A Day in the Life of a GL Intern: I Heart Giving Advice!

It might be winter but great stuff's always blossoming at GL!
 

Hey chicas! This is Liz, one of the new interns for GL! You have no idea how excited I am to be working here—I’ve been reading GL since I was in elementary school. The best issue I ever got in the mail had a tell-all guide to kissing. Did I learn how to perfect my skills from reading that article? Absolutely. Is that embarrassing (but still awesome!)? Absolutely. GL never failed to satisfy my needs for celeb news, the latest fashion trends/beauty secrets and most importantly, real life issues.


What goes into the making of GL?

 

I’m a sophomore at the University of Maryland and there’s only one option for my future career: magazine editor. The best way to do this? Interning here, of course! There’s always something to do at the office. Every day, the editors and interns work hard to make the mag and site fabulous. I get to write beauty, health and fashion articles that are posted on the site. I also get to help with research. Today I even got to sit in on an editorial meeting and get the insider perspective on how stories are created, discussed and assigned.


My fave part of the day!
 
 It's always mod, mod, mod!

But if I’m going to be honest, my favorite part of the day is modding! Learning how to deal with the blog was kinda difficult at first but now I’ve really gotten the hang of it. There are literally TONS of comments that come through our system every day and it takes awhile to answer each and every one of them, so hold your horses for a few and you’ll be rewarded by my shining pearls of wisdom (ha, only kidding!). I have two younger sisters that always ask me questions about health, school, fashion...and perhaps the most life-threatening issue (boys!) so answering all of you girls makes me feel like I’ve adopted thousands of new sisters. And hey, I’m a pretty proud sistah! You guys keep me busy and entertained.


And trust me, I haven’t been this excited since I saw James Franco and Taylor Lautner in back-to-back episodes of SNL.


Mmm, fierce.
