TWELV Magazine
247 38th Street, SUITE 612
Manhattan, NY
To Whom It May Concern:

Please consider me as an applicant for your Editorial/ Writer Assistant internship
that was posted on internships.com. As a second year Writing & Rhetoric major with
minors in Leadership Studies and Fashion Merchandising & Design at the University
of Rhode Island, I find this position fits my experience, interests, and career goals.
After looking into your company and assessing the requirements for this position, I
would like to be considered to be added to your team.

Within the last year, I have worked as a runway intern for StyleWeek Northeast,
written for CollegeFashionista.com for two consecutive semesters, taken over as
President of the Fashion Merchandising Society, been a photographer/ social media
intern for HerCampus, and become a freshman mentor, all while holding
membership to other organizations such as PRSSA and maintaining a job. I am a
very well organized individual who never fails to get things done on time and
correctly without losing my creative spark. I have managed to stay involved and
work towards the goal of working the fashion industry through the form of writing
or editing for a magazine. I believe that this opportunity to be an assistant could
transform my career dreams into realities.

As a sophomore, I have taken on many large responsibilities on and off campus that
have pushed me to become a strong willed and driven individual. I enjoy writing and
see myself as a strong communicator, presenter and leader. My career goals are to
continue in the path of my chosen major and eventually find myself utilizing what I
have learned in New York City, primarily in the fields of fashion, pop culture and
entertainment.

As a student studying fashion and writing in pursuit of a Bachelors degree, I would
be honored to work as an intern for you this coming summer. My availability is
from June 1st until the first week of August and I plan to relocate to NYC if hired. If
you find me fit for the position, I can be reached by email at
kaylan_burns@my.uri.edu or by telephone at 732- 284-0481. I look forward to
hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Kaylan Burns
