CLASS OF 2014: Maggie

Exclusive Feature

It seems surreal that my four years as an undergrad have come to an end. I keep trying to figure out how the time passed so quickly, but I come up short. To be honest, I didn’t start loving college until my junior year. After transferring to the University at Albany after my freshman year, it took me a while to settle into life on this big campus. I switched majors a few times, unsure of what I wanted to do until I finally said enough is enough and became a music major. Music has always been my passion and it seemed like a no-brainer to declare it as my main study. I paired it with a communications major and focused my motivation on a career in the music industry.

Once sophomore year ended, I applied for a CollegeFashionista internship and was so thrilled to be accepted. I started writing the fall semester of my junior year and have been writing ever since. I loved the insight I gained while writing for CollegeFashionista; I would have never realized what a unique student body is at UAlbany. We have a very diverse student population and in turn, a huge variety of fashions and styles. Finishing my fifth semester with CollegeFashionista is bittersweet because while I will miss it so much, I feel confident to take the skills it has taught me into the real world.

Over the summer of 2013, I had a killer internship with Republic Records in New York that made me realize how determined I am to work in the music business. Now as a recent grad, I am applying to any and every job I can find at record labels, recording studios and publishing companies. It is absolutely terrifying to not have a plan, but I am incredibly excited to see where this next chapter of life takes me!
