Hello! My name is Courtney Mally and I am a staff writer for the Fashion Journalist Club. Currently I am a freshman at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication studying broadcast journalism. Fashion has always been a priority to me and played a big part in my life. I was almost late on my first day of kindergarten because I didn’t have the “right belt” for my outfit!
As I have grown up, my passion has only grown with me. Everyday my style personality changes a littlebit, and that is what I love most about fashion! You can be whomever you want, whenever you want. Part of the reason I am pursuing a career in journalism is, I want share my knowledge of beauty products and fashion trends to help people feel confident in their own personal style. So, I write my pieces for you guys, the readers. Please enjoy!
Hey there! My name is Maddy Ryan and I am a staff writer for The Chic Daily. I am currently a freshman at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication studying Journalism/Public Relations. If you ask me on any random day what I want to be when I grow up, my answer will change every time. I have always had a desire to go into the world of fashion but I know that whether I make it in the world of fashion or not, I will always have my passion for it.
I dress not to impress, but to be remembered. My style is unique compared to most. I would not classify myself into one specific style category because every day is an opportunity to change your presence and why not do it through your wardrobe?!
Hi The Chic Daily readers! I’m Savanah Yaghsezian and I’m a part of ASU’s Fashion Journalist Club because I hope to write for fashion magazines/websites and maybe even run my own fashion/lifestyle blog one day. I’m really inspired by celebrities like Blake Lively and Kiernan Shipka (I’ll be the first to admit a 15-year-old has better style than I do). However, I also enjoy looking at Bill Cunningham’s street style photographs in the New York Times. My personal style jumps around a lot, but currently much of my clothing is reminiscent of the 1990’s (I also hear 70’s style is coming back, so I might have to give that a shot). You’ll probably see me writing about fashion tips and my favorite trends.
