Sometimes things come together when you least expect it, and for me, one of those kinda moments happened recently when Who What Wear reached out to me to partner with them for a special event this week.

For the longest time, I thought I wanted to be a journalist when I grew up. In a household where two parents worked in foreign diplomacy, having CNN International constantly on in the background was normal to me… and this passive exposure to the world of journalism was where my love of the profession began. As early as third grade, I admired women like Christiane Amanpour for pushing the limits of international journalism, and I also loved watching the special weekly programs like Style With Elsa Klensch and Inside Africa with Femi Oke… I was convinced that this was something I wanted to do as a career — I wanted to be the next big news anchor!

Of course, since the 90’s the business of journalism has changed… and unfortunately, not for the better. While I do enjoy the odd episode of reality television every now and then, I’m not a fan of the Kardashian-heavy sensationalized news headlines and click-baiting fluff articles that journalism has devolved into… and this is probably why I pivoted towards a career in marketing and communications… and started turning to personal blogs and online publications as my way of consuming organic content that I’m actually interested in. I’ve been an avid reader of Who What Wear ever since long before I created my blog, when I got an email from them, inviting me to partner on a couple of upcoming projects, I had a surreal “pinch me” moment. It felt like everything I’ve been building for the past three years was finally being validated, with one of the web’s biggest authorities on fashion reaching out to ME!

What’s even better is that I’m getting to share this experience with you  This Thursday, you can come hang out with me and Who What Wear at Lenox Sq. Mall’s Banana Republc for a #YourLifeStyled VIP shopping event. The first 50 attendees will receive a gift bag, and if you spend $100+, you’ll receive a copy of Who What Wear’s latest publication, The Career Code.

    • Yay! you definitely should, and congrats on your internship! The Career Code book might be just what you need, it has lots of amazing professional tips :)

  • Serena Dokuaa

    Absolutely love the off the shoulder look! I definitely hope to continue to blog and hopefully evolve my blog into something as great as millennielle, but my ultimate dream of myself would me being a Sophia amorouso, Michelle Obama, Catherine the great, Beyoncé and
    Solange mix. Let’s see how this goes ??

  • The Sunday Mode

    Would have loved to have stopped by if I lived nearby, living in Australia always seems so far from everyone! It’s interesting to see how our ideas of what we want to be evolve. I had always wanted to to do something creative with film and television, behind or in front of the camera :)

    • I’ve always wanted to visit Australia!! They say they grass is always greener on the other side, don’t they haha :)

      One of my favorite things about blogging is that it allows us to explore our creative side – so I definitely think a career in television is still something you can work towards, using your blog as an avenue to achieve that goal — get it girl!
