Our new guest editor for September is Katherine Schwarzenegger. Read her introduction letter to find out what kind of contributions she will be making to The Conversation this month.
Dear Conversation Readers,
I am so excited to be guest hosting The Conversation for the month of September! I am honored that Amanda has asked me to be a part of such an amazing project that takes on the issues and topics that I find incredibly important for women of all ages.
As a young woman living in Los Angeles, it is difficult to resist getting caught up in all of the glamour and perfection of this town. It is common to think that you are the only one who isn’t able to be perfect in all aspects of your life. As a young woman, it is easy to get overwhelmed by all of one’s roles in life and trying to be the best at everything one does. It is a constant balancing act.
One of the things that I love about this site and everything Amanda has done with The Conversation, is the fact that nothing is sugar-coated. She has created a powerful place for women to deal with their struggles in an open and honest way. In all of the interviews on the site, celebrities are made more human as they open up and show that they are just like everyone else. The message that everyone is dealing with the same struggles has really caused this website to turn into a community where people can come to feel like they are not alone.
Over the past year I have been experiencing my own dose of reality — graduating from college, trying to figure out my life, and taking on a project to write a book about dealing with it all. I love being able to share my knowledge of dealing with that transitional phase to help other people better understand that the fear and confusion that comes after closing a chapter, and embarking on a new one, is normal.
I hope to be able to positively contribute to this fabulous community and share what I have learned along my journey thus far. As we send off summer and start our transition into the fall, we can all get back to the fast flow of lives knowing that we still have our friends at The Conversation to ease our minds and give us that love and support we never can get enough of.
Happy September, and enjoy the site!!
