YHM Special: Staying Genuine to Yourself with Sarah Jaihe Lee

Committing yourself to following your dreams isn’t an effortless road to travel. There are so many distractions young people can get tangled up in from school to friendships. But, with a plan of action and a driven heart you can make the impossible, possible. YHM’s very own, Sarah Jaihe Lee, breaks down her accomplishments from 2013 and gives us a peek of the year ahead. With a background in English and a craving to share what she loves, this young woman is surprising herself by checking things off her to-do list! YHM: Who is Sarah and what is she all about?  Sarah Jaihe Lee: I’m a senior at Rutgers University majoring in English with a minor in music. I enjoy blogging, cooking, baking, writing and singing. I have been interning with YHM Magazine since June 2013. I was also a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista and wrote for “Fashionista Spotlight”. YHM: In what ways have you accomplished your dreams/goals of 2013? SJL: I have accomplished many things in 2013 but I didn’t do it alone. I believe God was …

Back On The Grind

At one point or another we have all set goals for ourselves. It can be something as simple as telling yourself you are going to wake up early in the morning, to saying you want to lose twenty pounds before a big event. It is no surprise to anyone that students around the world are beginning to set new goals for themselves as a new school year begins. YHM asks student, Shannon Kelly, to share her goals for the upcoming school session. I know every student probably sets the same goals when school starts. They tell themselves they want to get all A’s so they strive to do all of their readings, go to every class, and submit every assignment. Just like other students I want the same things, but now that I am older, newer goals are getting added to that list. My goal is to do my best to receive an internship that will set me up for life once I graduate. I feel that these opportunities are the best ways to allow …

In Charge Of Your Own Time

For some people, summer is a time filled with hot days on the beach, ice cold drinks, and late night swims. For others, summer is occupied with filing papers, fetching coffee, and pitching ideas. As we grow older there is a balance that needs to be found between work and play. In coming Senior, Claudia Surdi, knows all about the all-important concept of time management, so YHM asks her to tell her thoughts on the subject. When summer comes, all you really want to do is throw on a bathing suit and lay out in the sun like many summers before. However, becoming an adult changes that. I have learned that this is the time where we need to get our priorities straight. During the day we get used to being inside an office setting and doing “grown up” things because we know that in the long run it will improve our futures. When the nights come, this is when we get to let loose and do all the things that we love to do …

Strong Independent Women

In honor of July 4th YHM is paying tribute to independence! In such a competitive world, people must take their fate into their own hands in order to achieve greatness and success. Being independent is especially important in Corporate America. More and more, employees are looking for candidates who possess independence that will help their companies grow. Samantha Rodriguez, marketing member for Boston based radio station Mix 104.1 and intern at WGBH understands this concept perfectly. YHM: How important is independence in the work place? In the modern day work force it has become increasingly more important for young women to be independent. I have learned that the easiest way to establish independence in the workplace is to take ownership and responsibility over the projects you are assigned. Independence can also be developed when you make the effort to take leadership positions when working in groups. I believe that independence in the work place has the power to make me feel confident in my abilities. I appreciate the fact that my bosses and co-workers trust me …
