Work at RataPlan
Leiru started her internship in September at RataPlan and feels very happy. As a trainee she likes to be given a lot of responsibility for certain tasks and to give her own creative interpretation to the tasks. 'I learn a lot from the internship on a personal and professional level RataPlan and I'm happy about that, "says Leiru.
Who is Leiru?
Leiru was born in China and is a real recycling fan! The thrift store that she visited for the first time was thrift store RataPlan in the Willem Roelofstraat (Amsterdam). She was amazed by the low prices for the nicest things. She once had Dr. Martens shoes for 6 euros RataPlan found it. She has since been sold and has been shopping at the thrift store for eight years.
You can make Leiru happy with many different things. So she can fully enjoy tasty tea and sometimes she tries out strange tea flavors such as ginger with turmeric and mint. She is also happy with a cool recycle item. She also likes to spend time with her friends and family. And what makes her most happy is having an in-depth conversation with someone. "By having deep conversations with someone, you achieve a closer bond and you get to know someone better," says Leiru.
In her spare time she likes to walk in nature and to photograph nature. In addition, she sometimes takes a meditation or yoga course, doing this to let go of the constant stream of thoughts and to live more in the moment. She also likes to write and read books related to self-development.
Making a balloon ride is high on her bucket list and she dreams of making it above a beautiful natural landscape. We wish you a nice internship at RataPlan Leiru!
