Day in the Life of Candy
Some weeks ago I got a message from Young Star’s editor Raymond. He asked if I’d be interested to be in a feature on young people who have helped work on the big September issues that will hit newsstands in a couple of days.
When I heard my friend MJ from Preview also got the message, I joked with her, “Who can resist a day’s worth of broadsheet fame?!” (But, really?!)
For any of you guys who are interested to try your hand at working for a magazine, or if it has been your dream job forever, do check out the article and see what me and my fellow magazine young’uns had to say about our “rock all day and party all night,” “crazy” jobs.

Here are a few things from my bit:
On whether this is something I’ve always wanted: “When I was much younger I wanted to be a painter or a pop star. I’m not talented enough though for those kinds of careers.”
On what a busy day is like: “The days leading up to a fashion shoot are always the busiest. Aside from the main job styling the shoot, I have to make sure the logistical details come together smoothly, with zero to very, very few hiccups.”
On how I see Candy in 10 years: “Candy is great where it is now. Hopefully it’s the same fun and sincere magazine the Candy readers have come to love.”
On what I love about my job: “The nature of the job itself suits me very well. As soon as one shoot starts, I’m already thinking about the one for next month. I love that it forces me to always set my sights on the future, and move on.”
On my ‘editor peg’: “Vogue’s Tonne Goodman. She’s a hippie and a minimalist at heart.”
Thanks, Young Star!
