The 365 Project: April

April began 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 fourth 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 …

The 365 Project: March

March was the month of being brave. I started my final year of University. I applied (and trained up) for going on student radio with my friend Timmy. I applied for a crazy-competitive student editorship which made me walk around Uni talking to, filming and taking photos of strangers. A piece I wrote on how students experience religion became the cover story of my Uni magazine. Day 60-91 of 2015 pushed me out of my comfort zone, made me fall deeper in love with media and taught me to believe in myself a bit more. But I guess the point of this project isn’t to simply remember the significant moments in my life – the milestones that I doubt I will forget easily. The point is to also dedicate the same amount of mind-space (or page space, in this case) to the everyday thoughts and activities and ideas that, cumulatively, make me me. March was also a month to think more about personal style – what makes people pay attention to you, what makes you look …
