#MYMOGULDIARIES: Week 3,  An Upstate New York Adventure (with a car crash, turtles, and personality reveal)

My 3rd week at Mogul was a blast! 

One of the coolest parts of my week was being able to go to upstate New York with Mogul's CEO Tiffany Pham and my fellow intern Sophie to attend a Humanity @ Work Conference. It was super amazing getting to hear more about culture at the workplace and hearing Tiffany speak. We also played a very intense team-bonding game that involved multiple ping-pong balls-- which our team won


We got up super early to leave for upstate New York! 

On our way to the conference, we were in a car crash. Luckily, no one was hurt! Although there was some drama between our Uber driver and the man who crashed into her car, it was an overall fun bonding experience for all of us. We were thinking of all sorts of crazy ways we could make to the conference, including hitch hiking and walking for over 70 miles! In the end, we were able to solve the problem and get back on the road. On the way, we also encountered a turtle on the road, which a man kindly let back into the wild. 

Go Tiffany!

After Tiffany's speech, we called a taxi. It took 2 hours to get there! Guess why it was late... it was stuck behind another car crash! To pass the time, Tiffany played a personality game with us. If you haven't heard of "The Cube" before, you definitely need to try it. It is crazily accurate.  

Overall, that day was super crazy, slightly stressful, but an amazing and unique experience that I wouldn't trade for the world!  

For our weekly Friday catered food, we had our favorite spicy fish from a Chinese restaurant!
