When my children were in grade two, they participated in a Flat Stanley project at school. Each time, we sent each kid’s flat-version to my friend Holly in Michigan. My ‘flat-kids’ had wild adventures travelling with Holly and her family. They discovered the world (literally!) and their ‘flat-versions’ came home with incredible stories and photos.
It’s a great project and a ton of fun.
We’ve recently been blessed with Holly’s daughter Sofia’s “flat Sofia”. While we don’t get to travel the world for work (like Holly’s husband), we are really enjoying having Flat Sofia around and immersing her in the Okanagan lifestyle.
She allows us to slow down and remember to take photos and capture moments in life. Snapshots. Postcards. Memories.
Flat Sofia spent a few days interning with me at GetOn.com. She became the perfect marketing Intern. After all, her ‘job’ is to collect stories of her adventures and share them at home with her real-life-Sofia. Isn’t that pretty much Social Media? We thought so.
On Flat Sofia’s first day on the job, we gave her an Instagram account. Here, she will be documenting the rest of her stay with GetOn.com and my family.
She got a taste of GetOn culture (Coffee, Bacon/Egger sandwiches, Beef Dip Tuesday)
She got lost in the forest
She got to visit one of our Client’s: Watermark Beach Resort
She took the EQ Traveller-Type Quiz – She’s an Authentic Experiencer. She likes to be fully immersed in her travel destinations
When she’s not working as a marketing intern she’s been driving the kids around, attended a swim meet, spent time at a dance studio and been enjoying Kelowna’s glorious fall weather.
She’ll be here for a while, so follow her Instagram account and stay up-to-date on her adventures. #flatsofia
