Small World

I am currently an intern at Soko Inc., a marketing and events firm, in the heart of South Street shopping. When I first applied to this internship, I had no idea how small the company was or who was the CEO. I know that information is the first thing you should find out, but I was so concentrated on finding an internship that I applied to everywhere that I could. After two weeks of putting in my application, I received a call from Soko Inc. asking me to come in for an interview and the person gave me the email of the person I would be interviewing with and the location of the office. Her name was Kenya Felton. At the time I thought nothing of it and made sure I knew the company. After a couple days, I looked at the name and then it hit me…I know this person! I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated and I remembered someone mentioning her name to me and then I realized that she was a Temple Alumni and was initiated through my chapter! Although I didn’t know her personally, I was inspired to start my own business one day. To see someone so successful at what they love to do and to be motived to go out and make a change is very rewarding to witness. Kenya Felton and her sister own a Marketing and Events firm with clients from Mumbai to Philadelphia and the clientele keeps growing. Hopefully one day I will have the motivation and the confidence to one day start my own advertising agency or marketing firm like Kenya did.
