Joining the team in August 2011, Monique became Online Editor, and hasn’t looked back since. She’s written for the likes of Dazed and Hunger, and is now working as freelance events manager and writer, planning special networking seminars for young people. She’d also love to have her own brand that deals with the events and publishing sector. Check her interview with LA car designer in Inside Job.
Our new Online Editor, Christina discovered LIVE when reading about our work in a newspaper. She describes her role as “very fulﬁlling and challenging” and wants to explore every creative area as much as she can, to make sure she doesn’t give a label to herself before she’s even tried them – although she admits her overriding interest is in fashion. She has an incredible energy that cannot be stopped!
Stumbling across LIVE in May 2012 while attending a focus group, Hari has since been able to exercise her passion for journalism. She focuses on arts and theatre, but this issue she’s exploring the youth invasion of casinos. She wishes to do a masters after university and to one day become a foreign correspondent for the BBC or have an arts column in The Guardian.
Ryan is a recent addition to the team, gracing our HQ with his unique personality since last year. It was his love of football and sports generally that ﬁrst drew him in and you can read his regular opinion pieces online. For this issue, though, the East Londoner explores the world of slimming and ﬁtness in our Dummies Guide to Diets. He keeps things undercover but boy, there’s a lot going on under that hat.
Jack joined LIVE last year. His obsession with computers led him to start the LIVE magazine forum and he’s always coming up with online ideas, making powerpoints to persuade us that we should do them right now. He wants to go to college to get qualiﬁcations in computer and ICT maintenance. He’s a devoted gamer – check his previews of the biggest new releases on the Games page.
