School of Management and Communication
Intern at Elle Magazine, Singapore
Covering stories allowed me to go out for press launches, interviews and meet new people which was very exciting. With this eye-opening internship, I had the opportunity to interview celebrities such as celebrity chef Rachel Khoo, and my personal favourite: Isaac Wright (who plays Bran Stark on Game of Thrones).
I believe that my internship was a stepping stone for me to get a taste of the wellness industry.

So, I’d say overall my overseas internship in DigiPen was a great adventure and I will never trade that experience for anything else.
