    Hi bSmart women who are writers of blog posts, novels, magazines, and all types of creative content!

    Stephanie Harris is our Smart Woman College student feature this month and she's here to answer your questions about transitioning from student to professional writer!

    Stephanie is a senior at the University of Michigan with a focus in Communication Studies and English Literature. She's passionate about making a positive impact through storytelling, content creation, and integrated marketing communications. With internship experience at both local and national publications, she brings a nuanced perspective to the fields of journalism and marketing, one that incorporates both an extensive knowledge of media studies and a strong command of the written word. As a Summer 2018 ASME (American Society of Magazine Editors) intern at Time Inc.'s Real Simple magazine, Stephanie is happy to offer advice about interning in New York and navigating the magazine journalism world, as well as using editorial experience to transition to a business role.

    I'll kick things off with a few questions for Stephanie:

    1) What is your perspective on the future of print vs. digital editorial?
    2) How can college women use their love of writing to create a career?
    3) How can bSmart women become better writers / network with writers / publishers / agents?
    4) How will you use your talent for writing to serve the world?

    All bSmart women are welcome to ask Stephanie their questions! In particular, I'm tagging:

    Chloe Brown Caitland Winsett Hailey Peters Jamie Celeste Abbi Kirollos Sofia Rosa Bianchi Amanda Wowk Ashley Tolman Charlotte Kasper Sara Klimek Amanda Alex Wieser Isabella Ortiz Madeline Howard Meghan Loftus Molly Goodspeed Nina Godridge Allison Donlan Arielle Westcott Lauren Benning Brooke Kushwaha Bridgette Ramirez Mary-Catherine Canavan Caroline Ghisolfi Laney Byler Deanne Swaringen Deanne Swaringen Danielle Gabriel Emily Forbes Elsie Grathwohl Haley Saffren Hannah Young Jasmin Boyce Joanna Gaden Angelina Eimannsberger Jisu Choi Julia Kell Katie Feuerstein Kelly Lindenau Margo Rometo Morgan Hipps Nefertari Bilal Nuri Matthew Olivia Mills Orliana Morag Madeline Peterson Rikki Weiss Regan Lavin Susie Poore Teagan Monaco Therese Boccini Zoë Kaplan

    Hey everyone!

    This week we’re talking about empowerment! Below I’ve listed five empowering women I think you should know about.

    Malala Yousafzai:
    Not only is she the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, but she is also an incredible feminist symbol for young girls everywhere. She turned a traumatizing moment in her life into an event that would change history.

    Rose McGowan:
    This actress is continuously at the forefront of the feminist movement and constantly shuts down sexist remarks. Her success in the film industry has given her the perfect stage to discuss the issues that are continuing to repress women

    Gloria Steinem:
    Steinem is 83 years old and she’s still advocating for women’s rights. Being a leader of the feminist movement in America during the 1960s, she’s been working to advance women’s rights since.

    Maya Angelou:
    She was a civil rights activist and feminist that women and girls will be able to look up to for many more decades to come.

    Ellen DeGeneres:
    Ellen has empowered millions of people around the world through her career and philanthropic duties.

    Obviously, there are many more empowering women we should know about! Comment below empowering women you feel we should know about using #Empowerment or #WomenYouShouldKnow

  • Hey everyone!

    Sometimes the idea of finding your purpose can feel daunting, it's easy to become overwhelmed with such an important term. One way to help combat this feeling is through a technique called mind mapping.

    How to mind map:
    Start off with writing the word purpose in the middle.
    Write down the next word that comes to mind when you think of purpose.
    Keep building upon what you have written down.
    No pressure to write what down what you think you should write. Just jot down what comes to mind!
    From there a bSmart woman will know ‘why’ as well as ‘what’ she is creating for herself and for others.

    Comment below with the first word you used to branch off from purpose and use the hashtags #purpose #mindmapping!

    Hi bSmart ladies!

    We all know finding a job or internship can be extremely stressful, but what about the stress we feel when we have to decide if we want to accept a job or internship. We are faced with big decisions that will most likely have a huge impact on our lives! Here are some questions to ask yourself first, before accepting a job/internship once you've been offered one.

    1. What will I specifically be doing?
    2. What benefits are there outside of money?
    3. What opportunities are there for moving up within the company? How much do I value that?
    4. What are former employees doing now?
    5. Do I truly want this?

    Comment below with any more questions or advice!
