The conclusion of my internship at The Y – Vikesh Mistry

The last 3 weeks have flown by at The Y – Youth homeless charity, here in Leicester. Whilst I have been here, I have worked in the Marketing and Fundraising team, mainly supporting the Cirque Du Y event at The Y Theatre. The event consisted of; Burlesque dancers, magicians, circus acts and an auction, in which I was the winning bidder of a limited edition LCFC watch.

I was also actively involved in the planning of the ‘Declutter to Refresh’ event at the Highcross Leicester, along with carrying out research to support the 2019 Annual Report and spending time designing graphics for print and digital use.

Getting involved with; event planning and delivery, social media, content creation and campaign planning has helped me to sharpen up my skills and put me in great stead for my next job.

I will take away some brilliant memories working here at The Y, having seen the work conducted by dedicated staff to help young homeless people. I have worked with a fantastic team and have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity through DMU Graduate Champions, to gain experience in a new sector.
