Kaitlyn Oudt- Editor in Chief
Hello everyone, it’s Kaitlyn Oudt! I’m the founder and Editor in Chief here at Cosmia Magazine. I’m currently an undergraduate student at SDSU where I am studying Speech Language Pathology. I am part of Pi Beta Phi here in San Diego, have my own photography website called Kaitlyn Photography, and love to write. I am a coffee fanatic, love the beach, adore mom & pop breakfast restaurants, and think a picture is worth a thousand words.
Gabriella Scaringe- Writer
I’m Gabriella Scaringe and I’m one of the dedicated writers here at Cosmia Magazine. Being a fashion and beauty fanatic, Cosmia is the perfect place for me to share my love of clothes, makeup, and hair with world. Showing girls how to be more confident in their skin is something I deeply value, and I strive to promote that message through my articles.

Christina Olivia- Writer
I’m a nineteen year old, Southern Californian, professional designer and makeup artist, who is currently pursuing the finer things in life (art, food and travel). Here are some others things that are mildly interesting about me: I am trying to learn Italian and live up to my surname. I will eat almost anything. I have two closets, and I’m working on a third. I collect books and magazines (and apparently closets). So if you ever need someone to eat exotic food with or to translate an Italian magazine, I’m your girl. You can contact me here: email@example.com insta @binkyoliva Ciao!
Lauren Pak- Writer
My name is Lauren, a floating free spirit and wishful world traveler originally hailing from sun-kissed southern California. Everything has a story, especially clothes! I hope to draw out the stories hiding in the folds (literally and metaphorically) of fashion. I am an absolutely avid proponent of sustainable fashion for a cause, and I can’t wait to share my secrets on how to dress-to-impress in a socially conscious manner with DIYs, thrift finds, and wellness tips through Cosmia Mag!!

I’m a seventeen-year-old, (nearly) six-foot-tall professional model and full-time high school student in Southern California. Apart from writing, studying, and modeling in the LA area, I enjoy philosophy, film-making, acting, and singing. I’m always on the search for something new, whether it’s art, music, film, fashion, or travel. I love people who can make me laugh and I’ll always be fascinated with the candy-coated artificiality of suburban culture. I can’t stand the possibility of not living my life to the fullest it can be, and I think that the truth is the most beautiful thing in our world.
Fashion and writing are more than just passions for me – they are a lifestyle, so I am beyond enthusiastic to be one of the Features Writers of Cosmia Magazine. I currently attend Parsons the New School for Design studying Design Management in the Big Apple. For any of my successes, I have coffee to thank. In the future I would love to be a creative director of a fashion house, fashion editor, or Disney Imagineer.

I’m Alexea Malaletkin, currently residing in Southern California where I waste weekends either on my couch or at concert venues. I currently work as an editor for my school newspaper and will be majoring in either journalism or English language this fall. I am a food, internet, and rainy day enthusiast with a fervor for makeup and fashion. I draw a lot of inspiration from art, music, and movies– all of which will most certainly make an appearance in my work here. Keep up with me on Instagram (malaletkin7) and Tumblr (throughanindielens.tumblr.com)

LilyAnne enjoys loudly singing showtunes when no one is home and sometimes when they are, short walks on the beach because she’s afraid of the parking meter running out, and collecting video-game related bumper stickers to put on her station wagon. One day she hopes to make a career of posting funny pictures of cats, but for now she’s going to try this writing thing.
