I’ve been obsessed with the Internet ever since my parents would let me near a mouse. AIM? I was SmarterChild’s favorite buddy. MySpace? Ed would’ve been in my Top 8. When I wasn’t harassing SmarterChild or social networking, I was reading teen magazines obsessively and stalking my postman until the next month’s issue came. Though I’ve since graduated to Facebook, Tumblr, Wordpress, and Twitter, I couldn’t imagine a better way to merge my passion for magazines with my love of the Internet than pursuing a career as a web editor!
I scored my dream web internship last summer at my favorite teen magazine, where I blogged about all things boys, blush, and Bieber. I never thought I’d be interviewing talent and getting bylines—but I did! Sometime between writing posts, testing products, and stalking celebs, I feel head-over-heels with the magazine industry. I’m now serious about pursuing a career as a web editor—so you can only imagine how excited I was when my editor invited me back this year! In the world of web, like fashion, what’s in one day is out the next. My internship taught me that I want to write content that people will read across the world—and I’m so ready for the challenge!
Some other things you might want to know about me?
I’m a rising senior in college where I work as Managing Editor of my school paper. I’m finishing up my study abroad semester in Italy, where I’ve been keeping a study abroad blog in Italiano!
My best friend is completing her first magazine internship in the features department at a prestigious fashion magazine, and we can’t wait to swap stories and take NYC by storm.
That’s all for now, Edsters. It’s sure to be an incredible ride — and I can’t wait to have you on board!
Till next time,
Ed’s Web Intern
