Hey babes! This past weekend I was able to have an amazing experience working The Letter Event in Atlanta, GA.
I vlogged the whole day so if you want to watch my day and read along, CLICK HERE.
I’ve worked for The Letter for almost 2 years now! I’ve worn every hat too. From social media manager, writer, YouTube manager to PR Intern I was there alongside Lauren, Founder and Editor In Chief (pictured second from left), for so much of the journey that being part of The Letter’s first ever event was such a rewarding experience.
The event was to celebrate the magazine’s 3rd year and to reach more readers. It was Saturday, August 11th at the store Citizens Supply in Ponce City Market––a huge, urban shopping center. Here is what I learned working all day at the event.
First off, I learned that bringing people together over a common cause creates community.
Even though the event only lasted 3 hours, those 3 hours created a strong connection amongst fellow calligraphy lovers, letter writers, and those wanting to hop in for a picture. The common cause “Inspiring Everyday Women” not only brought together those who attended the event, but also The Letter Team. Four women who had never met in person but bonded over late night FaceTime meetings and emails, finally came together to create something beautiful. And with that, community was built within visitors, visitors and the magazine, and the ladies behind it all.
Secondly, I learned that some flower crowns, Pinterest quotes, and a gorgeous backdrop can make any gal feel like Beyonce.
I worked the photo booth area and it was so fun to watch all the different women grab a sign and flower crown and hop in front the of gorgeous backdrop with their bests gals! The art of a great Instagram picture really brings people together.
Lastly, I learned that dedication pays off in the end. Lauren Taylor and the team worked incredibly hard on this event. I think preparations started all the way back in March! Even though not the whole team could be there, it was amazing to see all the persistence pay off in person. From the giveaways to the Snail Mail station to the smiles on visitor’s faces, everything was a huge success and I am so thankful I was able to attend.
This experience made me excited for the future too. The endless possibilities that can happen with The Letter and my own personal brand. I can’t wait to see what God has in store, and I can’t wait for you guys to see too.
Keep Creating, Babe!
