My bosses at Aboitiz Equity Ventures have made me feel important (thought they try to refute it by asking for forgiveness that they haven’t focused on me so well).
Why wouldn’t I feel important when I am treated like an employee here in Aboitiz? Usually, interns are not treated the way they expect to be because of the fact that they are interns. They may not experience working things that are related to their forte or their strongest points. This may be because some employers may not have processed their interns prior to acceptance.
I have a long list of people to thank. I hope this already suffices.
First, my special thanks go to my mentors: Ms. Caroline Ballesteros, AVP-Corporate Communication; Ms. Theresa Sederiosa, External Relations Manager and Ms. Evelyn Paul, EIC of Eyes, for believing in my abilities to work in such an august company as Aboitiz Equity Ventures. They have made me feel special to the point that things that are only usually reserved for employees are entrusted to their trainees like me. They have believed in my potentials and talents.
Second, I thank my closest collaborator in the office, Yhol Colegado, who shared his experiences with me in my three-month sojourn with AEV. Things would never be the same without him at the helm of media relations.
Third, I also thank our FVP-Chief Reputation Officer Basti Lacson for sharing his time with me in my first days at AEV.
Lastly, to Vianney Yap for processing my application, facilitating my entry to AEV and her trust and confidence in me especially in handling social media during the Summit, of which I am a proud alumnus (I always have to emphasize this one because this is a crucial ingredient for my internship).
God is always gracious to me that He has never forsaken his children. To Him be the highest praise and thanksgiving for all that has been in my three months with Aboitiz Equity Ventures. Truly, I have already espoused that passion for better ways through them.
Daghang salamat, ug hangtod sa sunod nato nga panagkita.
