Hi there! My name is Ewan and I’m so excited to be a part of the WE LIKE YOU family for the next 2 months. First things first, let’s have quick chat, shall we? Grab a cup of tea and get to know me better. Enjoy!
- How would you describe yourself?
In the beginning, I’m quite shy, but after talking to me for two minutes I open up. I’m someone who laughs at pretty much everything. Aside from that I’m friendly, spontaneous and always in the mood for sushi.
- What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone?
That I’m really into music, I treat my Spotify premium account like it’s my baby. My singing voice is a topic we should avoid though.
- What inspires you?
People who aren’t afraid to be themselves. Sounds super cliché, but just do you and everything will fall into place.
What made you choose WE LIKE YOU for your internship?
I mean, have you seen their Instagram feed? Goals. No, but in all honesty the aesthetic of WE LIKE YOU is something that caught my attention. Also, the WLY team looks like a bunch of hard working people who love what they do. I’m excited to be a part of their team for the next two months.
Your first day as a #WLYIntern. In one word, how do you feel?
Nervous, but really excited! Those are four words, but you get what I mean.
- What do you anticipate learning during this internship?
I hope to learn more about social media marketing. Also, I would love to create amazing social media content for companies. I can’t wait!
- How does your first day at WE LIKE YOU feel?
Great! Everyone was so friendly and lovely from the second I walked into the office, so I’m happy.
- Are you a Social Media fanatic?
I wake up with social media and I go to bed with it, so yeah, we’re couple goals.
- How much time do you spend on social media?
I’m literally glued to my iPhone, so pretty much all day. Apple just came out with this new function where you can see how much time you’ve spent on your iPhone. I’m afraid to look at it, says enough, doesn’t it?
- Who or which brand do you like the most on Instagram?
Urban Outfitters, hands down. I’m obsessed with their Instagram aesthetic. I find it interesting how they change up their feed when a new season arrives. In the fall, they use warm tones in their pictures, while the winter photos have a more blue and grey undertone. I’m also really into graphic design, so Adobe is one of my favourite accounts to follow.
- What do you think about the future of social media?
The future is social media. Today, a brand can simply not survive without a good social media strategy. I’m curious to find out where social media are taking us in the following years.
- What gets you up in the mornings?
It’s almost impossible to wake me up in the morning, my 13 alarms know.
- Current song on repeat?
When The Party’s Over by Billie Eilish. If you don’t know that song: stop everything you’re doing and go listen now. 🎼
- How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?
I’m afraid I can’t answer that, please try again later, or don’t. I love elephants, why would you ask such a thing?
- What’s the silliest nickname ever given to you?
Some of my friends call me ‘Joewen’, because my teacher thought you pronounced my name like that. It gets on my nerves and they know it. We love a great friendship, you know?
- How would you describe you having a good time?
Hanging out with friends while eating sushi and drinking rosé. Did I mention drinking rosé?
- What are your favourite apps?
Instagram, it feels like my second home. Is that sad to say? Probably.
- What is your favorite TV-show?
I’m not really into TV-shows, but I’ve watched every season of American Horror Story at least five times, so I guess that show.
- What is your favorite place to visit in the world?
In February last year I went to South Africa for three weeks. One of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever visited. Even though I was attacked by monkeys, still had an amazing experience and can’t wait to go back.
- Which kind of music genre do you ‘dig’?
Everything, literally everything. I can go from listening to the most depressing Billie Eilish song to shaking my booty to Cardi B, really depends on my mood.
- What would you never ever wear?
Pants that cut off just below your knees. In Dutch their called ‘driekwarsbroeken’. No offense, but why do they exist?
- Last but not least, how do people recognise you?
If you see a blonde guy eating sushi in a restaurant, then that’s probably me.
So, that’s it, I hope you guys know me a little bit better. See ya later!
