As a journalism major I get to meet amazing people and do amazing things in my classes. Well last Friday in my Media Writing class we were assigned to write a profile on another person in class. I was paired with Garrett Cramer. He interviewed me then captured me entirely in 500 words. Thank you again Garrett. I honestly am so honored and grateful. My stylish readers, here is his story below. Enjoy!

A Profile of Taelor Pawnell
            Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes the goals of Taelor (Taylor) Pawnell who aims to one day be the biggest name in fashion.
            Taelor Pawnell currently attends the University of North Texas (UNT) as a junior with a major in advertising and a minor in marketing while utilizing student loans to continue her education. At the blossoming age of 20, Pawnell has the dream of jetting off to New York City to eventually obtain a position in the fashion industry and someday becoming the next Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, but first she doesn’t mind “starting from the bottom being a mail carrier, or a coffee getter, or an assistant. Whatever gets [her] the job in the end.”
            Her interest in fashion began at a younger age when she and her best friend would look at fashion blogs. She ultimately decided that fashion would be her ticket to New York. Taelor decided New York would be her future home due to it being so fast-paced and everyone seems to have a goal. Pawnell currently runs StylishSista.com, a fashion blog dedicated to showcasing her daily outfits as well current events in her life. Taelor certainly has a style of her own, but tries to follow current trends as much as she can.

            “My wallet doesn’t allow me to always buy new trends when they arise, so I have to make due and thrift and set my own trends,” she said.
            She began her college career in the College of Visual Arts and Design as a graphic design pre-major, but ultimately left to be in the Mayborn School of Journalism. With a future career in fashion, one may wonder why Taelor is pursing a degree in journalism with the Mayborn instead of a degree in merchandising with the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism.
            “Journalism is more concrete,” she said. “I love to write … I’ve done it since high school, and it’s easier than starting into a new field.”
            Pawnell is originally from Spring, Texas, a suburb north of Houston on Interstate 45. Transitioning from a suburb to a slightly more bustling college town to the biggest city in the United States is quite a change, but Taelor is ready to leave the Lone Star State behind immediately after graduating. City life seems to suit this fashion blogger with big dreams, but she says she misses the quiet, relaxing feel of her hometown.
            Taelor currently works with Swoop, the student-run advertising and Public Relations agency at UNT where she is currently an art director with UNT Dallas as her first client. If her blog is anything to go by, Taelor Pawnell certainly has an eye for fashion that will definitely help her with the dream of succeeding the great Anna Wintour. Taelor Pawnell, editor-in-chief of Vogue certainly has a nice ring to it.
