bloom Welcomes New Interns!

We had the pleasure of hiring four students from the University of Delaware as bloom interns this semester! Melissa, Jenna, and Kristina will be a part of bloom's social media team. As social media interns, their roles are to help manage and create content for all of the blooms online platforms and they will get the opportunity to interact with our #bloomgirls via social media conversations! Collete will work along side our design team and will assist with product pictures, creating and editing videos, and help design new cover patterns and designs. We interviewed each girl to get to know them a little better! All of these young women bring their own unique and special talents to bloom and we are so lucky to have them!

What does bloom mean to you?

To me, bloom means an inspiring place for everyone! I love being able to intern for a company that is extremely positive and welcoming and truly wants to empower every individual. The energy of bloom is optimistic and radiant, and encourages you to be the best version of yourself! bloom provides a way to make planning out even the most hectic weeks an enjoyable activity, and it always makes me look forward to writing out my weekly tasks/goals.

What are some of your favorite social media sites?

Instagram is one of my favorites, since I enjoy being able to see what fun things my friends and family are up to every week! It’s also fun being able to keep up with different celebrities and influencers since they’re usually traveling the world and putting up pictures in beautiful locations. There is such amazing content on Instagram and you get to see an inside look of what someone’s life is like from their own unique perspective. I am also a huge fan of Pinterest! I think Pinterest provides so many great ideas whenever you need inspiration! I could scroll through Pinterest for hours just getting new inspiration for outfits, home decor, hair, makeup, and recipes! 

What kinds of things do you do in your free time?

I absolutely love health and fitness so I spend a lot of my time working out at the gym or trying out new healthy recipes/natural remedies! All of my friends know me as the person that will always have some random supplement like papaya enzymes or peppermint oil in my bag to help whatever’s making them feel sick! I think focusing on your health and wellness every day is an amazing way to de-stress and really increase your energy and confidence. I also love music so I love spending my down time creating new playlists on Spotify and discovering new music to listen to!

What is your favorite bloom product and why?

I can’t imagine being a college student without my Blue Strokes Daily Planner! I absolutely love it! It makes planning out my extremely busy weeks something that is fun to do and is a cute little reminder to keep focused on my goals!

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite is “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind” from Dr. Suess. It’s always inspired me to be happy and true to myself because at the end of the day, the important people in your life love you for you, not anything you pretend to be! I remember seeing it on a poster one time when I was little and it has always stuck with me ever since.

Jenna 

Jenna is a Junior at the University of Delaware and a double major in Communications and Spanish. Jenna is a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and a Student Alumni Ambassador. Jenna is a native of Newark, Delaware. 

What does bloom mean to you?

bloom to me is all about accepting everyone for who and what they are. There is no such thing as not good enough. bloom makes me want to smile and spread the love! It reminds me that there is good in the world and there are people who care. It’s also about enjoying the little things in life, like the cute cover of your planner. 

What are some of your favorite social media sites?

My favorite social media sites are Instagram and Facebook. Instagram is great because it’s like a picture book of people’s lives. You can see their experiences and who they are. Facebook makes me laugh. It cheers me up when I see funny posts I can relate to. There are also times when Facebook opens my eyes to things I didn’t think or know about. It makes me feel connected to the people in my life. 

What kinds of things do you do in your free time?

On my free time I am either drawing, cooking, working out or napping. I have been drawing since I was two years old. It relieves any stress I have and helps me relax. Cooking is therapeutic for me. I love creating new things out of raw ingredients and being creative with what I make. I also like seeing how good food makes people happy. Fitness is a huge part of my life, so working out is always a good time. It makes me feel refreshed and energized. Napping is a daily activity for me. I get really sad if I can’t nap at all during the day. 

What is your favorite bloom product and why?

My favorite bloom product is the Be Sweet Pineapple Daily Planner. I love pineapples and think they are the cutest things! I’d live in one if I could…don’t want to steal SpongeBob’s thunder though.

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote is, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” Gandhi

Kristina

Kristina is a Senior Media Communications Major at the University of Delaware. Kristina is a member of Gamma Sigma Sigma and serves as a Social Media Ambassador for UD. Kristina is from New City, New York. 

What does bloom mean to you?

To me, bloom is empowering and supportive; it gives you the motivation and the inspiration to chase your dreams and reminds you every day that you're doing a great job! It helps you make sense out of the chaos that life can sometimes be and it keeps you grounded.

What are some of your favorite social media sites?

I am a very visual person so I love Instagram! I share photos from my various adventures and from hanging out with my friends and it also lets me keep tabs on my friends and family. I like to follow food accounts on Instagram too (although sometimes that just makes me really hungry). I also like to go on Facebook to watch funny videos or see funny pictures and memes.

What kinds of things do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I love to exercise, so I'm at the gym a lot. I also am passionate about photography and video so I like to get out and shoot in nature when it's nice out, and I also like to just stay in and watch movies or play my guitar (I have been playing for about 9 years now).

What is your favorite bloom product and why?

My favorite bloom product is the Daily Planning System Pad because it gives structure to my everyday schedule. I like the layout and the different areas for work, important times, things to buy, and meals. I am very forgetful and need everything written out in front of me to remember it so I LOVE the daily planning system pad because it breaks everything down in sections and helps me keep track of all I have to do!

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote would have to be "Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" from Mary Oliver. To me, this means that life is short, we are unique, and we need to embrace every day and make the most out of it. We all have something special to offer the world and we shouldn't hold back!

Colette

Colette is a Junior Visual Communications Major at the University of Delaware. Colette is a native of New Jersey and is involved with Greek Life and UDance at UD!

What does bloom mean to you?
To me, bloom means new opportunity, new experiences. I'm currently a junior at the University of Delaware, and just got into the Visual Communications major. bloom is the first chance I've had to truly take what I've learned in school, in the classroom, and apply it to something in the real-world, something that I could potentially be doing with my future. bloom, for me, is a new adventure, a chance to try new things, and to be creative in a place that almost has no bounds. 
What will you be doing at bloom as an intern?
I am currently the newest Graphic Design Intern and I'm super excited! My job includes learning from Brie and Dena, photographing products, and creating videos to be used for bloom's social media channels! Make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube
What kinds of things do you do in your free time?
In my free time, aside from everything Greek Life and UDance, I love being outside. I live by the beach, and go almost everyday in the summer. I also love hiking, cliff-jumping, and finding new, secret places out there in the world. I always want to be out there doing something, exploring, adventuring, finding new places and meeting new people. 
What is your favorite bloom product and why?
My favorite bloom product would have to be the Ultimate Planner. It has everything someone could possibly need for their entire year, in one planner! It truly is the "ultimate" planner, and I use it for everything and anything! 
What is your favorite quote?
"In the end, always laugh. And do not lose this strange habit of having faith in life.” No matter what craziness, or chaos life throws at you, go through it laughing, go through it hopeful. This just reminds me to always take a step back, to keep a positive perspective, and to laugh. 

These girls are already off to a great start! We are so thankful for their creativity, ideas, hard work, inspiration, open minds, and willingness to bloom!! We can't wait to see all they accomplish this year!

xoxo,

Lauren
