New Bird: Elena

Introducing our PR and merchandising guru

This birdie is killing it behind the scenes!  Six months ago we hit the jackpot when Elena starting working at We the Birds — not only is she fashion-loving and looks adorable every day, but she is smart and always up for a challenge! We could go on and on but decided to let her tell you more about herself:

Introduce yourself!

I’m Elena! I’m a movie-lover, a (really amateur) cook, and an Aries.

You graduate in May, what degree will you hold and what is the first thing you want to accomplish in your new career?

I will graduate with a degree in Public Relations from UNT’s Mayborn School of Journalism (Go Mean Green!). Networking is absolutely the most important thing in PR (and in life) so I think just making as many connections as possible, I’d like to think I’ve already kickstarted that!

We already know you are incredibly talented and driven - but tell us, what is it that drives you to work hard and do well?

I figure, if you aren’t going to give something your all, then why do it? I want the result of my work to reflect who I am as a person, so it only makes sense to put 100% of myself into it.

What is your favorite part about working at We the Birds?

Every day is different. There’s always something to be worked on or someone to talk to. Also, Sarah and Natalie are amazing!

What surprised you most about working for a start-up company and blog?

How much work and heart go into every single post.

Who is your style icon?

Kendall Jenner

Describe your style in a few words…

Street style for sure, comfortable and classic with a little edge.

Daily uniform?

Black Jeans, a comfy tee, my fave denim jacket a choker and some booties.

Best advice you have ever received? By whom?

“If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for everything,” - my Dad

Tell us something that few people know about you!

I won the California state history fair in 4th grade for my riveting research on the Pony Express.

Secret crush?

Hugh Grant (not so secret)

Dream job when you were 10 years old vs dream job now?

I think when I was 10 I wanted to be a doctor, I very quickly learned that science is not my forte. Now my dream job would be the international PR contact for either a fashion brand or record label.

If you were a macaron, what flavor would you be?

Earl Grey *Insert heart eye emoji*

Top destination on your bucket-list?

Switzerland or Norway!

Best meal you’ve ever had (in Dallas)?

It's a tie between Malai Kitchen’s Drunken Noodles and the Truffle Cheese Fries from Eureka! In West Village.

As an intern, what advice would you give to others about working in an entrepreneurial environment? 

Always try to be working one step ahead, do what you’re asked to do and then some because that extra work is always evident in the end.
