I am beyond excited, surprised, baffled, and completely humbled that I have been chosen as the winner of Nasty Gal & Refinery 29's Ultimate Internship Contest. Back in May, I entered this contest with the same type of cautious optimism you take to things like lottery tickets or scratch cards. I am so happy and honored to say that I actually won - I will be joining the Nasty Gal team for three weeks in LA, and the Refinery 29 team for three weeks in New York City. I can't wait to embark on this amazing journey and I'm still pinching myself over the fact that it's truly, actually happening.
After a whirlwind of a year, this exciting news just makes me more and more fortunate for the opportunities I've had. I can't wait to see what the future holds, and I would like to offer a huge thank you to both Nasty Gal and Refinery 29 for giving hope to fashion-obsessed, creative-type students like me! This is a total dream-come-true.
