My Own Bucket List By Ru Chiang

The word “fun” pretty much sums up my time as an intern at Garage Society. That comfortable office space, the awesome team, and the cool events & workshops - these images still come back to my mind from time to time.

During the three-month internship, I acquired and improved upon a number of skills, but videography is one that stands out. In the past, I edited videos for my own interest, and was not very concerned with the styling and flow of the content. However, when it comes to marketing for companies, everything has to be consistent with the brand image and be as appealing as possible. Under the supervision of James and Min, I learned quite a few tricks for making video clips more eye-catching and helpful in enhancing the brand image. I really appreciate their patience guiding me, and the occasional discussions about their perspective on life, which I think is one of the valuable things that people gain from working alongside such a vibrant and young startup team. Another unforgettable experience of being an intern in the Garage Society is meeting the Founder Elaine. Although it is almost universally established that startups are more vibrant and more fun compared with the huge corporates, I was still stunned when I met Elaine. Unlike any business person I’ve met, I was really humbled by how energetic and approachable she was, as well as being a professional who’s passionate about business building. I still vividly remember how she talked about her bucket list during our team Christmas dinner because I felt so inspired by the individual in front of me, who lives her life with passion and positivity. Of course, I want to thank every member in the Garage Team for an awesome three months. I’m really glad and grateful that our lives came too across, and hope they will intersect again sometime in the future.
