A testimonial from our amazing Intern Erica, who we will miss dearly <3
Interning for LAS has been one of the greatest experience of my life , I never thought it would be this interesting at first but as I finish my internship I wish I had more time with these three very focused, passionate and ambitious ladies.
Coming from a background of little PR knowledge these ladies were willing to open up and impart so much knowledge into my life. They have taught me so much about work ethic, professionalism, time management, growing a business, and how to brand and network my business. I now know that having an idea is one thing but nurturing the idea into reality requires hard work and dedication.
Not only did I learn a lot about the corporate world, I also learnt about giving back to the community by simply sharing skills and knowledge. LAS in partnership with Mint n’ Tea have an amazing initiative called HerAfrica. Through this they impart knowledge, skills and tools to girls and young women. Through HerAfrica, I got to understand the theory of giving back to the society in a whole new level. I had the opportunity of visiting a girls school in Bagamoyo, and played my part in sharing skills and advice to the next generation of female leaders. It felt so good to spend time empowering others!
As I mark the end of my time at LAS consultancy, all I have is a deep appreciation for these ladies. LAS has made me a different person at heart – I feel I can now boldly take on the corporate world! Salha, Asnath and Lilian are experts in the their field and I am honoured to have been able to learn from the very best!
