Another batch is coming to a close and we’re so excited to welcome another one of fresh-faced creatives to our WIM family! The WIMternship is really such an exciting, fun internship where we let our WIMterns grow and experience new things–from eating delicious food to even traveling around the Philippines!
Throughout their internship, the Batch 4 WIMterns have had so many great experiences. Here are some of the reasons they love being WIMterns!
I love being a WiMtern because i get to meet different cool people like the Fab 5 of queer eye or Bryn Imagire of Pixar! I never thought I’d get to meet and talk to these people about things that I am most passionate about but through this internship I got to and I could not be happier!!
Pinoy showbiz is my guilty pleasure. I literally won’t last a day without reading an article about an artista. Through WhenInManila, I got to rub elbows with celebrities in events like the FAMAS and even got to interview them one on one like Regine Velasquez and Gloc-9 (I can send pics for proof haha).
I like being a WiMtern because it allows me to be exposed to more people in the industry that I want to go in. In event features, I get to learn about the advocacies of the planners and also listen to the experiences of videographers and photographers! Moreover, it allowed me to improve my skills and experience what it’s like to be serving media for a big group of people. At school, we were often sheltered and contricted to the four walls of a classroom but with every WiM meeting or interaction, we WiMterns are able to see what it’s like to work on projects for an actual company.
Why I love being a WIMtern: Discovering all the painful truths about what food bloggers actually go through, thanks to hundreds of plates of food and days where I suddenly have to eat a lot
I love being a wimterm because i found a second family and it really gave me huge opportunities to build my portfolio and meet new people! I love how we interact with each other during the meeting and during some of the features i get to meet celebrities ♥️
Love being a wimtern because it boosts your confidence seeing a lot of people like your work when you thought you weren’t that good (like my recent one on the father’s day comic)! 😀
I love being a WIMtern because I am able to do work while doing what I love. I get to meet celebrities, eats lots of food (FOR FREE!), join educational seminars, attend concerts, and of course, work with amazing people through this internship! <3
The best thing about this internship, for me, is that I was able to explore my talents in doing interviews with celebrities and having fun while doing it. Probably the best and my most fave feature was with Anne Curtis when I challenged her to a quick game of tongue twisters. She said everything perfectly and I stumbled on the last word (which was pretty embarassing cause I love tongue twisters, especially in Filipino). The rest of the interview went well and allowed me to see her as a person, not just a celebrity. Other interviews I did were with Yeng Constantino, Pepe Smith and Scottie Thompson. Through the WiMternship, I was able to solidify my beliefs in my abilities and it also allowed me to flex my Mr. Congeniality-worthy skills in making new friends (with the WiMterns and the people I talk to during the features).
I love being a WIMtern because I get the chance to meet so many fun, like-minded individuals from different schools and backgrounds! They become good friends and possible future collaborators. I also love how WIM allows me to have and use my own voice when writing about things I love!
