CLASS OF 2015: Monika

Going into college, all I knew was that I wanted to explore. My major was a mystery, I had no idea what clubs I would be joining and I was definitely unsure of what I would be doing after my four years. I had no idea that during my time at the University of Pennsylvania I would join a sorority and meet my best friends. I never would have guessed I would end up on a sports team—yet alone Penn’s polo team, and I certainly had never imagined that the internship I applied for freshman year would end up becoming an essential part of my entire college experience.

My time at CollegeFashionista was beyond invaluable. Yes, the industry experience was fantastic. More importantly, however, were the people I met and the friendships I formed. Interning for CollegeFashionista was like being part of a family: we looked out for each other, and we always had a good time. College allowed me to explore and expand, but seeing the company and people I love grow was perhaps even more rewarding. I am beyond proud and grateful to have been a part of the CollegeFashionsta family, and I am even happier to see all that the future holds for this amazing team.

My experiences at the University of Pennsylvania taught me more than I had ever imagined I would learn. I was encouraged, pushed and challenged both inside and outside of the classroom, but my college experience would have been incomplete without CollegeFashionsita. Confident and ready for any challenge, I will embark on yet another adventure after college—this time at an incredible start-up in Atlanta, Georgia. Although far from home and from the CollegeFashionista headquarters, I know I’ll find some #StyleGuruLove wherever my journey takes me.
