Taking things for granted is something that I believe most people do. I’m not going to lie, before my internship here I was guilty of this. What is even worse is that when I finish my internship, I will still take things for granted.
“Someone is praying for the things you take for granted.”
This quote has really opened my eyes. Water is an obvious thing that I take for granted. However, there are people on the other side of the world that would do anything for an endless supply of clean and safe drinking water. It was only this week that I had a moan because there wasn’t anything I felt like eating in my fridge. It’s embarrassing when you think of it!
It’s easy for me to say, “I’m never going to do this again”, but after working at One, I honestly will stop and take a second to think about how lucky I am.
On a different note, my time at One has been amazing. Not only has it confirmed that marketing is a career path I’d love to follow, it has also made me realise that working for a business like One is something I want because the work you put in, really pays off and makes a difference for others.
