Hello all!

My name is Yanin Nanakorn and I’m a 20-year-old girl from the States, never would have guessed from the name, would you? Prior to ever leaving the US, I knew that I wanted to do an internship while studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. Luckily for me, through Macquarie University’s internship program, and Diane’s faith in my abilities, I was allowed this opportunity with Marketing Mechanics! For someone who’s never interned with a full service agency before, this experience has been everything I wanted it to be and more. The first day on the job I was assigned to help design a website for a client. It was mind blowing to me that a few days later it was a fully functioning website, and part of that was my doing!
At Marketing Mechanics, I was exposed to a wide variety of projects, from out of home to commercials and radio to television. I never would have learned so much about all of the different areas of an agency if it wasn’t for this internship and I am so glad I was able to do it. It added a huge element to my time in Sydney overall and I couldn’t have asked for more.

I have to thank Andrew and Ayeisha for helping to build my marketing skills, Nico and Kristen for being great fellow interns, Daniel for thinking it’s weird to eat veal, and mostly Diane for allowing me to make this six months one of the best times of my life. So, on my last day I must say I’m a bit sad that it has come to an end, but it was a great run here. As they say, it’s not the amount of time you’re given, but how you use it that counts, and thanks to Marketing Mechanics I’ve optimized my experience in a massive way!

I’ll miss everyone heaps!
