After a few past bad experiences I decided to have a policy of not accepting high school students for internships at my studio. So when Nayana emailed me a request to consider her for an internship I had to throw some cold water on that aspiration and asked her to write a short essay why should I accept her since she was still a high school student. Well, it turned out that in order to do this internship Nayana graduated from her high school early and that she is quite an accomplished web comic artist with a solid following. Her work was a proof that she is serious about her craft and is able to deliver.
So, I made an exception to my policy and accepted Nayana for an 8 week internship. Now that the internship is over, I am willing to reconsider this whole “I will not accept high school students” policy. Nayana was exceptionally focussed and dedicated to all the tasks given to her. She applied her creative spirit to everything she did. But the one thing that made her an amazing intern was her attitude - she was always in a bright mood, ready to jump at another challenge, willing to take another task, nothing was too boring or too challenging for her.
