Hello everyone! I’m Shawn. 19 weeks of fun has passed at Jurong Frog Farm and my internship has come to an end. Working at the farm has been a pleasant experience. For my first few weeks, I was lucky enough to be working with Jackson, Caleb and Herman. As I was new at that time, I took some of the easier jobs like guiding people to the shop and telling them where to park their cars. I also learned how to host a tour for the farm. However, near the end of April, I had to go for a surgery for a condition I had and was out of commission for a month.
I came back after I felt much better and was welcomed back by my colleagues, which I am grateful for. It was the June Holidays period when I came back, though because of the Covid situation it was relatively empty. Still, I had to learn how to operate as a cashier as well as relearn the points of the tour as well as what to say for certain items. I learned a lot about farms and how much goes in to maintaining one (I cannot imagine how much morebusier the farm could have been!)
Apart from doing tours and working the cashier, I also helped to create graphics for the farm. Through feedbacks from Chelsea, I was able to reinforce my knowledge on what was needed when designing graphics. Through this internship, working with my colleagues, supervisors, and the workers, I had a lot of fun working at the farm and learnt many things from them and I am grateful for having the opportunity to work at the farm.
