Hey, hey! The name’s Karen Hor, and I’ve been told my middle name should be “Isa”—but I represent nothing of that concoction. I’ve been Jerking for over a year now in both print and online first as a research editor and travel columnist (Nearby Nooks), then moved up as managing editor, and am now assistant features editor for the magazine—as well as, your summer TRIM and LIVE blogger! I got my style swag and life revelations on 24/7, so it’s my pleasure to give you a piece of my mind.

Year: Senior

Major: Magazine Journalism; Economics and Chinese Studies minor; concentration in fashion and beauty media/communications

Hometown: Lower East Side Manhattan, New York (now a gentrified restoration of what was once the hood)

Why I picked TRIM: My mother is a seamstress, and has been since she stepped foot on American soil to raise three little beautiful Asian baby girls. Fashion is in my blood. I’ll also be covering beauty industry news.

Why I picked LIVE: For a petite young lady, I’ve been through a lot of shit. And I’m sure we all have. I never regret the things I do and I take pleasure in small encounters. My experiences in life are why I aspire to be a writer, journalist, and editor—the best, maybe. Yes. So let me share my goods.

I’m a Twitter fanatic and cover fashion, beauty, and media industry news. So, any potential followers who give a crap can click “follow” @karenhor, where I also tweet what good tunes are in my iPod and selective moments of my life—I know, so exciting. I also have a Tumblr, titled “Swank Rendition,” where I post inspirational photos, quotes, and articles. So, any potential followers who give a crap can click “follow” on  Email me at if you think I’m completely awesome or completely lame. I like criticism and suggestions on my work, cool? OK.
