Last week marked my 8th month working with Salazon! This has been such a positive experience. Salazon is a locally owned and operated, dark chocolate with sea salt company out of Sykesville, Maryland. Salazon was founded on a hiking trip, inspired by having dark chocolate as a trail snack. The company sponsors several thru-hikers, people who post for the company along the way to achieving the Triple Crown. These people are not only incredibly inspiring by just accomplishing a thing such as the Triple Crown, but they all have their quirks like Buddy Backpacker who is a record setting 8 year old hiking with his parents. Or Mary Moynihan who is a woman on her way to a calendar Triple Crown.
When I started with the company in January, I knew next to nothing about hiking culture or what it took to be the online "face" of a chocolate company. Since then, I've really fallen in love with content creation. From themed lifestyle photoshoots to more, concrete product shots this internship has given me more of an idea of what I want in a future career. Cheers to time well spent with a company I've grown to love.
