How would you describe your morning routine?
My morning routine starts with walking in the door, where I’m greeted with a smile from my favorite doorman. I get on the express elevator up to the 7th floor. On Mondays, it never fails, I have to go to the garage and get my laptop because I forgot to lock my computer up Friday before leaving. After that, I look at my schedule for the day and then head down to get some breakfast. I eat breakfast at my desk and get started on my work.
What’s your staple work outfit?
My staple work outfit consist of a black slacks a white button up and a jean jacket (because it is freezing on the 7th floor.)

What makes this internship special is the access to all of resources we have. Ogilvy NYC is a huge agency and there are so many opportunities for interns to explore all facets of the advertising industry.
