Meet Virginia! She is our operations intern–she helps make sure that everything operates smoothly here at Bloguettes when it comes to workshops and events! Not only does she help find our picturesque workshop venues, amazing sponsors, and yummy food for our workshops, but we’ve also got a major Instagram crush on her! See for yourself here.
Where are you from and what brought you to Arizona? I was born and raised in Texas, but my family moved to the East Coast when I was in my early teens. I never adjusted to the long, freezing winters and by the time college rolled around, I was desperate to move somewhere warm. I didn’t really know much about Arizona or ASU but I took a chance and moved my whole life out here… and I’m so glad I did. I love it here!
What is your major in college and why? I am majoring in business communication and minoring in media analysis. I like that my business classes are diverse, challenging, and will prepare me for many different career paths. My minor is through the journalism school and allows me to use my creative side. It’s like the best of both worlds!
If you weren’t living in Arizona, where would you like to live? Southern California! I love sunshine and the beach.
Describe your dream job. I have always wanted to work in the fashion industry, but I’m open to wherever my future takes me. I just hope to have a job that allows me to be creative, makes me happy, and brings me to inspiring people.
What do you love best about working for Bloguettes? I love being surrounded by creative, hard-working people that inspire me. No two days are the same and I’ve learned so much in the short time that I’ve been here.
Which types of blogs do you like best, and who are your favorite bloggers? I love fashion and lifestyle blogs. My favorite is currently Sincerely Jules. I love her style! I also love the Free People Blog and get so much outfit inspiration from their fpme program.
What do you like to do in your free time? I like to keep myself busy! I love to spend time outdoors and I travel every chance I get. Occasionally I’ll try a new recipe from my Pinterest board, I’m Pinterest obsessed. My best friend and I are actually planning on taking a cooking class this summer.
Describe your personal style. My style is constantly evolving. I have found that I wear a lot of neutrals, but I love to mix it up with a printed dress or a romper from time to time. I personally believe that accessories can make an outfit, so I love to add a hat and a lot of jewelry!
What’s your favorite social media channel and why? Instagram! I could browse the popular page for hours. I love that you can create your own personalized feed. I get inspiration for outfits, decor, food, travel, and more.
How has being part of the Bloguettes team influenced you and your career path? I hope to start my own blog sometime in the future and I know that everything I’ve learned at Bloguettes will definitely help me do that. I learned so much through the workshop that will help me in my professional life in the future.
What is your hidden talent? I know how to make really fun tie-dye cupcakes and cakes!
Name three things you can’t live without. Chai, my cell phone, and my planner.
