What a busy day! I can't believe how much we did!
Oh, excuse me. Let me introduce myself.
I'm Cecile, 21 years old. I'm from France. Woaw... What am I doing here? Very good question!
Testing out laser-etching.
I'm doing an internship for a month with Northbound Notebooks. It's an assignment after my first year of study for my International Business program. It's a bit tough to explain, but here you go:
I had to find a company -- it was not so easy. To be honest, my dream was to work in a winery. Didn't quite work as planned! Then I was looking for a startup in Canada -- yes, I forgot to tell you, I've always wanted to visit Canada. I wanted to go to Canada for many years, I was always attracted to it.
And that lead me to find some startups in Ottawa. I clicked on one of them, and what a nice surprise! Raw materials, cut by hand, yeah, we are talking about Northbound Notebooks.
I thought, woaw, people who want to create hand-made, fair-trade products. It's what I love!
I thought, I could do everything for them. At the beginning, you need everything. Ok, I'll send them a message on their Facebook page. That's how my adventure began.
After a few long months, some emails, and a few skype calls, here I am. I'll be sharing my adventure with you for the next month.
So please, follow me as I travel across Ontario and Quebec. I'm going to be meeting interesting people, finding unique places, and showcasing Northbound Notebooks everywhere I go. I promise to bring you with me wherever I end up.
