Some kids dream of growing up and becoming President of the United States, or going into outer space. I, on the other hand, always dreamed of becoming a writer. That’s why I started my very own lifestyle magazine in first grade. That publication has folded, but it didn’t deter me from pursuing journalism. Since then I’ve written for NYLON, New York, Teen Vogue, ELLE.com, Glamour, Marie Claire, SELF, New York Post, USA TODAY, CNTraveler.com, Time Out New York, Health.com, Stylebistro.com, NYLON Guys, BBC Travel, Latina, Organic Spa Magazine, and BUST, among others. I’m a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and now call Brooklyn home. Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @celiashatzman.
