Senduran is a Digital Arts Communication student from the University of Waterloo who is a new and proud member of the Trend Hunter team. Senduran enjoys writing both formally and creatively and likes to spend even more time exploring the realm between the two genres.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am a dancer who enjoys a comfy atmosphere often built upon tea, music and literature.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Believing in myself.
How do you define cool?
Cool is comfortable.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Curiosity. Oh! The secret's out.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Trend Hunter has given me an opportunity to enjoy and express myself while staying productive.
What is your favorite trend?
So far, "Kid-Created Plushies." I know I wrote it, but I feel like I aided in the spreading of a very caring idea.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Find yourself an idea you want to convey and convey it through your own style. Your readers will not only be given new content, but they'll be taking in a piece of you with it.
How do you reset to be creative?
I look away from the notepad for a bit and let my ideas flow to some music.
What inspires or excites you?
Passion.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
