It is such a pleasure to be back on board for my sixth and sadly my last go around as a Style Guru. My name is Jasmine Goodwin. I am a senior Broadcast Journalism major and Theater minor at Hampton University. Aside from my “Home by the Sea” at college, I come from a small suburb outside of “the city of brotherly love,” Philadelphia.
I love being a part of CollegeFashionista and highlighting the many fashions at my university. Interning for CollegeFashionista has developed my insight on fashion as well as my personal style for writing. It has certainly become an ideal platform for exposing my writing and photography. CollegeFashionista has granted me great exposure to the fashion world and fashion journalism. Also during my tenure as a style guru, I’ve earned an amazing opportunity to have a featured article on The Huffington Post Online in the spring of 2014.
Fashion has always been a big part of my lifestyle. There has never been a day that’s gone by where I didn’t take my outfit choices seriously. I suppose that I come from a long line of Fashionistas/os. My parents have always made it imperative that I be “presentable” leaving the house at any given moment. I like to think that my personal style is hard to categorize. My wardrobe is diverse—a representation of my versatility. I love variation and creating any look that I desire. Fashion is a way of expression, and I treat it as an art. I thank CollegeFashionista for providing an outlet to express my perspective on fashion! I am incredibly thrilled to participate in the spring 2015 semester as the final run of my style guru journey. Let’s make it a great one!
