My name is Elizabeth Sensky, and I am a senior at The Ohio State University majoring in fashion retail studies with a merchandising specialization. So, how can I describe myself to those of you who don’t know me? Well, you could say I am many things. I am a lover of fashion (clearly). I am a bit of a foodie. I am a strong believer in natural wellness and people who strive for sustainability. I am a coffee shop addict. I am the type of person who can spend a good hour scouring racks of clothes for vintage gems. I am a sweaty yoga disciple, and I am a girl who believes that the best nights are the ones spent dancing. I am inspired by hopeful conversations with new (and old) friends. I am a person who never wants to stop learning and changing. But most of all, I am thrilled to say that I am the Head Style Guru for The Ohio State University.
It is with excitement and the sharp pang of nostalgia that I approach my final semester of college and my final semester with CollegeFashionista. I began my journey with CollegeFashionista in January of 2011. Since that time, I have watched as the site has grown from a small group of colleges to a wide array of universities across the globe. Growth has come in many forms. Not only has the site expanded physically, but it has grown richer in content and design as well.
As I look back now, I feel blessed to have had this outlet for expression each week. Not only has it pushed me out of my comfort zone and improved my writing and photography skills, but each week I am also pushed to flex my creative muscle. Every week, I have a reason to pop my personal bubble and interact with people on my campus. I slow down a bit as I observe my fellow students, and I am often blown away by the creativity that surrounds me. I could not have asked for a better initiation into the fashion industry. And it is with this pride and respect that I prepare myself for spring semester.
I hope you follow along with me as I share the Fashionistas and Fashionistos of OSU. My goal is to inspire and offer you a new perspective on college fashion. Cheers to 2013!
