Ariana is a co-founder and the outfit section editor of The Fit Magazine, an online publication founded by Lehigh University women to help college students everywhere find their perfect fit to become their best selves. It focuses on fashion, beauty, fitness and college lifestyle content
Her role is to make executive decisions, develop the creative direction, design and manage the website, hire and manage staff, help manage social media and edit stories for the sections with primary focus on the outfit section. This includes writing headlines and SEO data, budgeting and editing writers’ stories.
The magazine began as a quarantine passion project and grew immensely in a very short period of time. In the first month, over 40 staff members were hired, expanding the magazine’s reach to 11 campuses, including internationally.
Most notably, launching this magazine in May 2020, a time when society reinforced the importance of using people’s voices, taught Ariana and the other founders more than they could have imagined. In addition to their typical content, they use their platform to advocate for change and progress.
