We would like to introduce you to Adriana, our in house Blogger and Marketing Intern. Adriana has been working with us since June. She currently creates gorgeous weekly blog posts for us full of creative graphics and will soon be taking over our @haveyoumetheryetpodcast account on Instagram.
Tell us a little about yourself
I’m Adriana, I’m 23 years old I’m originally from El Salvador but I moved to Canada 4 years ago to get my BBA in business specializing in marketing. I love learning new things and working on new projects, being busy keeps me going!
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.
Before coming to Canada I had always considered myself a very shy and laid back person. But after making the decision to move to a new country with people I barely knew I discovered that I like going outside my comfort zone even if I feel scared at times.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.
I actually never learned how to ride a bike or swim I was so scared of the last one that my mom just felt bad seeing me cry before each class! I also got my passion for writing and reading from my grandfather, I learned how to read at a young age because of my him, he used to read the newspaper every afternoon and I would just copy everything he did until I actually learned how to read the words!
Three words to best describe you.
Indecisive, Committed, Caring
Before with Pink Crown Creative, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
The most unusual job I had was last summer doing door to door surveys, it was quite the experience but it taught me how to talk to customers, how to be committed and how to deal with angry customers as well!
Motto, favourite quote or personal mantra?
“So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it” – Sheryl Sandberg
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
LA with my friends, it was so much fun I went to Disney for the first time with my best friend!
You’re happiest when?
I’m on my bed watching a good TV show and eating chocolate chips! I also love listening to music late at night!
How do you define success?
Success for me is working in something I am really passionate about and that I have worked really hard for.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
Get a job at the marketing department of a book publishing house
What did you want to be when growing up?
I wanted to be an accountant for the longest time, I guess I was still trying to copy everything my grandfather did.
What is on your bucket list?
Visit Dubai and Tokyo at least once before I die, I am so intrigued by the two completely different cultures!
What is your favourite movie, tv and book?
I can’t decide on just one movie so I’ll do my top two: Guardians of the galaxy and Pride and Prejudice. One is a huge comic relief and the second one is just a really good romantic movie! My favorite tv show is The Office for sure! If I’m ever feeling down I love just re watching any episode it really lifts up my mood! My favorite book is Cinder by Marissa Meyer, it’s a fun dystopian series that puts a twist to the normal Cinderella story, definitely recommend it!
What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
I like going to the gym, watching Netflix, reading, writing and hanging out with my friends!
What makes you the most excited about being a part of the Pink Crown Creative team?
I love creating weekly content for a company that is so passionate about women and their role in the business world! Also, with my weekly research for my posts I learn so much about multiple topics, I am so excited to share tips on how to do business and create fun and appealing designs to share with everyone!
