Congrats! You've stumbled upon this segment that shall introduce you to thy team of Explore Athens. You've met some of us via instagram blurbs, and there's some video footage of us all rambling about life somewhere, but for now—this is what we're working with.
Hanging out by alotta leaves in my other fave place beside Athens - London!
Please state your name for the record
Grace Ferzely. You can call me Ferz or G-$ or any other name you can think of that might be less lame.
What is your position at EA?
I'm the Style Director. Because self-expression! And sustainable fashion! And local style! You should totally check out our #ATHENSXSTYLE gallery here (sHaMeLeSS pLuG!).
Where are you from?
The v exciting town of Roswell, GA. (AKA the suburbs of ATL where 99% of UGA's population hails from). Hiiii everyone else, I know we kind of suck. I'm sorry!!!! Living in the suburbs is seriously bad for your soul!!!!
Favorite thing about being a part of EA?
Connecting with other members of the community in Athens, for sure. I've already gotten to meet/interview/stalk some of my Athens heroes and #girlbosses through my work with Explore Athens. I can't wait to hear even more stories, adventures, and inside tips from the people who make this town such a ballin' place to live.
A pic of me loving life & wearing one of the best skirts ever from Dynamite.
Social security number?
UR RLY FUNNY ANNIE!!!!!
Numba one fashion tip? (#ATHENSXSTYLE bruh)
Don't give a sh** about what anyone else thinks of your fashion choices! It's none of their business! Fashion is for YOU. As long as you're happy with what you put on in the morning and it makes you feel good, nothing else should matter.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Lol I should know the answer to this question because I graduated from college in the spring but honestly I'm just ~winging it~ for approximately the rest of my life. I hope I never ACTUALLY grow up but when I do take time off from nurturing my inner child, I work in social media, fashion, small-business consulting, and a million other projects (like this, lol). I'll probably keep doing a million different things until I'm an old-woman-child-human-person cause I like staying occupied and my attention span is too short to only work on one thing for too long (thx technology!!!).
Any pressing thoughts you'd like to share with the world wide web?
The most important thing I have to share with the class is that I recently got a puppy and she's the light of my life. I think she already knows more people in Athens than I did at the end of my freshman year. Cool right!!!!
Me and (more importantly) MY DOG!!!!!
Feel free to tweet me, stalk my pix, & scroll through my tumblr. Or not!!! Free will is cool.
