art + fashion

I've been fortunate enough to be able to write about things I'm passionate about and during my time as Arts & Entertainment Editor I was able to create and maintain a relationship with the Utah Museum of Fine Arts on campus.

I covered several exhibit openings at the UMFA in addition to writing about the annual Utah Arts Festival in downtown Salt Lake and events at the Natural History Museum of Utah.

As a fashion junkie with a shoe collection that borders on obsession, it's safe to say that writing about clothes, style and the perfect pair of pumps is something I can get behind.

I wrote for Bloglovin's - The Edit as a content creation intern and was able to kick-start a series of fashion features at the Daily Utah Chronicle during my time as Arts & Entertainment Editor.

The next life you lead is determined by the actions of the previous one (karma). In one lifetime, people build both good and bad karma that will continually affect their future lives and existences.
