The University of Georgia has coordinated with the American Institute for Foreign Study, Inc., (AIFS) for the past 20 years to provide students with an exciting summer in London, England. Not only do students take a British culture class, but they also have the opportunity to work as interns. Last summer I was able to take part in this amazing program and learn about the PR and fashion industry in one of the world’s fashion capitals.

I worked at a PR agency as their fashion intern. Through this experience I I researched and gained professional relationships with up-and-coming beauty and fashion brands as well as assisted with the planning and execution of a number of events. This was an incredible experience that pushed me out of my comfort zone and gave me a much deeper understanding of the industry as I was experiencing it in a completely different culture.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the summer!
