A Magazine 2017 Highlights

This past semester, I had the honor of working as the Managing Editor of Kent State’s fashion, beauty and culture publication, A Magazine (check out our website!) . Our staff had so much collaborative talent, and I couldn’t be prouder to have been a part of our team. We really made conscious effort this year to gear our content towards the creative, empowering Kent State student.

As Managing Editor, I had an array of duties that ranged from editorial and fashion brainstorming to coordinating photoshoots and even writing a piece for the magazine. Below are some of the highlights from our print issue for those of you who don’t have access to a hard copy:

Teen Vogue x A Magazine Back-to-School Party

Out of the thousands of Teen Vogue IT Girls across the country, I was lucky enough to be chosen to host one of the thirty Teen Vogue Back-to-School events. Being an IT Girl has definitely been an honor. Thus far, I’ve been able to participate in exclusive product trials, be featured as IT Girl of the week, as well as attend Teen Vogue Fashion University, but this has been the cherry on top of a priceless experience. Of course, I chose to share this exciting opportunity with KSU’s Fashion & Lifestyle publication, A Magazine, where I work as the Managing Editor. Our fantastic team put our hard work and dedication together to make this event the best it could possibly be. We had our booth set at KSU’s Black Squirrel Fest which features over 200 organizations. Guests were encouraged to enter raffles by posting on social media with our hashtags, browse through various goodies gifted from Teen Vogue, and ask A Magazine staffers about what it’s like working for A. Kent’s massive student body, especially made up of fashion and media related majors, were the perfect prospects to introduce the latest must-haves from Teen Vogue. A huge thank to Teen Vogue, the amazing sponsors, A Magazine, and everyone who came out to celebrate the start of another incredible year at KSU!

Fall 2014 Semester Recap

It’s finals week here at Kent State University, so I thought I’d do a recap on my experiences throughout this semester. At the beginning on the school year, I was questioning if KSU was going to be the right fit for me… But after fifteen weeks here, I couldn’t be more thankful to be a part of Kent State University’s Fashion School.

I’ve tried to take advantage of every possible way of utilizing my time at KSU. I joined the Fashion Student Organization, which gets students more involved with the fashion industry than I ever expected. Something is always going on, whether it’s planning a fashion show or having an industry professional come speak to us. I also had the honor of being featured in A Magazine, Kent’s fashion magazine, along with other incredibly talented bloggers. Throughout the semester, I attended fashion shows put on by FSO, Modista, and was able to do press at Her Campus’s College Fashion Week in Chicago.

I’ve already been busy hunting down opportunities for the spring semester. I’ll be working as a representative for one of my favorite stores AKIRA Chicago, as well as another exciting new internship with a Chicago styling company is in the works. To The Nines has been accepted into various affiliate programs, and I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes. I can’t wait for other amazing opportunities to continue to unfold throughout the next few months. Thank you to all the loyal subscribers for reading and supporting my fashion endeavors!
