I’d like to introduce you to Sarah Ann Design’s newest addition: my intern, Emma! Emma attends my own alma high school mater, Ursuline Academy. She recently joined Sarah Ann Design as a summer intern, giving me the opportunity to expand my business with the help of a capable team member. Her kind personality, heart for serving others, and hardworking attitude have already made a stellar impression.
This week, Emma has gotten a taste of the fun side of my job… gown shopping for an upcoming styled shoot! She will also be assisting me with envelope stuffing, address proofing, styled shoots and social media. I’m loving this already!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to Emma and let you get better acquainted:
Hi! My name is Emma Fain and I will be a senior this fall at my high school, Ursuline Academy of Dallas. I love being creative and am so ready for this amazing summer before my senior year. My longtime dream, going to Europe, is coming to life this late June. I am looking forward to one of the busiest and most memorable summers of a lifetime!
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, but am hoping to leave home for college. My whole family lives in Texas, and don’t get me wrong, I love this place, but I am hoping to go somewhere where I can accomplish my own wishes and dreams.
What interested you in this internship?
Being productive and having busy schedules is what I was born to do. I wanted to do something fun this summer that would also teach me about how to work for myself.
What are your plans for the future?
I eventually see myself getting my masters in psychology and working for myself. My dream is to give adolescents, ages 8-18, someone to talk to when family issues come into play. I want them to understand that their voice is being heard and that someone loves them. This is where wedding design and psychology connect for me. Everyone should feel loved because love is one of the most important keys in life. I plan to strive to do everything I can to help the youth feel loved especially when it is difficult to feel at home.
What’s on your current playlist?
It’s summer time—strictly upbeat songs that make me want to jump around my room and dance for hours with my friends!
What are some keywords that best describe you?
I am a unique, mysterious, bubbly, ice-cream loving, 17 year old girl.
What’s your best-ever vacation?
Last summer I went to Thailand and spent the whole week with elephants. I had never been out of the country before so my family sent me off with a company to the other side of the world. It was the closest I had ever been to true nature. We were sleeping in cabins in the middle of the jungle, and waking up at 6am to take baths in the lake with the elephants.
What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming year?
I am most looking forward to my senior year adventures that await and finding where they lead me. I am ready to take my own path in life and see where I go after Dallas.
Emma has already been a huge help, and I’m excited to have her on board for the summer! Stay tuned to see more of the projects we complete together (after her incredible European adventure, of course!)
