August is here! Hope everyone is enjoying this last month of summer!
I’m excited to announce that I have been chosen to be the fall 2012 Entertainment Editor of Pink and Black Magazine, an online magazine for young women! I’m stoked that I will be able to take on a prominent role (Pretty much the kind I aspire to) and be able to tackle on the topics I love for such a cool and interesting (And very aesthetically pleasing!) publication. I will be brainstorming ideas for the section every month, assign stories, work closely with staff writers and our amazing Editor-in-Chief, Anna, and pitch in my own weekly column. I can’t wait to finally see it all take off!
Please check out the website at pinkandblack-magazine.com, and follow our social networks on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. The Editor’s Blog is a pretty fun read too, and to my understanding, Pink and Black is still looking for Staff Writers. So if you’re a female between the ages of 18-25 and are looking to get some writing experience, this is a great opportunity!
Life’s been pretty crazy. Always lots of writing to do, and more opportunities are still presenting themselves! We’ll talk again soon!
Hope you all are having a lovely June so far! I just wanted to let you all know that you will be seeing more of my film reviews elsewhere! I am now a contributing writer to Medium Rare, a website that highlights the achievements of women and people of color in the film, television, and video game industries. Obviously, this is another exciting opportunity for me to share my love for entertainment, as well as be part of a socially conscious website. Please check out the site at mediumraretv.org, and make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter! Spread the word—it’s a great and meaningful source for entertainment reviews, commentary, and interviews.
Of course, I will still be posting reviews in Karen On, and will even link to my Medium Rare reviews on there. And I will still be writing for Audrey Magazine. In fact, I’ll be covering the New Filipino Cinema program at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts this weekend! You can check out my author page here. It’s been a fun time writing for them!
Look out for my first Medium Rare review very soon, and thanks for keeping up with me! :) See ya on the other side!
PS What do you all think of the new site layout?
For me, the past few months have been nothing but working and playing hard (And spending nights with the San Francisco Giants – yay baseball season!)! My day jobs have been going well, and my internship at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, which wrapped up at the end of last month, was an experience I’ll value forever. As I continue my search to find a full-time job related to my passions and interests, I feel grateful and excited for any opportunities that will allow me to do what I love and develop my craft.
After diving into the PR field at SFIAAFF30, I am going back to writing and will continue to tell stories from the Asian American community with my new gig at Audrey Magazine! Today, I was selected as a Bay Area correspondent for the publication’s website, and will be contributing monthly pieces focusing on happenings, faces, places, and entertainment in the Bay, relevant to the modern Asian American woman. I hope to also be able to produce some rich media for the website. I feel very passionate about this publication and position and I’m incredibly stoked that I’m going to be a part of it!
Not entirely relevant to this new development in my life, but I’m definitely hoping to get back on track with my two blogs, especially now that summer movie season is rolling around! In the meantime, if you ever feel like talking movies, sports, or whatever (And to get updates on my blogs and stories for Audrey once I write them!), I’m always available on Twitter!
And please be sure to visit AudreyMagazine.com and subscribe to email updates, like Audrey on Facebook, and follow Audrey on Twitter! You can also subscribe to their quarterly glossy magazine! As you’ll see right away, they’re pretty darn fabulous!
As always, thank you all for following me on the journey. :)
