Tana Makmanee

Superstar

A graduate from the University of Toronto, I've learned that you really have to go after what you love to do, not what people 'think' you should do. I love to spend time with friends and family and absolutely love people with a sense of humor. I can’t get enough of anything celebrity news related and can watch YouTube videos for hours on end! Writing has always been a passion and I’ve found that it can be such an incredible way to convey your thoughts. With a little touch of creativity and imagination you can turn a simple story into something amazing.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I love cats.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Graduating with honors from The University of Toronto. Also being able to work on a BILD (Building Industry and Land Development) social media project for a client that won for best social media campaign.
How do you define cool?
I would define cool as the understated. Anything that looks like it's trying too hard is definitely not cool.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Going beyond the norm and finding the weirdest, coolest or strangest thing out there. Odds are someone else will find them interesting too!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
It definitely has to be the community. Working at Trend Hunter not only allowed me to enhance my skills in social media and journalism, but it also allowed me to engage and interact with the most creative and humorous people around!
What is your favorite trend?
Ephemeral marketing. Especially the use of Snapchat for connecting with consumers.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
A bit of humor goes a long way.
How do you reset to be creative?
Definitely a clear mind gets the creative juices flowing. If you're too wrapped up thinking about something else then you're most likely not focused on the task at hand.
What inspires or excites you?
Could be anything.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Kim Kardashian for President.
