Creator Profile

I am a 20-year-old journalism junior at the University of Florida (UF). My passions are magazines, writing, music, ideas, silliness, shopping, my future and spending time with friends and family. I analyze EVERYTHING around me, I'm an extremely curious person and I'm constantly inspired. I write lots of things down and look lots of things up. Oh and by the way, I will be interning at CosmoGIRL! magazine this summer!

Inspiration

I made this site in my Communications on the Internet journalism class at UF. We were able to choose our topic, which makes it pretty apparent that I love teen mags, but my inspiration was more than that.

For one, my career goal is to write for and edit or, ideally, start a new teen magazine. Naturally, besides picking apart stacks of teen magazines, I had already done a lot of research on the industry. I found quite a bit of information here and there, but could not find a truly comprehensive site about it, which gave me yet another reason to create this site.

Be it teens searching for a good read, those researching the topic, or fellow teen mag enthusiasts pursuing a career in the industry, I couldn't be the only one in search of a grand tour of teen magazines.
