The second installation of Q&A posts featuring the women behind EMMA is here! This week we give you EMMA intern Alejandra Armstrong!
EMMA Magazine: Where do you go to school?
Alejandra Armstrong: I am a proud Sun Devil.
EM: Your major?
AA: I am studying Journalism with a focus in print at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU.
EM: What are your long term career goals?
AA: I would love to be a celebrated columnist or start my own magazine (I can only hope to create something as amazing as EMMA 😉 ). One dream of mine is to travel the world and spend my time and efforts giving to people in need. If I can somehow incorporate my love for writing in that, that would be ideal!
EM: Favorite TV show?
AA: I am sucker for musicals, so I love Smash. I don’t have too much time to watch TV, but in my spare time I like to revisit Arrested Development episodes. I cannot wait for the Netflix season airing in May!
EM: Guilty pleasure?
AA: Chocolates. Ice Cream. Cupcakes. Milk Shakes. Anything sweet! 🙂
EM: What are 3 things in your bag at all times?
AA: Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil, notepad and pen, and a voice recorder- gotta be ready for impromptu interviews!
EM: Any hobbies?
AA: Dance! I’ve been dancing since I was 4 years old. I also got into yoga this last summer. And I am really trying to up my photography game.
EM: What do you love about EMMA?
AA: I love how much I am learning from interning with EMMA Magazine! I am seriously the luckiest intern because I have so much fun. EMMA’s message to its readers is just as beautiful as the aesthetics of the pages. EMMA encourages readers to go out, explore, and create, and I think that’s amazing!
