My first week as an Account Service intern at Brokaw is coming to a close and I can confidently say that I have learned more in four days than I have in 21 years. Waking up early for a full-time summer internship is not always easy, but it has been at Brokaw. I am actually really excited to come to work in the morning and that’s really saying something because I am NOT a morning person whatsoever.3724d1a3a1f4cbdbd2ca91e5da217d08

Each day is a new surprise, whether it’s sitting in on face-to-face client meetings or discovering new lunch spots around Cleveland like Constantino’s Market or Cleveland Chop. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly, which makes the days go by much faster than they normally would. I look forward to getting to know everyone in the office better, especially during the intern-views. I have been carrying around my notebook with me everywhere I go to stay organized on the many different projects that I will be helping out on this summer. Of course, it has the clichéd quote on the front of “Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.” However, I think there is no better quote to define this summer as an intern at the agency I wanted to intern at since my freshman year at Ohio University. After only four days, I have realized that I love the fast-paced yet welcoming culture of the advertising world, especially at Brokaw. I mean, sometimes I have to remind myself that I am actually working and not just having fun! I cannot wait to see how much I grow this summer as a brotern!
