Young Creatives Gain Insight at Second Installment of Find & Follow Your Passion at Pratt Institute
Here’s what some attendees had to say: The keynote by Swissmiss was amazing, as was every session I attended. Outstanding event, I loved it all!
I really enjoyed how the speakers were very candid, nothing was sugar-coated.
My favorite part of the event was meeting inspiring minds who all want to accomplish great things. Refreshing!
NY Creative Interns is built around inspiring career optimism. Our organization has grown quickly since we started in 2010 and now serves as a support network providing inspiration and motivation for thousands of young creatives around the world. We’ve seen firsthand that a network like ours combined with hard works results in unlimited possibilities.
We’re not just for interns anymore, and because of that, (you heard it here first!) expect a name change in the not too distant future.
This installment of Find & Follow Your Passion in partnership with the Center for Career and Professional Development at Pratt Institute was our biggest initiative to date and a huge success! Thank you to everyone who was involved and made the event possible.
Here’s what happened:
Tina Roth Eisenberg opened the event by sharing the rules she lives by including “…trust your intuition, if an opportunity scares you, take it, and ignore haters.”
We have lots of photos, videos, and blog posts with content from the event coming, so stay tuned. In the mean time, check out what our storify recap below.
