After evaluating several candidates for our Marketing Internship, we selected Brianna Douglas. Brianna will be apart of the Swim Szn team for the next two months. Brianna will be helping run our Facebook, Twitter, and email newsletters. She also brought some amazing ideas to help expand our business and overall improve our marketing program.
I recently had the chance to interview Brianna. Here are some things I learned about her:
How old are you? I am 20 years old.
What school do you go to? What are you studying? I go to the University of South Florida. I am pursuing a degree in marketing while obtaining a minor in sociology and business.
What are some of your passions or hobbies? One of my biggest passions is to thrive in the fashion industry and work my way into having my own clothing line in high end fashion. One of my biggest hobbies is working out every day and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When I gave up cheerleading after I graduated high school, I found myself lost and bored with nothing active to do anymore so I took myself to the gym and quickly made it a new hobby. When I am not at the gym, you could finding me basking in the sun on one of our beautiful local beaches, preferably Anna Maria Island. I love that Anna Maria is very local and rather down to earth and not so uptight like other island communities around us.
What do you like about Swim Szn? What I love most about Swim Szn is that it provides a clear representation of "it always Swim Szn", being that we do live in this beautiful sunshine state where we have the opportunity to have swim season all year around! Not only do I love the wonderful representation but the pure quality of the baiting suit and the way that it can fit everyone perfect is astonishing. As a young woman, I have had so many experiences lashing out in the dressing room because I found the most perfect bikini but my only problem was that the top fit just right while the bottoms were cutting my circulation off because my bottom half runs a little bigger. These bathing suits can make anyone feel comfortable in their own skin and we will only continue to make that our motto. Swim Szn is only in the beginning steps of the big journey that it has ahead and I see nothing but positive outcomes for this company.
What is your dream job? If I could pick one dream job it would have to follow in the footsteps of my future plans and say that I would love to be a designer and create my own line. I would love to have not only clothes, but shoes, lingerie, accessories and so much more. I dream to have the opportunity to provide for women, men and children so that my line contains pure diversity so that all can thrive through my line and dress in what makes them feel their best.
Favorite city? My favorite city is hard to pinpoint but I can tell you that my TWO favorite cities are most definitely LosAngeles, California and New York City, New York. These two cities have my heart and I completely fell in love the second I laid my eyes on each of them. California fills one half of my heart with the beautiful beaches and sunsets while also being able to be adventurous and find great shopping on Rodeo Dr. (Supporting my horrible shopping addiction). On the other hand, NYC grasped the other half of my heart with its sky scrapping buildings, gorgeous parks/ monuments and of course, the plethora of shopping, unique styles and designers you have access to while being there. If I could have it my way I would have two houses, one house in California over looking the ocean with another one being an apartment in Tribeca with the water on one side and the city on the other; living my life in pure bliss and happiness forever!
Favorite type of music? My favorite type of music is most definitely pop and hip-hop. I genuinely really love old school hip-hop because I feel that in that time, real, unique music was made and some of the most respected and iconic artists lived in that time. (90's hip-hop being my top choice, preferably Biggie Smalls and TuPac).
