Have you ever heard of an up-and-coming journalist by the name of Adriana Georgiades? If you haven’t heard, then you’re definitely not alone. This 23-year-old woman has won the AAU’s Fashion Journalism Scholarship Contest for 2018. The topic of choice was to write about how social media is impacting the fashion industry. There were plenty of entries that were submitted, but there was only one that could be the winner. Georgiades was the actual winner in the end as she proposed an in-depth report on the subject. This young woman now has a chance to intern at the affluent TRC Marketing company as well as use a $1,500 scholarship for furthering her education in fashion journalism.

Georgiades grew-up in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has always had a love for fashion, but she didn’t have the opportunity to pursue it by attending Rhodes University. While studying at this fine institution, Georgiades specialized in sports blogging, and she was the editor of her school’s newspaper. After attaining a B.A. Journalism, she would move across the pond to the US.

The Academy of Art University has welcomed her with open arms. Georgiades fits in perfectly with the American culture, and she sports a 3.9 GPA. Bigger and better things are on the horizon for this budding journalist and the Academy of Art University gives her full-support.


Wessex Conferences Supplement the Institute’s Ongoing Drive to Address Current Issues

To supplement the programs offered at the Wessex Institute of Technology, the facility holds several conferences throughout the year. The conferences are part of the Institute’s ongoing mission to provide a link between the professional and academic worlds.

Each conference addresses an issue of current concern, which could encompass anything from global warming to urban development. While the Institute itself is located in the UK’s scenic region of Southampton, the conferences are often held in cities located in countries such as Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic.

Visitors to the Wessex Institute of Technology’s website will be able to view the scheduled topics for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The 2017 conferences are scheduled to begin in mid-April with topics covering subjects such as the Repair and Maintenance of Heritage Architecture and Sustainable Development and Planning. Many of the topics discussed in the 2017 conferences are continuations of issues from previous years.
