I'm a recent grad of York University's Professional Writing program and am looking to get into fashion and beauty journalism.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I regularly eat a whole watermelon in one sitting.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Previous internships and scoring a Trend Hunter internship. Oh, and I once hula-hooped for 45 minutes straight.
How do you define cool?
Anything that is new, exciting and interesting. Something I can't wait to tell my friends about.
What inspires or excites you?
Fashion magazines and blogs
Predict something awesome for 2020?
If the world doesn't end in 2012, then Lindsay Lohan making her way back into the acting world would be awesome and shocking.
