Back in June 2008, I touched down in New
York City as a bright eyed Saltire Foundation intern. I arrived in a world
where George Bush was president, Lehman Brothers was still standing and Justin Bieber was
uploading his first clip to YouTube. It was the second year of internships, I
was living in Manhattan and working with Starwood Hotels on 5th Avenue. Those 8-weeks sprung me into new aspirations,
a new confidence in myself and an incredible network of people.
When I interviewed for the Fellowship, I
was living in London and coming to the end of my graduate Marketing programme with
Sky. Sandy introduced me to the scale of this when he said ‘if
you think your internship was life changing – this will be like New York on
only on week 2. I agree already.
We’re living about 20 minutes from the
gorgeous Babson campus, where we have lectures 8am – 5.30pm 6 days a week. From
leadership to trends, from business models to innovation – it’s fast, full on
and incredible fun.
