This summer the Soko team is very excited to bring on four new college interns to the downtown office in NYC - and we want you to meet them! This week, we’re introducing you to Elizabeth. Check out her interview below!
My name is Elizabeth Harvey and I’m from Manhattan, NYC. I am a rising sophomore at Georgetown University, where I’m planning on double majoring in English and Spanish – but we’ll see how everything turns out! Here at Soko this summer I’m working as a social media and marketing intern.
What drew you to Soko?
I was immediately drawn to Soko because of the fact that it is a social enterprise: though it is very much a competitive business, it always holds global awareness at its forefront. I hope that I will be lucky enough to always work for organizations that I believe to be as significant as Soko. I also love the fact that Soko is a startup, because that means I get to actually play a role in big, exciting things: growth, change, and success!
Is there anything in particular that you hope to accomplish during this internship?
Since I’m working on social media and marketing, my goal is to significantly increase awareness of what Soko is and what we are doing. I get frustrated because I know that there are so many people out there who would fall in love with the jewelry, the artisans, and our cause – they just don’t know it yet! If I can help the company reach new heights because of increased interest, and therefore increased sales, I will be very excited.
When I’m not working I love to…
I love to play sports and workout; my favorite activities are running, soccer, and bikram yoga. I also love to find cool new restaurants with my friends and family, go to the movies, and read.
What is your personal style? Do you have a style icon?
I’d say my style icon is Blake Lively, but I also love Jennifer Lawrence!
What’s your favorite piece from the collection?
Favorite travel destination?
I went to Santorini, Greece last summer for the first time and fell in love. The food is unreal, the beaches and hill towns are gorgeous, and the sunsets are some of the most beautiful in the world. I’m also fascinated by all of the country’s history. I can’t wait to visit more of the islands!
What team are you rooting for in the World Cup?
Spain! I studied abroad in Madrid for three months when I was fifteen, and since then they’ve had my loyalty.
What’s your Soko Six this week (six things you’re obsessed with right now)?
NARS eye shadow, the Game of Thrones season finale, maxi dresses, our Brass and Perspex Blue Stacked Rings, David Villa (my favorite Spanish player), & Essen Slow Fast Food Deli (NYC)
