We hope that you’ve been enjoying the blog series featuring the ‘Top Three’ things that our interns recommend each week. But who are these interns..? Here’s some info about them. Read the top three lesser-known facts about them that they have chosen to share with us!
1 – I am a Pescetarian
About 7 years ago I decided to make a big change in my life to create a healthier lifestyle. I gave up all meat besides seafood in April of 2010 when I was only 15 years old. It was not the easiest transition, but it was what I wanted to do, so I stuck to it. Within two years, I lost over 60 pounds and have kept the weight off consistently. This is an accomplishment I strongly identify with because it has driven my passion for health advocating. One thing I love to do, is spread knowledge about how important healthy living is to each individual, and how it can affect almost everything about your existence.
2 – I am very passionate about photography.
I have always loved photography but I have not always been consistent with working on this skill until very recently. I went on a week-long photography camp, back in America, and remember winning a free ice cream for winning most pictures taken, and they didn’t tell us about the prize until after our time there. We created mini portfolio’s and I admired my work so much, but after camp I didn’t continue as heavily. I bought a Canon Rebel camera this past Christmas and have been loving every second with my camera ever since. There can be so much power behind a photograph, and my love for this art never seems to fade.
Myranda’s beautiful photos have been featuring recently on a lot of our posts and marketing material. We think she she deserves more than just an ice-cream for her talent! 🙂
3 – My favourite colour is orange.
Since I can remember, brown was always my favourite colour growing up. I always wanted to have a different favourite colour than anyone else so I would always go with brown. Then I grew up a little, and began to love the colour Maroon because it was close to brown but also close to red and slightly close to purple. I even dyed my hair a few times purple and maroon! My recent love for orange started about a year ago, I saw an orange backpack by Osprey and bought it instantly. I began to see orange more and more because I found it so attractive, and I just recently bought a beautiful orange floral scarf here in Cape Town to remind me of all the good memories here. What I find nostalgic about the colour orange is how an old friend of mine used to adore this colour, so it always reminds me of my friend Aundrea.
Also the Streetwires Corporate Colour, so a good thing Myranda came to do an internship here 🙂
1 – I from French Guiana
French Guiana is on the South America border to the North of Brazil. It’s an old colony of France. There is a big cultural mix in French Guiana and the landscape is very rich with the Amazonian forest that is a big part of our country. We have only two seasons: Sun and Rain and the temperature it’s about 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year. It’s one of the best places to live, so peaceful.
2 – I like to cook
In my country we cook a lot. We love food, and we have a lot of special dishes, so when I started to live on my own, I began to cook small things and step by step I learned how to cook very well, and now I cook almost every day.
Editing this at lunchtime makes me think I need to test some of Alex’s dishes (hint-hint).
3 – I love fishing
Fishing is a family story; I’ve been fishing since I was five years old. My father used to have a boat, so during the good period we would go fishing every weekend.
So there you have it! Three things about the people behind our ‘Three Things’ Blog Series.
