As a design student I am interested in several different areas of design, so I follow several design pages on facebook. There are the Art & Architecture pages based on design in specific countries ranging from Algeria to Tunisia, and more! A few other pages I like to visit are Arkansas Historic Preservation Program and Design Milk. One that has great photographs that catch my interest – Landscape Architects Network – recently held an interview process for volunteer writing positions for their new online magazine, LA Active, so I applied! Through the interview process I was able to write about subjects that I love: organic architecture and sustainability. After a lot of correspondence between myself and the magazine’s creator, I was approved as a volunteer writer. I could not be more excited about it! I can honestly say that writing about design via OldWorldNewGirl has inspired me to write even more, and it was a main influence for even applying for the volunteer writing position.
Until next time, Ci Vediamo! =)
