put me in a situation that allowed me to excel and learn. I am incredibly grateful for all the support that they give and how they have set up myself and many other’s careers with the work that they do."
