Internship Recap: NYLON Magazine

Let me just start by saying how much I have always loved this magazine. This was my number one choice when I applied for internships and I still can’t believe it ended up being the one I got. I interned in digital editorial and I had amazing bosses, an awesome work space, and overall just a hella good experience. That’s not to say it wasn’t … Continue reading Internship Recap: NYLON Magazine
