A Word from Former Interns
– Elena, Summer 2021
“I am extremely grateful to have had the chance to intern for Mycah because I got to not only learn more about photography, but also witness what it is like to run a business, create valuable relationships and learn life skills!! At this job, I found it nearly impossible to become bored because I was always meeting new people and doing new things! The hustle is real in this job, but I found it really rewarding, so if you are someone who is willing to dedicate your time into creating great (photography) experiences for others, I suggest this role for you!!!”
