Career

US Weekly Magazine

Freelance Stringer

Journalism has always been my passion in life and when the opportunity arose to conduct some yellow journalism I was very quick to take it. I felt that this was an excellent chance to experience the dirtier part of journalism.

My first assignment was a Jennifer Aniston story. This involved heavy observation, recording unauthorized material, transcribing the information, condensing it and making it available to print immediately to beat other publications. I was successful and have since done occasional work similar to this instance for US Weekly.

A Hit of Sarah

Founder

I began A Hit of Sarah, a fashion blog, when I was just sixteen years old. Once garnering attention from readers internationally I soon realized that this could be more than just a blog but a way to make some income and network with others in the fashion industry. A lot of the work I've done until this moment is experience I have been able to utilize in every position I've had thus far.

This includes:

• Sell ad space and work with advertisers to target the same demographic as A Hit of Sarah readers

• Collaborate and work closely with public relations firms, designers, brand leaders and other fashion industry professionals

• Produce unique content that is also geared towards a specific audience

• Imagine original editorials which includes finding the proper model, editorial setting and story, photographing and editing.

• Conduct research on well educated opinion pieces

• Utilize social media to build an audience and interact with readers

• Network with industry professionals and write at a professional level

My blog has also enabled me to attend many industry events and connect with numerous influential editors, stylists, photographers, writers,industry leaders and professionals. Some of these events include:

• New York Fashion

• London Fashion Week and London Fashion Weekend

• Tel-Aviv Fashion Week and an Israel sponsored press trip throughout the country
