Meet Yasmine Yacut, Emma’s marketing and entertainment intern. She’s sweet and creative and such a good fit for the mag.
EMMA Magazine: Where do you go to school?
Yasmine Yacut: Currently a junior at Arizona State University.
EM: What is your major?
YY: Tourism development and management with a minor in business.
EM: What are your long term career goals?
YY: Definitely to be in a field or marketing or special events with a company that I enjoy growing at, and equally important, doing something I feel passionately about. Emma is a great start with the direction of where I want to go, and I guess you can call me that college student that has no idea exactly what she wants to do with her life…but has an idea. You can’t argue with that!
EM: Favorite TV show?
YY: New Girl, for sure! I love how it can just make my day from how witty and hilarious it is. I love the characters, and everything about it keeps me laughing. I mean, if I could be best friends with anyone, it would be Zooey Deschanel. Another favorite show of mine is Game of Thrones. I’m absolutely addicted to it and believe everyone, regardless if you’re a total nerd like me who loves historical times and politics, should get into it.
EM: Do you have any guilty pleasures?
YY: I’m hardcore addicted to Chai Lattes. I’ll have one a day at least. I have probably tried a chai latte from every coffee shop across town, and I love to spice it up with the seasonal pumpkin spice in the fall! Another guilty pleasure of mine is that I love to read, lots. If I am so invested in a book, I will literally cancel plans to finish whatever I’m reading because I’m just that sucked into that world of the story.
EM: What are 3 things in your bag at all times?
YY: My Burt’s Bee’s lip balm, my planner and my headphones.
EM: Favorite place to travel to?
YY: I’m in love with Stockholm, Sweden. The majority of my family lives there so I spend many summers in Stockholm. I love the beautiful weather, the people, fashion and the city so much!
EM: What are your hobbies?
YY: I love to run and work out as well as doing yoga. Endorphins are what get me going through the day! I also love to discover, whether that be new places or new music. I also love to read, travel and be creative by getting crafty with fun projects (thanks Pinterest)!
EM: What do you love about Emma?
YY: I love the team behind it and the idea of Emma. You can tell how passionate they are about Emma and each other and it shows. When I began with Emma I could tell right away this was where I wanted to be: with a team that has such joy to make it all these great things happen. I just adore Emma and could gush all day long about it! It gives me so many opportunities, adventures and experiences that I would have never had the chance to do without it. Emma truly is such an inspirational, creative magazine and I am so excited to see how much more it will grow and what it has to offer everyone.
