Becoming a Victoria’s Secret PINK Campus Representative for Kent State is easily one of the best things to happen to me during my college years. I served as one of two Campus Reps for the 2016-2017 school year, and will continue to serve as one for this upcoming year. I am thrilled and so grateful for this experience, because it is truly unlike any other.
Victoria’s Secret PINK is a company that I’ve loved my entire life, and somewhere I could see myself working after graduation. Getting to be a PINK Campus Rep has been a dream come true, and has allowed me to learn about the brand in a whole new way. Being a rep allowed me to see how much work it takes to promote a new trend on campus and how much passion and creativity goes into everything the brand does. I have had so much fun hosting events, creating social media posts and engaging with girls on campus. This year I’m planning even more fun and new PINK ideas with my amazing new co-rep, Samantha Arslanian.
Samantha and I just attended the Victoria’s Secret PINK Brand Certification training in Columbus, Ohio last week and it truly was a dream. We got to attend a PINK Festival equipt with a ferris wheel, bounce house, ice cream and hair and face paint stands. Not to mention we all received PINK gift cards to shop the beautiful Easton store and snag the latest PINK styles. Oh and PINK model Zuri Tibby was there to hang out and take photos with. Totally casual.
On the second day of training we learned everything we need to know to be the best PINK Reps ever. I really valued this training, and found it very rewarding. It was great to hear from different PINK employees along with former PINK reps and interns. I always feel so inspired leaving this training, and valued beyond belief. That night we attended our very own PINK graduation, and shopped the PINK bus to score even more exclusives. Everything about brand certification felt like a dream.
Samantha and I will be recruiting a Campus Team this fall and will be looking for girls that are passionate about PINK to help us plan events and execute fun activities all school year long. We will post all about this on our social handles for those who are interested!
We are really eager and ready for the school year to start and are already planning fun ways to get Kent girls excited about the brand. We plan to have a super creative new way to get girls excited about PINK during Welcome Weekend, so be on the lookout for some cool surprises from us on campus. We are so happy to rep PINK this year and we can’t wait to be back on campus.
