I'm a 25 year old Communications graduate from Carleton University. Just moved to the city from Ottawa and starting my internship at Trend Hunter this November.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm having a hard time coming up with something. Maybe what's unique about me is how there is nothing unique about me. Was that profound? Maybe. A cop out? You betcha.
How do you define cool?
Just be yourself and live life on your own terms. I'm aware of how uncool that sounds, but I don't care; and that makes me cool. Right? If that's not cool just let me know and I'll change it.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I just started, so for now I'm going to say searching for things I'm already interested. I search for things I know, or things I want to know or would like to know. That way it makes the search more enjoyable. Hopefully I'll come up with an actual system the more I do this, so I'll get back to you.
