My name's Vanessa DiMaggio, and I am a journalism major at the University of Florida. My expected graduation date is August, 2009.
My dream job is working for a major fashion magazine in New York City. I would love to work for Elle, Cosmo or Vogue. I would also like to work for a teen magazine, such as CosmoGirl or Seventeen. I believe it's very impotant for the media to set a positive self-image for teen girls, and both of these publications have taken the steps toward doing that. My ultimate goal is to become editor-in-chief for any one of these major publications.
I plan to intern for a magazine this summer and study abroad in Italy next summer. I will graduate that summer and hopefully move to New York City where I will have another internship for the fall. In the spring of 2009, I hope to begin my graduate work. Ideally, I would like to attend Columbia University for my master's degree.
