Hello, hello! My name is Mia Amaranto from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA and after taking the summer off, I’m so excited to be back on board for my fourth semester as a Style Guru this Fall! I will forever be grateful for this opportunity to write about what I love and share it with others who have the same passion as me. Not only has this given me the chance to continuously improve and add to my talents and skills, but I’ve also met some pretty inspiring individuals from all over the country. Through this internship, I’ve learned from industry professionals that I wouldn’t be able to connect with elsewhere.
When I started this internship in the spring of my freshman year, I was unsure with my career path and I didn’t know what direction I wanted to take my passions to. However, as I continued to write, photograph and connect with other Style Gurus and students I also began to learn and discover more about myself and where my strengths are. Even though I still have a long way to go, I’m thankful for where I am now and it’s exciting to see what this season has in store!
