Find & Follow Your Passion: NY Creative Interns’ First Conference

  1. nyci, conference
  2. This past Saturday was NY Creative Interns’ first conference Find & Follow Your Passion. The whole day was full of speakers and panels aimed at giving attendees (mostly students and recent grads) the tools they needed to make their dream come true. Right from the keynote by Josh Siegal, writer and senior producer of 30 rock, you knew #FindPassion was one of those special conferences where everyone would walked away inspired. Every speaker I talked to spoke about the positive experience. The NYCi team has been planning this conference since last summer and so much time, dedication, and lost sleep has been spent on it. Emily Miethner and Marny Smith did a killer job and are an inspiration to everyone.

  4. I began the day as a hot mess, with only three hours of sleep and spilling coffee on my copy of 1Q84. However, as the conference began and I started my job of
    monitoring the sessions, tweeting up a storm and acting as charming
    co-founder, I found myself realizing that getting the first job is not
    the end of following one’s passion. It should be a lifelong voyage to
    constantly search for what inspires and moves you and devote your energy to it every day.Below are some tips that were tweeted during the conference and
    throughout the weekend. I also just want to share that the number of
    people using our official hashtag #FindPassion was insane – 2 million
    impressions! Real life social interactions work!
