First Day Formalities, First Impression

The selection process via Internshala was of two rounds. I cried after the second round of online interview because I didn’t think I would get selected, the interview was prima facie insightful and intimidating at the same time, just how it’s supposed to be. I was stoked to be selected under the Editorials Department. First Victory.

Lesson Learnt – Always stay confident. Be honest, say what you aren’t aware about, learn about it later and grow! This is a journey.

Main Tasks 

It consisted of researching about a topic and writing an article on it.I learnt how to add citations according to the Bluebook format, which seemed like a big mountain in the first semester was now merely a piece of cake! My first article got published in daily hunt. 

The joy of that moment was inexplicable. I shared it with all my friends. Here’s the link to my second victory: http://dhunt.in/iiKAf

Lesson Learnt – Ask. Discuss. Connect. Always stay humble and on your toes. 

As days passed, I started noticing the articles and news which I would usually pass upon. I became more observant, curious and eloquent. The most rewarding part of this internship is downrightly getting to choose the topic thay fuels you the most, and what better delight than getting to write about it. 

Lesson Learnt – The more passionate you are, the better you explore and the better you articulate. 

Work Environment, Good Things And Bad Things

The entire team is a stellar bunch of students always ready to help, support and guide you on the right track. I’ll forever be grateful for receiving a time extension due to my mother’s covid hospitalization. I think the only bad thing(initially) is they’d make you work harder and polish stones into diamonds.

Lesson Learnt – Abstain procrastination. If there’s a genuine reason, push yourself beyond your limits. That’s how you’ll grow.

Here’s to experiencing more kicks in the moments of small victories!
