“Whatever you want in life, other people are going to want it too. Believe in yourself enough to accept the idea that you have an equal right to it.” – Diane Sawyer

Yeah, you really want that internship at W. And so do a million other girls in your shoes. So what? You gonna let a little competition scare you? You worked this hard for your 4.0 GPA and now you are afraid of a little competition? Let it fuel you..and ignite your passion to do whatever it takes to make it happen. Be the one they remember.

  • Write your brand story and publish your digital portfolio.
  • Shamelessly network with everyone you know in NYC that may possible know someone close to that internship or people that know people close to the internship.
  • Design your own line via Pinterest and develop a guerrilla marketing plan to show it off.
  • Create your own digital magazine full of relevant editorial for today’s fashionista. Do not be afraid to showcase your point of view.

And so on, and so on. There are a thousand other ideas like these that will put you out in front of the pack. Do me a favor, and don’t just apply online with a boring old cover letter. Anyone can do that…do you think they want just ANYONE? Nope. They want bold and beautiful. “Hope dancing in stiletto heels”…..as Michael Rappaport stated in Beautiful Girls circa 1996.

If you want something different than you gotta do something different.

Make me proud. Go forth, be bold, slay dragons. If you need help, text “girlpower” to 72000…SuperGirlls to the rescue.
