Testimonials from Our Interns
Aayushi Berawala, Fashion Journalist & Graphic Design Intern (July’20 – Present): Working with Shilpa Ahuja Digital Media was an amazing and mind-blowing experience. Being a fashion designer, I wanted to explore more in the fashion media industry. And this internship gave me the platform to discover and work upon my communication skills. I am very glad to work with ShilpaAhuja.com. Shilpa ma’am taught me so many things, from learning new skills to improving my flaws. Thank you, ma’am, for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
Sadaf Naz, Fashion Journalist Intern (Apr’20 – Dec’20): This internship is more close to my heart than any other internships that I have done so far. I won first place in creative writing in school but then I stopped writing and thought I lost my creativity in it. Working for Shilpa Ahuja Digital Media I realized that I still can write and it gives me the same joy it gave back then. Shilpa ma’am is amazing and working with her I learned a lot. She mentored me in such a way that now I have the confidence to write on a variety of topics. She also gave me the opportunity to help my fellow teammates, which in some way helped me become more confident and made me better at my work. Anyone who wants to become a part of fashion, journalism, or content writing, this internship is for them.
Thank you so much ma’am for giving me this opportunity and mentoring me all along.
Kishita Mutha, Fashion Journalist Intern (Apr’20 – Jun’20): This internship has been a great learning experience for me. Over these three months with ShilpaAhuja.com I have learnt, made mistakes, and with the help of Ma’am Shilpa Ahuja I have learnt from those mistakes. Content creation, structuring of content, SEO, Mood Boards, appreciating as well as criticizing fashion trends, a deeper understanding of fashion, time management, and editing are some of my learnings over the course of my internship.
It was great working with you, ma’am. And some of the lessons from you have only made me more ready for the corporate world. I can’t thank you enough for your motivation and guidance throughout the internship.
