Xanath - My experience at Feraggio
by Xanath De Kruyff
My name is Xanath De Kruyff and I am proud to say that I’m one of the creative interns at FERAGGIO! Although my last name can be deceiving since it is Dutch, I actually come from Mexico and now I’ve been living in the Netherlands for almost two years. My aspiration to come to Europe started in 2017, when I decided to move to Germany to pursue my dream of living abroad. Even though my intention was to study in Germany…I decided spontaneously to move to the Netherlands instead, after finding a very interesting degree in Arts and Culture Studies at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Now I’m in my second year of university and I am happy to say that I do not regret my decision of moving to the Netherlands and studying this degree, since it has given me the opportunity to live in an international environment, meet incredible people, form beautiful long-lasting connections with friends that have become my family, and lastly, to work for such a luxurious brand like FERAGGIO. I’m happy to say that I call the Netherlands my home.
I am the latest addition to the creative team of FERAGGIO and although I have been working here for a few weeks only, I’m already learning a lot! Being the last person to join the team, I have faced quite a few challenges in my first tasks, which mainly relate to photography, but thanks to the help of my colleagues, I have managed to improve and further develop myself as a professional photographer. I feel very comfortable with my team, since they are very patient, supportive and respectful of my work and I am grateful to work with a team that has a lot of experience in the Fashion industry, since it is helping me expand my knowledge in this cultural sector. Even though I’m just an intern, everyone makes me feel like I’m also part of the company and that my inputs are valuable. At FERAGGIO your opinion always matters!
Working at FERAGGIO has been an absolute pleasure for me, because I get to work with such an amazing team of creative and motivated individuals that share the same passion for Fashion. One of the things I like most about my internship is being able to have the opportunity to work in a small company, since I believe that not only am I learning more this way, but it is also very comfortable and intimate. On the other hand, I also love the environment at the office…it is super cozy, everyone is very welcoming and most of all I absolutely love that there are so many chickens!
Finally, I can say with certainty that FERAGGIO is a special company, not only because they offer beautiful and luxurious heels to customers, but because it is a company that also offers an experience. Working here doesn’t feel like a normal job, since the team is always fun to be around with and every single individual is extremely determined and passionate. I think that it is precisely this determination, passion and motivation that leads to incredible results, high customer satisfaction and beautiful heel designs for every single occasion!
