Kaitlyn Chitvaranund is a fashion merchandising major with a minor in business. While studying in NYC this past fall she was able to work with Rhea Kulcsar. Rhea Kulcsar is a KSU fashion school alum who turned her passion for jewelry into a career. Rhea designs and hand makes one of a kind pieces that are unique, fashionable and chic. Statement pieces are her favorite and she loves stones.
Kaitlyn's typical work day consisted of taking photographs of the jewelry for the company's website, updating the company's listings, keeping track of inventory, and working in the store. A highlight during Kaitlyn's time, besides working in the city and learning from Rhea, was the day she met Zendaya while doing inventory at the store! (Jealous).
A piece of advice that Kaitlyn has for those of you looking for future internships is to not be afraid to try something new and don't think you have to take the first offer you receive. "Take time to think about what you want, and what you will gain from each internship opportunity." Great advice, girl!
