Can you please tell me a little bit about yourself? (briefly about what you are studying etc) My name is Katharina Rhomberg and I am originally from Austria. My family lives in the very west of the country in a town closely surrounded by the Alpes. I am 22 years old and have just finished my second year at Westminster Business School studying Business Management with the International Business pathway. I have just returned from my semester abroad at the Paris School of Business in the heart of the city of love. Anyway, I love living in London, it is just one of the best things that I have experienced in my life so far. Being given the opportunity to study in such a multicultural city and sharing a classroom with people from all over the world has fulfilled one of my dreams. I am a very ambitious person, which is why I thought studying Business is a good idea for my future career. I have big dreams and I tend to set my goals quite high, which sometimes makes me struggle with myself but it also pushes me to become the best version of myself every day. The story of how I ended up in London is actually quite funny because it wasn't really in my plans at all. (first to Miami Beach and then to Chicago). I fell in love with the people there and the country and when it was time to go, I knew I would go back there to pursue my studies abroad. I really didn't enjoy myself at all, I missed speaking English and I didn't feel myself there, so I took the SATs and plenty of other tests in order to be able to move back overseas for my studies. However, it turned out that time was tight and I couldn't get through with paper work and Visa, so I needed a plan B and decided "why not London?". I had heard from a Norwegian friend from Miami that she studied in Kingston upon Thames and loved it, so I thought I would give it a shot. I planned on staying a year, but I just enjoyed myself so much at Westminster and in London that I decided to stay. Westminster is a good school that gives me the opportunity to study in the heart of one of the most amazing cities in the world and meet people from all over the planet every day. Combining this with a good course, and I was hooked. I really really like my life in London and I think studying at Westminster and therefore moving to London has changed my life 180 degrees and made me a happier person. is still there and I still plan on moving there and pursuing my career over there after my studies. I had heard from a friend that she did an internship in New York City the summer before I moved to London and she just loved it. So she gave me all the information of the program she participated in and I decided to apply a couple of weeks later. I have a great passion for all things fashion and beauty and I would love to combine this passion with my interest for business in my future career. Soon after applying, I got accepted in the program and before I knew my coordinator had gotten me an interview with Donna Karan to intern for them over the summer. I moved to NYC for the summer of 2012, I guess I don't need to say that I was the happiest girl alive. The internship was fun, I learned a lot about the fashion industry, met amazing people and got a great insight into the happenings behind closed doors in an internationally successful haute couture designer company. It was great and I loved it. How was living and working in the NYC? What were the main challenges you have faced? I think it is really important to mention that living in NYC is not for everyone. I know this sounds probably stupid to some, but I am telling you it is very very stressful. If you are someone who has hard time coping with stress and a "fast paced life" then NYC will not be the city for you. However, I am just a bit different. Where others take a weekend off to escape the city struggles and relax on the countryside, the fastness of the city and the hectic way of life calm me down. I have always preferred being busy over just relaxing, doing nothing is just not my thing and never has been. So there you go, New York City is just what I was looking for. I loved living there and I definitely consider moving there after graduation. I think that the most important thing is to know what you want and to see things realistically. Working in NYC is not like working in London or any of the cities I have lived in before. It is definitely more stressful, extremely hectic, loud and it is a challenge to find a calm place in this town. Rush hour in the morning on the way to work is definitely something to get used to and London rush hour is nothing compared to it. Of course, there have been times when rush hour drives you insane and the missing AC in the subway stations plays with your nerves but New York has so much to offer, just like London it is such an entertaining city. No wonder people call it "the city that never sleeps". Personally, I have definitely fallen in love with the concrete jungle though. Can you please tell us about the process of securing an internship during your studies? I am not going to lie, it was quite tough to juggle securing my internship during my studies and I was stressed out a lot in the first two months of the second semester, but at the end it was totally worth it. I just tried to make myself a schedule of when to do what. I know it sounds old school but I just wrote myself little to do lists of what I needed to finish up and then ticked off all the things that had been done. I think schoolwork definitely comes first and then whenever I was done with my coursework/exam preparations/group projects I dedicated as much time as needed to what needed to be completed before my departure. Honestly though, having a coordinator that guided me through the whole process really helped me a lot. Everyone is talking about employability skills what do you think is the best way to increase your employability skills during your academic studies? I think it is really important to make yourself as attractive as possible to the employer. I have also taken an internship class at NYU (New York University) while I was working at Donna Karan and they always stressed how important it was to get as much experience and practice as possible before you enter the working world. I am not saying that an internship is what you need to do before graduation, but it definitely helps you get more confident and also leaves a good impression with the employer. However, there are other things you can do, for example being an active member in a school society is something many employers like to see on a CV. I have learned that it is just really important to be active, you know, just get involved because at the end of the day this is really what any employer wants to see. Every employer searches for the best people they can get, the harder and better you work, the better it is for them and in the end for you. So, extra curricular activities are never a fail I would say. As a fellow student what would you recommend other students in the Westminster Business School? Really, what I just mentioned in the previous question is what I would suggest. Just be active and show them what you've got. Everyone has something they are especially good at and there is no harm in showing that. Also, if you are good at something or you think you are good at something, don't be shy to try it out and never be afraid to show/tell others about it. Networking is how you get to what you want, that is my 1 rule. Meet as many people in your field as you possibly can and don't be afraid to tell them about your strengths because in today's world, nothing happens without networking, it is SO SO important. We all know that student life is hard work! How do you manage to balance your studies with all the extra curricular activities ? I think it's just really important to try and find a time for everything you enjoy doing besides school because it balances you out and makes you enjoy your studies more. We often fall into a routine where we just do what we have to do and we forget about the things we really enjoy doing. I would say put schoolwork first, but don't forget about the things you enjoy doing and your social life because that's what balances you out and keeps you motivated, focused and happy. If time gets tight, I personally try to make a schedule and stick to it as much as I can, but don't get frustrated if it sometimes doesn't work because we are all still humans. Just try to see that you get the most important things done before you take time off to relax and enjoy yourself, BUT don't ever forget to do exactly that, RELAX AND ENJOY YOURSELF because as I said that's what keeps you going. What are the main lessons you have learnt by being so involved during your studies? One of the most important things I have learnt is to stay focused on what I really want. Being involved during my studies helps me to concentrate on pursuing what I really want to do later on. I feel that a lot of people are lost during their studies when it comes to deciding about what they'd like to do after graduation. And I am not saying that I know 100% what awaits me but I have found my path/my field of interest or whatever you want to call it. I know what I enjoy doing and I want to combine it with something that challenges me. The fashion and beauty world is something that I have always been enjoying and that has always been in some way a big part of my life ever since I was a little girl. However, it was important to me that I find something that challenges me, studying business and looking to pursue a career in the fast pace business industry does exactly that for me. But believe me, it wasn't always easy and I have definitely also hit rock bottom before, where I was super desperate and didn't know what my goal in life was. I have learned so much from this experience. It has taught me that life just doesn't always go our way and that we need exactly those experiences to test out our limits and find out what we really want to do with our lives. I would say, if you are desperate and lost at the moment, it is normal and it helps you to understand where you want your life to go. Sometimes, we just need to learn what we don't like in order to find what we really want to do. Just don't let a rough patch get the best of you and keep going no matter what. I am now more involved during my studies because after experiencing what I definitely don't want to do, I have finally found a place where I am happier and where I can see a possible career in. However, you never know where life might lead you. What does the future hold for you after graduation ? What are your plans? After all I just mentioned about myself and about "knowing which direction I want my career to go into", I still have moments of weakness, but I have learned that this is what happens in life. I don't know for sure where my life will go and what exactly I will be doing after graduation. interning at Donna Karan and living in the concrete jungle. I am excited about what the future holds for me but I would lie if I said I am not a bit anxious as well. Anyway, I am a very positive person and I believe that if I work hard enough, I will hopefully be able to achieve my goals and live my dream. I really hope that my answers will help some students out to stay focused and never let a rough period get the best of them. If you're going through hell, keep going. If you can dream it, you can do it. I had the pleasure of working on numerous occasions with Lucinda so much so that she become an honorary member of the Accounting Management Society (A Here my interview with the lovely Lucinda proving that you can still have fun while working hard ! Can you tell me a little about yourself? I am a third year BSc Business Economics studying at the Marylebone Campus of University of Westminster. I am also Vice President of the Investment Trading Society (I and am also a member of the Badminton Club. I was born and raised in London, and enjoy everything that this great city has to offer whilst being a hardworking student. As a fellow student what would you recommend to other students in the Westminster Business School? As a fellow student, I would recommend everyone to focus on his or her studies. Pick modules that you enjoy and research them extensively before you make your final choice. Also, utilise the facilities provided, such as the library, the computer labs and, the social space. It's all designed to help you study and make the most of your time while here. Also, just try to enjoy studying, don't strain yourself too much. Sometimes we are so busy that we forget about our health, we may seem fine one moment, but then the stress and pressure can hit you all at once another moment. Sleep well, eat well, avoid junk food and exercise. The mind is not designed to work at lightning speed all the time, so allow time to relax. You can spend a whole day at the computer with only 2 hours of productive work, or you can have 2 hours of productive work and relax. You'll be in the same position in both scenarios, but you'll be happier following the second option. How have you managed your responsibilities as Vice President and your schoolwork? This academic year, the I have been very busy holding several events, requiring a lot of time to organise and promote. It is very easy to get extremely dedicated in something you are passionate about, that you can get distracted from the main purpose of university, which is your degree. I always make up the hours spent working for the society by carefully planning out what I need to do. I complete the tasks that can be done in the short term immediately, so I can leave an adequate time frame for studying without distractions.

"For example, over the top geekery chic if one likes books and gadgets; the rabbit ears by Marc Jacobs if one is sexy or Playboy esque; clothing and accessories with outsize proportions for comic and anime lovers; neon and fluoro for electropop (fans)." "Styling must be expressive, unique, irreverent or with a sense of humor," she says. Choose a particular item to build your outfit around. This could be a pair of earrings, a statement necklace, or even a shade of lipstick you like or a hairstyle you're planning to try out. "An eye catching top or dress is a good way to go," suggests Katrina Dy, fashion editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine Philippines, who has gone to clubs in Florence, Turkey and New York, among other locales. "Think metallic fabrics, or beaded, sequined and embellished pieces." Nike Roshe Run Men Black Grey Volt,Aerobics, especially high impact, is a tough form of exercise to the lower extremity. To avoid injuries to the feet, knees and hips you should be in shape enough to workout at a high level, use proper equipment, have a suitable floor surface and carefully choosen shoes. The forces generated during aerobic movements can be up to six times that of gravity directed at each bone of the foot. Aerobic shoes must first and foremust have good shock absorption and be well cushioned. Aerobic moves often involve side to side or lateral movements for an extended period of time. If your foot has the tendency to supinate or pronate (turn outside or inside) it's important to see a podiatrist who may recommend controlling the side to side movement by using special inserts. Because of the lateral movements, shoes must have a well formed arch that corrects for these forces and a thick upper leather to provide stability to the front of the foot. Shoes should also have a firm toe box that is high enough to prevent pain in the toe and nail areas. Simple sneakers or tennis shoes you may have hanging around your closet probably will not be sufficient. The major shoe companies have developed both aerobic and cross training shoes that will meet the necessary safety enhancing criteria. These shoes provide the needed arch support, cushioning and side to side support which will allow safer turning and twisting. Running shoes are also not a good candidate for aerobic footwear. Runners primarily move straight ahead so their shoes aren't made for lateral support. They also often have an outside flair that puts you at a greater risk for injury. The best time to try on aerobics shoes is in the afternoon when you feet have had time to swell a bit. They should fit snug but not tight. Wear the same socks (athletic socks of acrylic blend) you are going to exercise in. Once you've found the right shoe, tie them doubly and securely. This helps prevent tripping accidents. The pair of shoes you choose for aerobic classes is a very important determinate in how many and what kind of injuries you could sustain. It is imperative duting those high impact or interval classes to have properly supported shoes. Low impact also does a lot of side to side movements so don't think you can get by with your old closet sneakers in these classes either.
Discover Our Latest Collection Of Nike Roshe Run Men Black Grey Volt,Women Nike Free Run 3 Hot Punch Pink Grey Kobe Bryant basketball shoes by Nike are quality, innovative shoes. The sixth edition of the Zoom Kobe series was released in December, 2010. Fans of both shoes and Bryant always look forward to the drop date of each shoe, and it was no different in the months and weeks leading up to the drop of the ZK VI. A wide range of colorways is available to the Zoom Kobe sneakers. Periodically, though, Nike releases unique editions of the Bryant sneaker. Though Adidas was the first maker of the official Bryant sneaker, Nike helped explode the popularity of his sneakers. The first affiliation for Bryant with Nike was the Air Zoom Huarache 2K4. It was followed the next year with the 2K5. This 2K5 was the first to feature his new Nike logo. It is alleged to symbolize a samurai warrior. The Air Zoom Kobe I was the first Nike shoe bearing his name. It debuted on Christmas Day, 2005. Less than a month later, while wearing them against the Toronto Raptors, he poured in 81 points in a game. The next two Bryant shoes, the Zoom Kobe II and Zoom Kobe III, followed suit. They successively gave the player wearing them increased stability, cushioning, and support. There was speculation, however, that Bryant was not fond of the ZKII, as he wore a different shoe for most of the season the ZKII was released. Though Bryant had an affiliation with the Hyperdunk shoes during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, his fourth shoe, Zoom Kobe IV, turned heads and created a sensation. Not only one of the lightest shoes Nike had made to that point, it was a low top. Not even a mid top shoe, it was like a regular shoe. People liked playing ball in them and they came in more than a dozen colorways, including some collectible editions. These included shoes called Carpe Diem, Del Sol, and All Star Game. Others were themed such as Draft Day Hornets Edition, showcasing the 2009 NBA Finals, celebrating the Minneapolis Lakers, and more. Nike released the Zoom Kobe V for general sale in late 2009. It eventually became available in at least twenty colors. A low top, as well, the ZKV was lighter and offered more stability than the previous Zoom Kobe. At its release, the ZKV held the distinction of being the lowest and lightest hoops kicks in Nike history. Part of the inspiration of for such a low cut was inspired the game of soccer, or football. Bryant played the sport as a child and wanted a basketball shoe that allowed for enhanced lateral movement. Its weight is less than 11 ounces. The variety of the color patterns that the Zoom Kobe V were available in was vast. Some hues were Los Angeles Lakers related, including the regular Home edition, a second Home addition, an Away edition, and a Playoff Pack. Versions recreated from the ZKIV included Del Sol, Chaos, All Star Game, Draft Day Hornets, and others. New colorways not officially introduced for ZK IV included one each for Duke University and the University of Southern California. There was also a Lower Merion High School Edition and a Team USA edition. Three unique color schemes included a Martin Luther King, Jr., edition, a Dark Knight edition, and a Bruce Lee version.
