Since the beginning of this week, our team has been strengthened by Kajol, Kaylee and Dominik. They will do an internship with us for the next 10 weeks.
TELL MORE ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR EDUCATION?
Kajol: Hi! My name is Kajol. I am 20 years old and I come from Zoetermeer. I am currently in my 3rd year of the Interior Adviser course at the Hout and Furnishing College in Rotterdam. In addition to my busy life as a student, I work as a sales agent at KPN and as a salesman at Interieurwinkel Edwin Pelser. When I finally manage to escape all the hustle and bustle you can often find me in the books or I am again a tourist in another country. In addition, I also share a passion for dancing which I have done for a total of 6 years.
Kaylee: I’m Kaylee, 18 years old and I live in Bleiswijk. I am currently in the third year of the Interior Adviser course at the HMC in Rotterdam. The training lasts four years, so I will take the exam next year. In addition to this study, I work in the hospitality industry. I also like to play tennis and visit different cities.
Dominik: Hi! My name is Dominik. I am 21 years old and I am from The Hague. I study at MBO Utrecht where I follow the architecture, design and design course with the ultimate goal of obtaining the title of middle-level construction officer. At the moment I am in the second year. In addition to my studies, I work in a nice wine restaurant Lemongrass on the harbor in Scheveningen where I always have fun. In my spare time I am busy running and drawing and I also enjoy tinkering with computers.
WHY STUDIO FLEX?
Kajol: It is of course very nice that we get the opportunity to do internships from school. I used to do an internship twice and this has been in a home store every time. I have now consciously chosen to do an internship at a studio so that I can gain more experience within the design process. What appeals to me primarily at Studio Flex is that they go back to basics: “People in the Netherlands are in a building for about 80% of the time” and “Interior design may include the most personal side of architecture.” That’s how they distinguish themselves from the rest and made it for me that I chose Studio Flex.
Kaylee: After two successful internships, I started looking for an internship that I think I can learn a lot and that suits me well. I had this at Studio Flex after seeing the website. I really enjoy working with digital programs. In addition to interior, I also find architecture very interesting. That is why I chose Studio Flex.
Dominik: Because in my second year I had the opportunity to do an internship of 10 weeks, I searched the stagemarkt.nl for a nice training company based in The Hague and then I found Studio Flex. On their website I have seen that they are involved in various fun projects and that appealed to me because these projects also connect well with my education.
WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
Kajol: I actually expect that I will have a great internship during which I learn a lot. Of course I also hope to gain a lot of knowledge that I can subsequently apply later.
Kaylee: I think I have a fun and educational internship at Studio Flex. I expect to learn many different things and to participate in various projects.
Dominik: I expect to learn a lot during my internship period and I am already doing it even now to be present at studio flex and to hear project discussions. I also thought it would be nice to delve more into the construction calculations.
WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON AT STUDIO FLEX?
Kajol: I would love to see as many projects as possible. I have only seen fictional assignments at school for 2.5 years now. I therefore hope to get a bit of an impression of real-world projects.
Kaylee: I would like to be able to work on different projects and perhaps also to look at a construction project. It also seems interesting to me to see the process of how the final design ultimately comes about.
Dominik: As mentioned above, I would like to mean something in the construction calculations, because I don’t have much knowledge in that and it seems fun to learn something in that area. I also think it would be nice to see how the technical drawings are arranged.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER YOUR INTERNSHIP?
Kajol: When I have completed my internship, I first want to get my diploma. After that I would like to continue to higher professional education. I am not sure yet whether I want to continue with the creative sector. In recent years I have found that I have a passion for the creative sector. So who knows … ?
Kaylee: When I have completed this internship, I still have three internships to go and three school periods. I’m probably going to do my next internship abroad. After this course I would like to continue my studies at HBO, which course I do not yet know exactly. If after this internship I still find architecture interesting, I may be going to do an education in architecture.
Dominik: After I’m done with this internship, I’m going to do my best at school again and I definitely want to continue my studies when I’m done with my education.
