I was incredibly excited, still, months passed by and now its time for me to schedule and plan out what I will do starting November 11.
What skills do I want to master long-term?
My search started by looking at inspiring and creative work areas; my initial idea was contacting the MATE museum and practicing marketing through offering the service of redesigning and adding value to their web page as I noticed that their online precessence is not strong enough. With this I would also expand my knowledge of professional photography and learn from legendary Mario Testino. With a strong passion for photography, what else could I ask for?
Succesful people and businesses NETWORK. We all have powerful contacts andit is all about creating relationships, messaging- making the connections. Now, with the internet even the introverts have this possibility in hand.

Mimanzana, an online marketing agency started by young entrepreneurs ran into the post and immediately inboxed him. One of the head's, Nicolas Mulder, happened to be an ex-FDR student and was open for one of us to go and practice in his office for a month. Given that I'm strongly interested in discovering the what the marketing career would really imply and am already working on creative writing with journalism this was the perfect opportunity for GROWTH.
I took it, started exchanging e-mails with Nicolas, asked a few questions to learn about the working environment and evaluate if the daily tasks would challenge me as a learner. The first thing he did when I volunteered was looking at my website, I noticed how it is the window into who I am and it is important to sell my real identity through it: Market myself authentically and pay more attention to what it sais of me as a person.
