New Intern: An Introduction

 Hello everyone!

I'm Rise, and I'm thrilled to introduce myself as a new intern at Tenatch!

I'm currently enrolled in a co-op program at ILAC college in Toronto, learning sales and marketing. I moved to Canada over a year ago from Saitama, Japan. I came here after graduating from Otsuma University based in Tokyo, where I majored English literature. My main academic interests lie in the intersection between mass media and its influence on viewers and consumers. I capped off my university career with a thesis presentation based on the timeless classic, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald wherein I explored the manifold themes of social class, structural sexual inequality, and the erosion of what is known as "The American Dream". Today, I am still passionate about classic literature - I am currently reading Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. I'd love to know what you're reading!

While enrolled at Otsuma, I also worked part-time as a marketing assistant at an IT company. This experience ignited my passion for marketing and led me to pursue further studies in sales and marketing! While it may seem unrelated, I was struck by how my passions in classic literature helped me better understand and communicate with customers. Currently I'm located in Guelph, Ontario. I'm enjoying the beautiful architecture and vibrant community. 

In my free time, I like to watch movies, explore nature, and crochet. I started crochet in January this year and have been loving it ever since. I even created an Instagram account to post my work and hope to turn this into a small business someday! This experience gave me a practical understanding of the challenges small business owners face in the first phrase, which aligns perfectly with Tenatch's mission.

I'm excited and grateful for this opportunity. I look forward to working and learning more about marketing and many more!

Thank you so much for reading my introduction! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
