On my first day of work, I was impressed by the enthusiasm of colleagues towards brands and products they are working on. Joining the Asia Buying - Seasonal, Holidays and Events team as a Summer Intern allowed me to gain deep insights into the role of a buyer of the sourcing industry. It was more than administrative work as I was empowered to oversee projects that bring positive momentum to the workplace and community.
