Meet our Winter Interns! They’ve been helping keep our site up and running for the past months and they bring an incredible spirit and energy to the Man Repeller office. They also each have a unique sense of style, so we asked them to document a week of their outfits for their very own round of Intern Office Apropos. Learn a little about them below in the words of Lauren, click through above and then say hi in the comments!

I started as an Editorial Intern in January. My days consist of copy editing (which means reading all of the articles before anyone else — well, except Leslie, MR’s Editorial Director), transcribing (typing up recorded interviews conducted by Leandra, AmeliaHaley or Harling before they’ve actually written the story) and researching for stories.

The interns at MR number four right now and each one of us works within a different department. I help out editorial, Louisiana works in photo, Danielle is in the fashion department and Sofia assists our social media team.

Being an intern at Man Repeller is kind of like a box of chocolates in that you never know what you’re going to get. (Thanks Forrest.) One time, Danielle was challenged with finding 23 different colored condoms. Another time, she had to track down a strawberry that was “pointy and dark red.” Sometimes Louisiana has to scout photoshoot location spots around SoHo. Sofia has stepped in as a beauty model. Once, we all had to unpack four Topshop suitcases from London, take photos of each item and then pack them back up the exact same way.

While some days involve strange treasure hunts or last-minute photoshoots, we’ve also attended NYFW shows, had our hair blown out at Drybar and obtained early access to sample sales (and who doesn’t love a good sample sale?).

That’s what makes interning so exciting: no day is the same and yet each day is like living a dream.
