Meet Chloe & Hailie-Interns Extraordinaire!

Hey GS&NS readers! January's gone and 2015 started off with a bang. GirlSense & NonSense staff began the year with a search for two interns to help run our social media accounts. We were astounded by the talent, creativity, and intelligence of the applicants, and as a result, wrestled with the decision for a whole month. It was tough. Really tough.

With all of the cover letters read and interviews done, two passionate and inspiring young women came out on the other side. Readers, meet Chloe and Hailie.

From Chloe:


Tell us about yourself.

My age is 15 years, I'm from Kuna, Idaho and have lived here all my life. A few interests I have are drawing, doing makeup, photography, and writing and reading numerous stories.

Why GirlSense & NonSense?

I got involved with GirlSense & NonSense at first because I was excited to have a chance to showcase my artwork, and about the whole idea of a magazine that promotes young women artists. Later, when I found out that GirlSense & NonSense was searching for an intern, I got excited first because managing social media is something that I already love to do, secondly because I've always wanted to work as an intern, thirdly because I wanted to be involved with something that believes in what GirlSense & NonSense does, and lastly because I think that it is a great magazine.

Share a goal and a quote from your favorite movie.

One life goal that I have is that I want to write and get a book published. And I can't say that I have a favorite movie, but even though I know everyone loves quotes from this movie, I really love this quote from The Fault In Our Stars:

"You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world... but you do have some say in who hurts you." (John Green)
From Hailie:


Tell us about yourself.

I am 19 years old. I was born and raised in Nampa, Idaho. I suppose my largest interest in life is forensics; speech and debate has captured my attention for so much of my life. I also recently began fencing and that has quickly become a captivating hobby and a good ice breaker. Besides that, I enjoy shopping for clothes that most think are too old for anyone under 40, reading the news under the assumption someone will talk about with me (an assumption I should have abandoned long ago), and just about any discussion with anyone especially those who are considered outcasts in society.

Why GirlSense & NonSense?

I joined GirlSense and Nonsense because I believe that supporting young female artists is the prerequisite to gaining equality. Art is a form of discourse and discourse will always shape our reality. The discourse that comes from this magazine is an important step in achieving feminist goals.

Share a goal and a quote from your favorite movie.

When I am asked what my future goals are I usually respond with Secretary of State. Most people laugh at me. That only makes me want it more. My quote is from The Graduate:

"It's like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don't make any sense to me. They're being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.”

Hailie and Chloe (and other girls like them) are the reason we started GirlSense & NonSense Magazine and we're so excited to have them on our team! To catch up with them and see what kind of shenanigans they get up to, like our Facebook page (GirlSense & NonSense) and follow us on Instagram and Twitter (@gsandns). The takeover starts next Monday!

Sincerely, Pamela Co-Editor
