When I moved to Vancouver, I came with big dreams of working for a company that would allow me to keep pursuing my personal goals as well as helping achieve theirs. lululemon.
Moving here was probably one of the biggest and scariest things I’ve ever done. Even though I knew my best friend would be following me in a month’s time… I came here with two suitcases, a temporary place to live, zero contacts and big goals in my head. From that day a mere two months ago, I’ve met more connections than imaginable, sat through and turned down several job opportunities and have lucked into meeting amazing people who are helping me grow as a professional and a person.
Last month I saw a position posted for lululemon and knew that I had to apply. Even though I sent in my resume and asked all of you to support my initiative – I was too late.
This time, I stepped up my game 100 fold. The position I’m applying for is the Digital Innovation Intern. I knew I had to blow the lululemon team away and come up with a concept that demonstrated how creative, motivated and innovative I can be. The position I’m applying for is not only going to allow me to get my foot in the door, but to work on a game-changing project called “Make Your Mark.” I have no idea what goals they are trying to achieve, the angle they are aiming for or the strategy that is going to be involved, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and hit the streets with how I felt I could Make my Mark!
With the help of my best friend, we set out on the streets of Kitsilano asking random people“How will you Make your Mark on the World?” I was awed and inspired by the people we had the pleasure of meeting. Here are their amazing stories and my application to the Digital Innovation Internship for lululemon:

In addition, please check out my first post about my dream to be hired by lululemon – Goal: To be hired by Lululemon where more than 50 personal contacts and friends left messages explaining how perfect I would be for the lululemon team. My Goals page which list my 1, 5 and 10 year health, personal and career goals. My Bucket List.

Thank you for taking the time to review my application to the Digital Innovation Internship position and to all who have inspired and supported me to get to this place in my life. (Extra special thank you goes to my best friend, Faith Bowyer.)
I will Make my Mark on the World by inspiring others to set scary goals, passionately go after them, achieve them and set even bigger ones.
Either way, what ever the outcome will be, I have realized what I’m capable of achieving and I know that if selected,I will be an asset to the Digital Guest Experience team at lululemon athletica.
Sincerely, Amanda Munro
