A Unique Internship

As Carriage Realty’s Social Media Intern for the past year, I can say that my experience has been fun, busy, and most importantly, educational. During this time, I have been able to participate in fun videos, volunteer, and learn a great deal about the real estate industry. I am grateful for the knowledge I’ve gained working alongside so many wonderful people who have taught me not only about real estate but much more.

Life Changes

This year, I made the decision to transfer to the University of Minnesota, and I am absolutely loving it. Transferring schools was a major life switch that has proved to be nothing but worth it. Living in Minneapolis, surrounded by friends and cats, has made this year rewarding. As a graphic design student, I have been incredibly fortunate to have had an internship that helped me in my creative pursuits while also honing my skills like time management. I am proud to add these abilities to my skill set.  

My Art Prints

I have also had an incredible chance to sell some of my art at one of my favorite Minneapolis stores: Queenie and Pearl. After countless times shopping and admiring the art prints for sale by local artists, I realized that I could do the same. I contacted the store and forwarded a collection of art print portraits I made of iconic 20th century women in a pop art-inspired style. I was thrilled when I heard they liked the prints and agreed to sell them in their shop! Here’s a sampling of my work:

I can only hope to continue to grow as an artist, student, and employee. I cannot thank the amazing people in my life enough for helping me along the way. Karen Stang and the entire Carriage Realty team have given me invaluable experiences that are sure to aid me in the rest of my professional career. And the next time you go thrifting, stop by Queenie and Pearl to check out my prints!
