Hi, my name is Blessing. I’ve just started at Yellow Door, which is my second experience working in an agency. I love the fact that you get to deal with different types of brands and people, and get to experience a completely different atmosphere to the everyday working life. My life can’t be explained in a paragraph but all you need to know about me is that there are three words that describe me best: passion, love and cars!
What is your position in the YDC team?
I am a fresh intern.
How would you describe your role?
At the moment my role is to learn as many skills and experiences as possible and show the team that I am eager to learn new tricks anytime.
When did you start working at YDC?
On 1 October 2018.
What part of your job do you enjoy most?
There is a number of things that I enjoy about the job I do, but out of everything, I enjoy coming to work and always learning something new and engaging with people from different backgrounds the most.
What part of your role do you find the most challenging?
The most challenging part is the pressure. As an intern I feel like when given a task, I need to show my colleagues quality workmanship at a productive rate.
What do you enjoy most about being part of the Yellow Door team?
They are all close knit, help is literally always a desk away and everyone gets to know each other on a personal level.
What do you do when you’re stuck for inspiration?
I either go hiking with my girlfriend or meet up with a few friends, pick a road and just follow through and see where the road takes us.
What is your pre-work routine?
A phone call with my girlfriend. This is really important to me because she is the person that inspires me to wake up every morning and give my all at work.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?
Superman – because he can fly. I am always moving around and if I could move around without being worried about traffic and petrol prices, it would definitely be flying.
What’s your favourite way to spend a weekend?
Spending time with my girlfriend or going out to spend the day at a car show or the race track.
What music do you like to listen to while working?
My ears are versatile. I listen to anything from deep house to soft rock.
Introvert or extrovert?
Introvert with a little bit of extrovert. I am talkative when I need to be but at times I can be very quiet.
Cats or dogs?
I would say both but at the moment but I am more in love with cats because I have one.
Shoes or barefoot?
Barefoot. I like walking barefoot. There is just something fascinating about being barefoot and just having your feet out in the open or with some flip-flops on.
What’s your favourite spot on Kloof Street?
Yours Truly because as a student or a young person, that is the spot to be at.
