For those who don't know me yet: My name is Anja. I am a Swede doing my Internship at The North-West Passage and I am in charge of the Social Media Marketing for a couple of months ahead!
So how has the first month of my Internship and stay here in U.S. been?
I am really happy with the tasks I am doing as an intern for The North-West Passage. I feel that I am 'learning by doing' which means I get to try out different strategies, and add the touch I think will work on differents posts on the blog, Facebook and Instagram, that is very exciting! I can evaluate it all and instantly find out what is working and what is not! Which to me is the beauty of Social Media.
Besides my Internship being awesome, so is my life here in San Diego!
I live in a house close to the Beach and the Pacific Ocean with two roommates. My days and weekends are filled with activities such as hiking, traveling or relaxing on the beautiful beaches that are so close by!
There are of course a lot of bars and nightclubs to visit if the desire to go out dancing comes and the choices of where to go out are limitless.
I would say that time does seem to fly, but that is how it is when you're having the time of your life, I suppose!
Here are a few pictures from the latest 30 days here in the states.
