We have had the pleasure of working with Angela Pasker, a Commercial Management student from Maastricht in the Netherlands, who has been doing her internship with us, helping in our Sales & Marketing Department.
We’d like to share a little bit about her, her experiences and her contributions here at Streetwires.
First up, her interesting field of study, Commercial Management, is quite a heavyweight course. It includes all aspects of Marketing, Sales, Economics, Finance and Management. Of that hefty list, Angela has decided to major in Marketing and Economics, and aspires to work in the Marketing / Sales department in a hotel. We’d agree she’d be good at this, with her warm nature and efficient manner.
In her spare time, Angela likes to play tennis , shop and hang out with her friends.
We asked her a little bit about her impressions of Streetwires, and South Africa – and she lists her best moment at Streetwires being at our end of year party where all the staff started dancing and joined up as a train and danced through the office. I think we all enjoyed that! When it comes to work-time at Streetwires, Angela’s favourite project, within her social media plan has been the setting up and populating of our brand new Instagram account (Watch this space!).
Her favourite part of her time in South Africa is without a doubt her trip up the Garden Route with her friend who flew down from Holland to visit. Totally beautiful and unforgettable!
Angela has taken some important life lessons from her experiences here, which we love:-
Streetwires and the staff have taught her to always make the best out of her life.
South African people are surprisingly kind and helpful. She says Holland can learn a lot from that. Also, our jokes are much better here too, apparently!
Angela tried some local cuisine here, and found her favourites to be Ostrich meat which she found delicious, and Samoosas (Yay for our regular office visitor, the Samoosa man!)
Then, the vital final piece of information, we wanted to know – Angela’s favourite Streetwires product…. She has this to say: ‘The hippos are my favourite. They are full of colour and look beautiful’
‘I want to thank everybody from the Streetwires team that made my internship wonderful.’
Angela has really integrated well with our team and company culture, and provided some very valuable groundwork for our next interns to follow. We wish you well when you leave us (and wish you could stay!)
