FAB part of your job: Giving me the chance to do what I love best... Nothing feels imposed, every task is a stimulant.
Least liked but still FAB part of your job: The 'behind the scene' process of the magazine, but when the result comes out... that's what I call the FAB part of my job.
Aspirations/goals: Being the best I can be in fashion, striving constantly to be on top of my game, and someday become a fashion editor.

Best piece of advice you can offer: It’s easier to be yourself, wear what suits you, dress well and learn how to edit... Simplicity is divine!

Your style in a nutshell: Sometimes conservative, sometimes practical - all depends on mood.
Pet peeve: Dry people who push to be funny.
