Mochatern Bianca: fashionABLE

Hey everyone!

It’s Bianca, the fashionABLE intern for the Fall semester. I’m so excited to share my intern experiences with you over the course of the semester. I’ve been interning with fashionABLE for a few short weeks, and I’m looking forward to serving on the fashionABLE team for the next few months.

This week has been particularly exciting here at the Mocha Club / fashionABLE office. I’ve been working directly with Jordan and Marisa to help prepare scarves for orders, and I was delighted to have the privilege to help them get ready for their trip to New York for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this past weekend. I helped get all of the scarves packed and ready to bring to NYC, and I also helped put together a lot of the marketing materials for potential retailers. In addition to getting the scarves and the marketing materials ready for NYC, I prepared invites for the fashionABLE party that took place at Diana Warner’s Store!

Jordan and Marisa got back on Tuesday, and I was excited to hear about their trip when I came into the office on Wednesday. They shared pictures of their trip with me, and I was glad to hear that the party with Diana Warner was a great success! It’s awesome to know that I helped play a role in fashionABLE’s participation in Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out.

On Wednesday, Vanessa, Lauren, and I had the opportunity of sitting in on a meeting with African Leadership. It was especially exciting because Barrett had just gotten back from Ethiopia, and he shared with us his journey of adopting his new daughter, Lena! It was incredible to hear about Barrett and his family’s journey that ended in bringing a beautiful new baby girl home to Nashville!

In addition, it was incredible to hear about all of the other efforts African Leadership is involved in. From pastor training to medical supply delivery to building dorms for young men and women, African Leadership is making a great contribution to people in need, and it was fascinating to hear about these efforts from the people who are spearheading them.

Overall, it’s been a fun week, and I’ve truly got to know a lot more about the Mocha Club, fashionABLE, and African Leadership. I’m excited to work with Barrett and help implement all of the wonderful ideas he has for fashionABLE!

Until next time,
