Hey, CAPA fam! Welcome back to my blog.

I’ve officially been interning for Mashay, an up-and-coming social media app, for over a week now and already have so much to share with you. To start off, Mashay is an app that aims to connect users with other likeminded individuals by providing a platform that offers unique local activities in Sydney that can be shared with large groups of people. These experiences range from wine crafting to live music events to axe-throwing and are all in collaboration with local businesses throughout the city. Mashay’s experiences deviate from the typical mainstream activities that pop up when you do a Google search, allowing users to really get an authentic feel for Sydney’s lifestyle- or as we would say, #mashout like the locals. The app is set to launch sometime next week which is really exciting! I’m glad to have started at such an integral time.
