NYC Internship + Covid?
I'm Puck, the CX intern at Hydrant. On March 2nd, I moved from the Netherlands to New York City to start my internship and live my best life for the next 5 months. Fast forward eight days where our co-founders sent us all home to prepare for a more formal shutdown of the city, and start to work remotely from home due to the coronavirus outbreak in NYC!
After a week of living in a tiny apartment near Penn Station with a bunch of international students, I decided to move to New Jersey to live with my sister, because I was hopeful it would blow over and I could get back to living that best life as soon as possible.
As 2020 continued, covid wasn't going away, so I made the decision to move back to the Netherlands and live with my family, with hoards of Hydrant in tow. *Life is totally going as planned.* Then my parents drank all my Hydrant!
In all seriousness, my internship is coming to an end, I've moved into a beautiful apartment in Amsterdam, and I'm reflecting on the last few months of life.?I've persevered through the pandemic, I helped to build?pinterest boards?for our brand, launched a Help Center on our website, and I've personally interacted with thousands of our customers! It didn't look like it was supposed to, but I've learned a lot and will miss the Hydrant team! Thanks to all of you for your kind words and your life lessons.
