My name is Isabelle Epskamp and I’m from Chicago, Illinois. I’m a freshmen at Boston University and I’m currently in the school of communications. I plan on majoring in public relations with a minor in marketing.
Fashion has always been a passion of mine. When I was a little kid my favorite gifts were always the clothes I received and from then on my love for fashion grew. In seventh grade I began to constantly read fashion magazines. I had a subscription to Seventeen, Elle, and Marie Claire. I became obsessed with reading the articles and looking at every picture, making sure that I read the magazine cover to cover multiple times. In high school I took a journalism class and eventually started writing for my school newspaper. Although I never was able to write about fashion, I still loved writing the articles.
I’m so excited to be writing for CollegeFashionista because I feel like this internship is bringing me closer to achieving the type of career that I plan to pursue. I can’t imagine having a job that doesn’t consist of fashion or writing, so this internship is the perfect combination. My ideal career is writing for a magazine like Elle or Marie Claire.
When I’m not spending all my time being a student, I devote a lot of my time to fashion. I love looking at blogs and magazines. I find a lot of my style inspiration from the blogs that I follow. I also love traveling. Traveling to new places always inspires new ideas about fashion for me. My love for fashion continues to grow everyday and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to be writing for CollegeFashionista.
