  • Sophomore Year Final Projects

    I can't believe the day has come— a semester filled with endless deadlines, constant learning and just a few spurts of overwhelming tears is now over. 

    From the end of January to mid-may, I've had a few triumps educationally and professionally. 16-credit-hours means for a lot of projects: A photo profile on three Chicago fashionistas and a short video profile on the DIY venue Babe Palace was produced for my Digital Storytelling class. Many different types of magazine articles were written in my first concentration class, Magazine Article Writing with Sharon Bloyd-Peshkin, and I learned more than I would've ever imagined about the construction of clothing in my Fashion Product Evaluation class. Although my work-life balance suffered a bit, my efforts helped me recieve the John Fischetti Scholarship and an editor position for the fall fashion edition of Frank magazine, an online publication produced by CCC's photo, fashion and art + design and journalism departments.

    In between classes, I was honored to have my first freelanced piece published after I being an intern at Modern Luxury Chicago. I have three pieces for Brides Chicago that will be published in their upcoming book, and I contributed in the writing of LV City Guides Chicago as a freelance writer, too. At the start of the year, I was still as Sales Ambassador and Social Networker at LUSH Armitage and most recently, I have become a Senior Sales Ambassador, Key Holder and in-shop trainer. 

    I am so thankful for the opportunities that I have been presented with and plan on working extremely hard to further my skillset through those opportunities. Keep an eye out for a really exciting project to be announced soon— it's about time some interdisciplinary/collaborative action took place.

    Thank you for taking a look at all of my hard work!
