When I first started my internship, I could have never predicted I would have such an enriching experience. Since Day 1, the Retail & Special Experiences team embraced me and encouraged my ideas. Throughout the past 7 months, I’ve had the tremendous opportunity to develop and launch the Flagship stores’ TikTok strategy and facilitate one of a kind retail experiences.

The thing I love about working with the Flagship team is their ability to provide unique and memorable in-store experiences for the local community. In November, our Flagship store in Chicago hosted Parade Day in celebration of AT&T’s sponsorship of the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. The Parade Day celebration featured loads of activities for the whole family including face painting, a virtual scavenger hunt, hot chocolate, holiday cookie decorating, and more!


During the event, I had the pleasure of hosting our influencer talent, Josie Bensko, walking her through all of the special holiday in-store experiences, that are still up for you to check out yourself 😉. Josie created a wonderful reel recapping her time at the store. Once the in-store event was over and the sun had set, it was time for the Lights Festival to begin and watch our AT&T float light up Michigan Ave with holiday cheer.

Never in a million years would I have thought standing in below freezing weather could be so fun but dancing and singing along to the best holiday hits with our Director of Sales is a memory I’ll never forget!

As my internship comes to a close, I am extremely grateful to the entire Retail and Special Experiences team for making this internship the absolute best ever! I can honestly say AT&T’s EDGE internship connected me to greater possibilities 💙

Thank you, #LifeAtATT!
