We typically have interns from The USA only, but we met Shannon from South Africa and fell in love. She has an incredible “can do” attitude and a great personality and we just had to have her. We thought you might like to learn more about her too, so we asked her some questions. Enjoy:
Full name and nickname?
My name is Shannon Adriaan. Recently I have been called ShanSwag which is my favorite nickname that has ever been given to me- and I’ve been given A LOT.
Currently in my last year of my graphic design course at Inscape Design College, in Cape Town South Africa.
The graphic design course covers EVERYTHING within graphic design. We don’t focus on a specific field so I am super diverse at the moment. That also means we get a lot of work assigned to us within the 3 year course.
What made you choose Sircle Media?
My dream is to come and move to America, get a farm, get my horses and work. Been dreaming of New York my whole life so when it came to looking for an internship I wanted to grab the opportunity and Sircle Media gave off such a fun, energetic energy which I love. I have loads of energy so its great to find a place that I can feel comfortable being energetic with too.
Most surprising discovery/realization after working here for a couple of weeks?
No surprises just yet, but since I’m interning remotely and my hours go into 1am, I have realised I need a proper coffee machine. LOL
What is the best part of your internship?
I’m all hands on deck for the internship because I love to learn new things about the industry I’m about to go into. I love being able to develop on my own skills and learn new things in the process!
What can you tell us about Adam or your supervisor?
There isn’t one person who I have spoken with, who I don’t think is lovely. They are so great to deal with, from the one-to-one communication, to the mass e-mails, everyone is super friendly and on board! That part is so so refreshing and great to see.
Advice you would give to a future intern?
If you’re not a coffee lover, become one.
