and now..... what do I have for you?..........A fashion blogger, fashion editor and a fencer athlete all in one from Oregon!
Name: Laura Hunter-Thomas
Occupation /s :
for The Printed Blog and
Stock Market Research Analyst
Age: 19 y/o
This talented fashion editor is not only a writer and a fashionista but has a talent for singing and dancing.
Even she says she is not really smart, she is just hard working and aims to have good grades!
Most of all she is a fencer who has competed all over Europe (Russia, Italy, Hungary, UK,
Germany, France) and the US, and won quite a few medals and trophies
(Laura said, "I have a dedicated bookshelf for them at home, which never gets dusted!" ).
(Taken at a tournament called 'The Battle in Seattle' in Seattle)
Her best experience at a fencing tournament is so hard to define - she had so many! But she would probably say beating a Ukranian Olympic Team Gold Medallist in a tournament was pretty special! She started fencing training at age 11 so it's been a little while in the making! Don't get her wrong though, she said
"I've still got so far to go!"
(with her fencing pupil after he won a medal)
This 19 year old girl doesn't have a college education yet, but wait...
She is applying to Harvard University after taking a year out to focus on fencing!
" I'd like to major in English and minor in something totally different like business management. I'm then planning on taking a two-year course in Fashion Marketing from Parsons - and then maybe I'll get a job!"
In fashion, she has a great collection of accessories: designer silk scarves (my favourite is by Michael Van Der Ham), bags, and shoes, especially - She has so many different styles! Her favourites are a pair of Jeffrey Campbells.
