Hola otra vez! I can´t believe I am back here at my favorite spot for trends and fashion inspiration. My name is Andrea Fernandez and this is my fourth semester as a Style Guru. Can you believe it? I seriously can´t. A lot has changed since I started writing for CollegeFashionista. My blog, Sanctuary of Freedom, has never been better and I’ve gained more photography and writing skills and applied it to the blog. I have also written articles for The Huffington Post and work on special brand collaborations. It feels surreal to be doing what I love while I’m in college.
This summer, I wrote for STYLE GURU STYLE. I loved it because it gave me a chance to be in front of the camera, like I do with my blog. It also gave me a deeper glance into a designer’s perspective because I had to incorporate some inspiration from their runway shows into each article I wrote. Besides my fashion blog and my duty as a Style Guru, I am also part of Teen Vogue’s Fashion Click Bloggers and Teen Vogue’s “It Girls.” This semester, I am hosting a Back-to-School party for the magazine and I couldn’t be more excited.
What I love about being a Style Guru is that you are never alone. It really feels like a community and it is such a huge platform where I can get all the inspiration I need. Every term I try to be the best I can be, bringing humor, fashion and a little bit of Latin flavor to every article. As far as I am concerned, I am not going anywhere. Any place that gives me the chance to express myself through my favorite medium deserves to be my sanctuary of freedom.
