Hello everyone! My name is Kiera Dieter and I am SOOOOO excited to be interning for Bliss Bridal Magazine this semester. It is only my second week and I have already learned so much and been given the opportunity to do so many things that I love! Below you will find out a little bit more about me: my life, aspirations, why I wanted to intern here, etc.
This is a pretty old picture of me, but it’s the best I have right now. I haven’t changed much!
I am originally from California but came to Texas in the 5th grade because I come from a military family. We also lived in Arizona for awhile, but California will always be my favorite (sorry Texans!). I now attend the University of Texas at Austin and I am in my last semester (yay!!!). I am studying journalism here and it’s a love/hate relationship (mostly love). I am twin! Which is really awesome! We just turned 22 two days ago on January 27th!
After I graduate I would love to further pursue my love for photography. I want to be a wedding photographer (and have shot 4 so far, yay!) but I would love to see that expand to about 10 in a semester, instead of 4! I would love to continue working in the journalism field as well (preferably if it is related to weddings). Also, in the very near future, I am getting married! And I cannot wait!! I get married on March 12th of this year. Hopefully I will get to share with you some of my wedding planning journey as my internship progresses.
Why I am excited to intern for Bliss Bridal Magazine:
Well first of all, I LOVE weddings! I want to be a wedding photographer so I am on wedding sites like 24/7. But also I have recently gotten more into journalism (after all it is what I am studying) and graphic design (I really really love this!) so Bliss Bridal seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to combine those three things. A friend of mine showed the magazine to me and I fell in love! I love the stylish and friendly design that Bliss Bridal Magazine offers. It is so much more than a regular bridal magazine. Plus, I have always thought it would be cool to work for a magazine (that probably stems from my love of Ugly Betty). I can’t wait to learn more and more about this industry from Angela, and I am so excited to use the skills I have learned over the years to help Bliss Bridal Magazine in any way I can!
Things I love:
- my family! (they may be crazy at times, but I couldn’t live without them!)
- my fiancé (duh)
- wedding photography (really anything wedding related)
- my church family (Hill Country Bible Church: Central)
- all things Canon
- all things Apple
- beautiful websites
- interesting font types
- Bush’s sweet tea
- the West Coast
- graphic design
- Binge watching shows on Netflix (Friends, Glee, Ugly Betty, Parks and Rec, Mad Men, Gilmore Girls and Grey’s Anatomy, to name a few)
- reading (I love love love to read!)
- miniature schnauzers
- coffee! (although I think I might be allergic?)
- Christmas music
- 90’s rap
- planners (gotta keep my life organized!)
- trying new foods
Well I think that is enough about me! I am so excited for the rest of this semester with Bliss Bridal Magazine! Thanks for reading!
