For the last three months, I’ve been working as a social media intern for the local Dublin boutique, Bow & Pearl. I’ve done everything from take product photos to organize stock takes to analyzing data from our social media platforms. I’ve also been working sales on the shop floor, so the whole experience has really given me an idea of what it takes to run a small independent business. I’ve always been drawn to the idea of working for myself and in some ways it’s never felt more possible, but you have to be so passionate and dedicated to your business – not sure I’ve found that fire quite yet. But I feel like it’s getting closer!
I wanted to share of few of my favorite photos from my time at Bow & Pearl to celebrate my last week. It’s amazing to think of how much I’ve grown in this experience – it feels like the time has both flown by and yet I’ve learned so much.
So a big thank you to the whole Bow & Pearl team, especially my boss Bronagh, for taking a little grad student in and making her feel at home. I’ll miss the shop so much! Thank you!
