The Man From Essence

"ESSENCE is the premiere lifestyle, fashion and beauty magazine for African-American women. With its motivating message, intimate girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone, compelling and engaging editorial lineup and vibrant and modern design, ESSENCE is the definitive voice of today's dynamic African-American woman. ESSENCE speaks directly to a Black woman's spirit, her heart and her unique concerns. Every month African-American women rely on ESSENCE for editorial content designed to help them move their lives forward personally, professionally, intellectually and spiritually. Sections such as Work & Wealth, Healthy Living, and Looks We Love cover topics that focus on career and finance, health and lifestyle, and fashion and beauty and share an intimate connection with readers."

Last week Monday, I had the fantabulous opportunity to escort Mr. Edward Lewis, yes THE Edward Lewis, around my campus for his book signing tour. As the Public Relations/ Social Media Director for my school's magazine organization Cover2Cover , I was notified of his visit before other students and jumped on the chance to be with him. His day was filled with a variety of events but he still took the time to talk to me and answer any question I threw his way. I learned a lot from Mr. Lewis and am very thankful that I had the chance to meet him and speak with him about the world of magazine publications. I have posted the pictures I took of and with Mr. Lewis below. Hope you enjoy!
