Megan Facciuolo is a journalism and communications major interning at Trend Hunter. She thrives in multi-media environments; Some of her experiences include being a layout editor for Mohawk College's Ignite News and co-hosting a weekly newscast for Cable14.

In her personal life, she tries to curtail her extravagances like cinnamon dolce lattes and online shopping in order to pay for her travels. She believes in making memorable experiences over having material goods.

Megan is thrilled to be applying her love for anything cool, new and exciting, along with her journalism knowledge to Trend Hunter!
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I've never had a Big Mac. Seriously.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Getting this kick-ass internship!
How do you define cool?
I dont believe cool can be defined; "to each his own".
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Always being aware; trend hunting is a 24/7 gig.
