Something AMAZING Just Happened// Featuring Alicia Souza and Me Hyperventilating

Why is today one of the BEST days of my life? Why do I sound like I’m about to burst through your screen? WHY AM I OBLIGED TO SPEAK IN CAPS LOCK??

Because guys. Something AMAZING happened today. And I may as well collapse into a squealing mess, so this post is going to be short, to the point, and FULL OF ME TOO FUZZYHEADED TO BREATHE.


How about we start at the beginning- in December, knowing that design is one of my major passions and I love it just as much as I love chocolate (that’s saying something), my mom showed me a mentorship program on a site called Unherd, incidentally run by my dad’s old colleague.

It was an opportunity to work with REAL professionals and find out how a design studio works. Naturally, I entered. Try and guess what comes next.

YOU GUESSED IT, AMIGOS.

Two days ago, I got an email saying that I got selected for the programand what is more, out of 50+ entries from all over India, I was one of three to be selected!

*cue screaming and fainting and uncontrollable hysteria*

So here’s everything in a nutshell- THIS IS THE GREATEST THING THAT’S HAPPENED TO ME SINCE DESIGN PIQUE. MY PASSION FOR DESIGN IS GOING TO BE TAKEN ONE MORE STEP FORWARD.

The designer I’m going to be learning from is the super talented ALICIA SOUZA, and the mentorship program will be held from the 15th of January (THIS MONDAY!!) to the 16th of February, once a week for five weeks, so that makes five three-hour sessions in total.

So here’s what I’m going to be doing: After every session, I’m going to squeeze my experience into a post and highlight everything I learnt.

Before I hyperventilate again, be sure to come back on Monday to see how the first day went! Oh, and PLEASE wish me luck, I’m really going to need it! <3

See you later guys, and thanks for all the support!

Much love,
Mukta

    Thank you!
    Yeah, we’ll get to that. You see, I have a lot of orders on, so I’m not really getting time. If you like, you can convey your specifications and we can start the work a little late. OR you can go for Quick Design again, you choose.

    Mukta, this is wonderful. You’re completely deserving 🙂 I hope you learn a lot and have fun. About your last email for Arhan, I think he would like a golden retriever. If you need more details, let me know via email. Sorry for the late response! 🙂
