If you can make it there...
In reality, New York is not such a big deal on our school. On the first day of the quarter people from all over the world come straight from the airport, still carrying their suitcases. As if they've taken a train. This quarter more students from Miami Ad School than ever are going to New York. Most of them are doing a school programme there, some of them got an internship.
What ís a big deal is the agency I'm going to do my internship. Saatchi New York has become the agency of the year in Cannes. Already the best teams from Hamburg went there before me, so it's going to be hard to be outstanding. And thanks to the long visa procedure, I'm already four days later.
Of course that doesn't demotivate me. I asked my teampartner Julien to send me the first briefing so I can start working already. Working at Saatchi is a big opportunity and I'm going to grab it with both hands. I received my visa in time and on Thursday my plane is leaving. I feel really excited, like I'm going abroad for the first time all over again. It was great to be back in Alkmaar, but now it's time to rock in the Big Apple.
