Written by Rachel Stankus
Hello! My name is Rachel Stankus and I am one of the many bloggers for POLISHED. I am a freshman at Lasell College in Massachusetts, but I grew up in New York. I am a lover of ice cream, chai tea lattes, dogs, and Chipotle.
I am currently undeclared, but I am quite positive I will declare my major as communications with a double concentration in radio and video production and journalism. Writing for POLISHED has helped me realize that I would love to work for a magazine one day, hopefully my own. I also enjoy filming and editing videos, it’s a huge passion of mine. I’ve loved to make videos ever since I was younger. Eventually, I would love to incorporate both concentrations together.
My first semester at Lasell I became a part of the social media team for POLISHED. I wanted to become more involved with the magazine, so second semester I joined the blog! I enjoy writing pieces on fashion, specifically look books. I love putting pieces together to create an outfit.
To me, fashion is anything that makes you feel confident. If you feel good in what you’re wearing, you feel like you can accomplish anything. I wouldn’t describe my personal style in any specific way, but I do love statement pieces. I love wearing cardigans, (faux) fur vests, chokers, bodysuits, and booties. They’re all cute, yet comfortable.
I love traveling, so I am excited to study abroad while I’m here at school. When I’m not binge-watching Netflix, specifically Scandal or 90210, I’m with friends exploring Boston and finding good food to eat. Yoga and meditation also play a big part in my life, they’re perfect to do after a long day. Just like everyone else, I love to listen to good music. I’m currently loving LANY and Jon Bellion.
I am very excited to stay with POLISHED during my time at Lasell and I know this opportunity will continue to improve my skills as a writer.
