What experience has ONE18MEDIA given you that you did not have prior to your internship?
I was able to come in and develop skills that I wanted to learn. The work environment there was amazing. The people were nice, and if I wanted to learn something new they would teach it to me.
What is something that you were able to build upon and expand during your internship?
I learned so much on WordPress and Photoshop. I came in not knowing much about either, but now I feel like a pro at Photoshop. There are so many WordPress elements, and my knowledge of those elements grew. Also, I learned how to keep social media updated for their clients, and how to schedule posts.
Describe any other feelings or educational experiences you have had at ONE18MEDIA.
The environment at ONE18MEDIA is so friendly. There are willing to help if you need help with a task. I was able to really strengthen my skills. I really did enjoy learning Photoshop. For the clubs I am a part of, I make flyers and social media posts. However, now being here and by making so many graphics, I now can do a lot more than I used to do before.

I recharge by listening to music while crafting.
