Hey, everyone! I’m pleased to announce that I’m one of 25 new Brand Ambassadors for UChic.com! I actually worked with UChic back in October, when they launched their first product as part of their “Fashion with a Purpose” line, a laptop case called “the Gracie.” UChic is a unique startup; it’s philanthropic! Their core mission is to help women in high school and in college fund their dreams. By purchasing products like the Gracie case, you can help girls fulfill their aspirations. They provide scholarships to exceptional women, which you can apply for here. In addition, UChic has a blog full of key advice, and they are in the process of publishing the 5th edition of their best selling book, the College Girl’s Guide to Everything.
As a Brand Ambassador, I’m responsible for spreading the word about UChic as well as starting important conversations for young women. To follow my journey through this internship, follow my Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts. Our first assignment as Brand Ambassadors is to write what advice we would give to our past selves, so look out for my essay on said social media accounts within the next few days! In the meantime, to check out what my fellow BAs are sharing, search for the hashtag #IWishIKnew. I’m so excited to be working with such an amazing company, and I can’t wait to share everything with you guys as well!
