Bonjour everyone! My name is Kevin Young and I've recently joined the Trend Hunter team as an intern. I'm a hopeful journalist, food lover, soon-to-be globe trotter who laughs all the time (maybe a bit too much).

More to come!
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Won't be a secret anymore if I reveal that, hey?
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The ability to write about neat and new things and knowing people are soaking in that information (and who knows what they're doing with it). That's cool. The Trend Hunter team is amazing. I got lucky.
How do you reset to be creative?
Change, change and more change.
What inspires or excites you?
Knowing that there are many undiscovered aspects of life out there. Everything is growing from something that already exists. Adaptation.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Globe trotting. Writing from around the world wherever that may be. Watch me!
