January

January 1st is a nothing day. We spend so much energy making sure the last day of December is a story to tell, that the first day of the new year is generally wasted in bed eating melted cheese on anything you can melt cheese onto. At least, that’s what it was like for me. Someone once told me that how you spend your New Years sets the tone for the rest of your year. If January is any indication, then they were not wrong. I did eat a lot of melted cheese. But I also spent a lot of time with my friends and a lot of time thinking about friendship – about what it means to be a friend, about what kind of friend I can be, about what kind of friend I need and deserve. I think that I’ve always been a good friend because I have always had good mental health. I think that I could always be enthusiastically there for my friends in every sense of the word – always …

The 365 Project: April

April beganΒ in a general feeling of ennui. My parents had left for Europe to visit my sister, and I was feeling lonely and lost. But then on the fourthΒ day of April, things started turning around. I got an interview with ASOS for the Student Editor position I applied for in late March. I had been applying for internships in the Media/Marketing business for almost two years now, with little to no avail. I had gotten a few interviews, but none that excited me too much. And then suddenly, the one job I really thought was out of my reach came knocking at my email door. I was given two tasks – one video task and one written talk, both of which were to “introduce myself”. Now I’m not sure if any of you have ever had to explain who you are to strangers, but that’s a big question! Throw in the fact that you’re trying to impress some pretty intelligent and style-savvy women, and you’ve got yourself a pretty big challenge. For the next four …

I am an ASOS Student Editor!!

I am so so excited to officially announce that I am one of ten Australian Uni Students selected to be an Editor of ASOS’s Student Hub: ASOS On Campus!! What seemed like a sort of pipe dream when I first applied back in March has turned into one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had the honour of calling my own. Aside from getting to know nine overwhelmingly-cool and talented co-editors, I also get to write interesting articles, make short videos and (best of all) stalk incredibly stylish people on my campus to take cheeky street-style shots! And of course, I get to work with one of the biggest online fashion destinations and meet incredibly intelligent women pioneering the field of digital and editorial marketing – and this makes me so proud & grateful. You can read a little “About Me” on the hub here, but I think you should also check out all these guys because together, the ten of us will be bringing you all the coolest news from across our campuses. I …
