We are delighted to welcome our new intern Olive Abernethy who starts her first day with us today!
She has previously interned at a multinational insurance company based in Hong Kong and is currently in her final year completing a Bachelor of Communications at Victoria University of Wellington.
We’re excited to be working with Olive who no doubt will bring new perspectives and fresh ideas to the team.
Describe yourself in three words
I would say creative, curious, and attentive.
What do you like about communications?
I love how communications is analysing, and then coming up with an effective solution. It’s relevant, engaging, and there is always something it can teach you about the world we live in.
What are some of your hobbies?
I enjoy baking, going on walks, and researching new places to travel and eat.
If you could invite anyone (from the present or the past) to dinner, who would it be and why?
Probably, David Attenborough. I grew up watching his documentaries, so that would be incredible.
What is your favourite song to sing?
Anything, Mama Mia.
What is your favourite type of sandwich?
I’m a big sandwich fan. At the moment, I am loving chicken and avo, with a bit of pesto. Special mention to a ham and cheese toastie, although, I don’t think that counts!
What is one thing we would never guess about you?
I love fashion and spend a lot of my free time consuming fashion content and curating my dream wardrobe.
If you pull out your phone now, what are your top five most used emojis?
What are you most looking forward to about your time with us?
I am most looking forward to applying what I have learnt whilst completing my degree, and to work alongside Julien and PJ, with their extensive understanding of the industry.
