Hi! My name is Jennifer Ferrada and I welcome you to my blog. I am so happy you are here. I am 28 years old and from Los Angeles, California, but currently based in San Diego, one of the most beautiful cities I’ve come to known. Feature writing is my passion, and only just recently I’ve been able to get back into it again. I hope to become a successful feature writer of sorts some day – whether it be for a popular food magazine, a travel magazine, or a lifestyle and health magazine. I have a pretty open mind! I would not even mind if I get the opportunity to write for a space news magazine — the universe and astronomy is one of my favorite subjects.
The reason I have decided to become a feature or lifestyle journalist is because ever since I was a young girl, I remembered loving reading CosmoGirl! and reading inspiring, real-life stories or advice columns that empowered young women. I love reading about people’s crazy adventures in Reader’s Digest. I love reading about art, entertainment, travel, nature, food, relationships, animals, inspiring and empowering tales. I was the features editor one semester for my high school newspaper and after high school I went on to write for The Corsair at Santa Monica College for a year.
My story is that I know I am always improving as a writer. Currently, my goal is to become better at food reviews because I am such a foodie in this life! By having this blog, I hope to continue towards my dream and also hopefully one day, helping inspire other writers out there. Most importantly, I genuinely want to get the good word out there — on the interesting and fun things that life has to offer — whether it’s a gnarly seafood restaurant, an amazing cup of coffee, or a band’s new album that you must absolutely check out.
Au Courant is french for “stylish and current.” My goal is to help you become aware about the newest information and trends in lifestyle. I hope you enjoy your time here!
