My name is Itunu, and I’m a junior studying mass communications with a concentration in convergence journalism at the University of West Georgia. This is my first semester interning for CollegeFashionista, and I’m super excited for the fashion-filled semester ahead.
Fashion is something I’ve always liked. When I was younger, I remember my older sister and I got together with our friend, and watched America’s Next Top Model; then, we made outfits out of paper and pretended we were models. Something else I liked to do was imagine different outfits in my head then draw them out. I had a whole collection, and for years, I was sure I wanted to be a fashion designer. I feel like a lot of girls did these things when they were little, so I didn’t really think much of it. I didn’t realize that I wanted a career in fashion until college, when I found out that I could actually have a career in fashion. Although my school doesn’t have a major specifically for fashion, I hope to use my mass communications degree (class of 2018, whoop!) as well as my passion for fashion to pursue a career as in fashion journalism.
I would describe my style as constantly evolving—literally, on a weekly basis. While most days, I go for the laid-back Cali-style, complete with plaid flannels and sneakers, other days I opt for the girly/preppy look with riding boots and flannels. Accessories and shoes are my thing. I love finishing up a look with a statement necklace, a baseball cap, a cute bag, etc.
One fact about me is that I love to write. I’m a creative writing minor; I also have a lifestyle blog, where I share a variety of topics from fashion and beauty to college-related posts. Some other hobbies I’ve really been into lately are graphic design as well as lettering. Because I like cursive, lettering kinda comes naturally to me, but I would really like to take a graphic design course before I graduate.
Some of my favorite things are fashion, the fruits of the Spirit, YouTube, planners, Pinterest, Instagram, good people, good food, and positive vibes.
I can’t wait for you to see some of the rad Fashionista/os at the University of West Georgia this semester!
