Interview By: Baileigh Johnson
How did you get your start as an intern?: My first internship was at Teen Vogue in the Editorial Department!
What's the best advice you have for someone seeking an internship?: The best advice that I can give is to not be afraid to send your resume out to everywhere possible. Do not have a fear of rejection. Getting your resume and name out there is how you can find an internship best suited for you. If you don't have all of the requirements, that's okay too. There is always, always room to grow and learn. Always attempt to take a risk, even if you might not succeed on the first try.
Advice for someone who already has an internship?: Try to do more than what is asked of you. Take work home, intuit your boss's needs, and try to be as helpful as possible without getting in the way.
Dream job?: Some aspect of a public relations position in the fashion or entertainment industries.
Outfit details: Top: Joie, Skirt: J. Crew, Shoes: Fendi
Define your personal style: I like to mix casual pieces with soft textures - like a draped jersey t shirt - with well tailored jeans or a skirt and a statement accessory. Most of all, I like to be comfortable. If I am going to worry how I look in something, I would rather just opt for jeans and a tee that fit me really well than be pulling at a tight dress all night - confidence is key.
