From Kevin Huynh: My student newsroom gave me amazing opportunities

Name: Kevin Huynh

College publication: Sparks Magazine UF

Where I am now: Fashion Assistant at the Wall Street Journal/WSJ Magazine

My time as the Style Director at Sparks Magazine, a role I pitched and created for myself, really allowed me to both see my creativity into fruition but also gave me an amazing opportunity to work with others as well. The student newsroom is an environment that allows individuals to truly express themselves and gain invaluable experiences with their peers. Those who are willing to put in the work at a student magazine/newsroom are the same people who make strides in their career goals. I was able to use my previous internship experience and position at Sparks magazine to get my foot in the door of the fashion industry. First as an freelancer with the Senior Editor-at-Large of Glamour, then as the Accessories Assistant at Interview and finally as the Fashion Assistant at the Wall Street Journal.
