As I am sure is true for most of us, this is my last week as an intern. I have enjoyed my time here so much that I am being hired on as a part time employee for the next year! I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me. It seems everyday I am reminded of why I am majoring in interior design. My time as intern has allowed me to grow in both knowledge and confidence. I am now more comfortable sharing my opinions on projects, and Jason has trusted me with so many tasks that I knew I was capable of but most would not allow an intern to do.
Last week, I specified every piece and part of the office furniture for the College of Nursing. Thankfully, I pay close attention to detail or that task would've been a nightmare!!! We went through the plan and each line item to make sure everything was correct before it comes time to place the order.
Yesterday, I sat down with the project coordinators at the College of Nursing and helped them select fabrics for the tackboards and chairs. They picked out two fabrics that they loved and I helped coordinate the rest of the fabrics for the spaces. They told me that some of the fabrics I picked they would have never given a second look, but once I paired them with other pieces, they looked like a million bucks! I think my smile stayed on my face all afternoon. I loved the trust they put in me on such a major part of the project. I am now creating a finishes board for the faculty to see what we have chosen for their new building. I hope they love it all as much as the others have so far!!
