During my time at Eat the Frog, I had many responsibilities. They include cleaning, maintenance on the equipment, marketing and desk work, coaching and planning circuits for fitness classes, and also coming up with events for the company.


My greatest accomplishment during my internship would be figuring out what I really want to do in this line of work but also getting the experience I need during it.

Learning experience

The greatest lesson I have learned is that you need to be flexible with your hours and also prioritize your time if you are doing other activities.

What advice would you give?

My advice would be to have an open mind when going into a business because you can learn a lot from a hands-on experience instead of sitting in a classroom.
