FIT is known for the opportunities. Since coming here in August, I’ve had a lot of rewarding memories that I will hold with me forever. Among my many memories within a year, the one that stands out to me the most is being a part of Blush Magazine here on campus. Blush is the beauty and fashion magazine here at FIT. I’ve talked about it in many of my posts for the blog, but it truly is one of my favorite things about this school. I’ve met so many amazing people and had so many opportunities with it. I’m the Senior Photo Editor for the magazine and I cannot recommend a better club to someone who is interested in fashion magazines. Coming from high school to FIT, there are many times where you wish that there was a club or organization that fits who you are in high school. When you come to FIT, there is an abundance of clubs and organizations that are suitable for every single student’s interests. Upon joining Blush, I finally felt like I was at home, which is something that every student deserves to have. What’s a rewarding moment for you that changed everything?
As you may know, one of my favorite parts about FIT is being involved in clubs and activities on campus. Blush Magazine is a fashion and beauty magazine on campus completely created by students, from the articles, to the layout, to the photography. Yesterday evening, the magazine hosted their launch party along with the release of the second issue, the spring 2014 issue. I highly recommend joining Blush to anyone interested in the fashion magazine side of things. It looks great on a resume and you meet some of the greatest people at FIT in Blush. We meet on Tuesdays in B736 during common hour: 1-2pm. Here are some pictures from the launch party! Hope to see you all soon at an upcoming meeting!

Looking back on my first semester, there were definitely good and bad moments. Some of my best moments happened with Blush Magazine; the beauty and fashion magazine here at FIT. I found out about the club at the Club Fair at the beginning of the year. I signed up to be on the email list and I marked down that I’d be interested in doing the photography for the magazine. I have met some incredibly nice, creative, and amazing people within the club that are all very passionate about the same things that I am. Blush Magazine comes out with a new issue seasonally and we published our Winter 2013 issue in December. I am the Senior Photo Editor for the magazine and I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend joining Blush Magazine and any clubs that you are interested in. It can really enrich your FIT experience and you have incredible opportunities to meet some pretty fantastic people.
