testimonials/ACCOLADES Each month BRINK focuses on a community photographer or designer and gives them the platform to show their work. How phenomenal is that? It truly focuses on talent and culture that is surrounding your neighborhood and most probably include some of your friends.There are also pop culture editorials on TV, film, new media, music, literature, beauty, style and fashion. It is a very fun, interesting read.The very first time I picked up a copy I was like,YES! These people know what’s up.

I feel blessed to be able to share my strength and courage to help motivate and set a tone of understanding when people come from rough beginnings.Thank you so much for giving me another outlet to express myself! BRINK rocks!

BRINK also includes contributor opinions on national and global events featuring articles from London, Scotland, New York and LA. There is a huge world out there and what we do in our community may have inspiration from the other amazing cities in our world so it’s cool to hear the contributor’s opinions.

You made my year with this. I cannot express how happy and flattered I am.

Lisa D’Amato Winner, America’s Next Top Model All Stars I am so beyond excited to share this with the world.
