INTERN TESTIMONIES


I never thought that I could have a chance to work in a media organization before joining the Collide program provided by OWN Academy. Both the Collide (Real-world learning week) program and my two-week internship were helpful to me, since I learned how to create a successful marketing campaign through Collide, and learned valuable skills and lessons during my internship at SCMP Young Post.

The Collide (Real-world learning week) program helped me a lot as I was able to talk to a lot of marketing industry professionals directly and learn things from them which I later on implemented in my internship.

It was a valuable experience in showing me how the theoretical knowledge I was learning in college could be used in a practical way in the workforce, to potentially make a real difference. I would have never have had this opportunity without the help of OWN Academy, and would highly recommend it to any student looking for internships and experiences to best guide them with their future careers.
