Hi, I'm Amina!
I currently work at Meredith Corporation as a product reviews writer with the central ecommerce team, where I write shopping content for sites like Real Simple, PEOPLE, InStyle, Travel+Leisure, and Health. (Pitches: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Previously, I worked at Hearst Magazines as an editorial assistant for the Good Housekeeping Institute, and before that I graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in communication studies and journalism.
I've always had a passion for reading, writing, and magazines. Just picture 11-year-old me hoarding every teen magazine issue I could get my hands on — bonus points if they came with pull-out posters of the Jonas Brothers.
Montclair State's School of Communication and Media has given me endless opportunities to grow as a writer and a person. From getting involved in our student-run newspaper, The Montclarion, to mentoring 18 high school students at a workshop about journalism and media, I am forever grateful for all of my experiences there.
Thanks to my eager attitude, passion for storytelling, and a few great professors and mentors, I'm on my way to becoming the content creator I've always dreamed of being.
When I'm not writing, you can probably find me taking fitness classes (usually dance and yoga), trying out new restaurants, or reading the latest Book of the Month.
