Hi there!  I’m Amber and the next 4 months, you’ll find me at the WE LIKE YOU office. Excited? Pretty much! Ready to rumble, ready to introduce myself. This is me in a – quite big – nutshell.

 

  • How would you describe yourself?

A bit shy at first, but a motormouth once I get to know people. Oops. I’m motivated to get the best out of everything and (unfortunately for my hips) always in the mood for food.

 

  • What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone?

I might seem a bit lazy, and on Sundays I am, but I’m actually a busy bee. Besides working to get my degree, I take piano classes, love horseback riding, spend a lot of time working for my student association and try to use my gym membership from time to time. In the meantime, I like to travel as much as possible. Next up? Thailand!

 

  • What inspires you?

People who eat like a pig and don’t gain any weight. Are they even human? No, seriously now. I admire people who get things done, climb the ladder and build their own career.

 

  • What’s the best piece of advice someone has given to you?

Might sound like a cliché, but the best piece of advice you can possibly get is to follow your heart and do you. Follow your gut, it’s the best guideline!

 

  • What made you choose WE LIKE YOU for your internship?

How could I not choose WE LIKE YOU? A young team that gets their hands dirty working with social media. Really inspiring for a communications student with a secret crush on Instagram.

 

  • Your first day as a #WLYIntern. In one word, how do you feel?

So nervous I even let my boyfriend drive my car…

 

  • Are you a Social Media fanatic? 

Yes, yes, yes!. When I wake up, I grab my phone faster than I grab a cup of coffee. I don’t drink coffee anyway, but you get it.

 

  • How much time do you spend on social media?

According to my parents: too much. But hey, it’s my (future) job, isn’t it? 😉

 

  • Who or which brand do you like the most on Instagram?  

Soep&Zoet, for sure! Dreaming about the best brunch all day, that would be me.

 

  • What do you think about the future of social media?

Social media will take over the world. Did you know even Crocs has its own Instagram profile? Enough said.

 

  • What gets you up in the mornings?

My boyfriend’s 5 alarms. Lifehack: don’t date someone that snoozes.

 

  • Current song on repeat? 

Super Trouper – ABBA. It’s just a phase, I promise.

 

  • How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?

Are we still doing that? Animal rights, guys!

 

  • How would you describe you having a good time?

Watching Netflix all night long, please.

 

Katja Verloo, social media agency, instagram, internship, intern, WE LIKE YOU,

  • What are your favourite apps? 

Probably Instagram and Twitter. And I must admit, I use Pixlr a lot to edit my pictures. I should really work on my Photoshop skills, but that’s why I’m here, right?

 

  • What is your favorite TV-show?

At the moment, I’m really hooked on The Originals. I’ve got a thing for vampires I guess.

 

  • What is your favorite place to visit in the world?

Australia is the ultimate dream!

 

  • Which kind of music genre do you ‘dig’?

Kind of a rockchick over here. Is it time for Rock Werchter already?

 

  • Last but not least, how do people recognise you?

The loudest voice/laugh in the room, that’s me.
