VOLTA Spring Summer '16

Page 6


Behind-the-Scenes Photographer/Model I am currently in my 2nd year of the MIT program. The first time I was exposed to F&LS was in first year, that was the first time I realized that things I was interested in were happening at Western. Volta attracted me at the first meeting we had, the way the team presented themselves inspired me to try something new. I love that Volta is something physical we can put out to others and say, "Hey, we're creating something innovative like this. Come check us out and be a part of it." What I'm learning is that it's okay to be who I am, the team makes me realize that I'm never alone. I love expressing myself in different ways; photography, dance, fashion, social media, modelling, music and writing. The goal of expression is to build on who I am.

Chelsea Clifford: Stylist/Model

I am currently in my 2nd year of Honours Specialization Political Science. I joined Volta because I appreciate fashion and I wanted to be in an atmosphere with others that also do. I wanted to see that my own contributions as a stylist made a difference and elicited a distinctness that was not seen before. Volta has taught me that everyone’s opinion and input makes a difference; always say what you're thinking because it might be something amazing. Alongside my interests in fashion, I am a hip-hop connoisseur and always feen soccer. Catch me on campus sporting my favourite pink vintage coat!

Laura Robinson:

Stylist/Literary Editor I’m currently in my second year of MIT. Admittedly, I’ve always been a hoarder of magazines; I love pulling inspiration from editorials and reading something that isn’t always a textbook, so when I heard about Volta, I knew I had to get involved. Being a part of the diverse and talented Volta team has taught me that creativity should never be held back – even if you think an idea might be a little crazy. Crazy is beautiful. When I’m not editing article submissions or styling a shoot, I’m working on my headstands in yoga, attempting to teach myself the ukulele, or collecting vintage coats.

Jake Dunbar:

Shoot Contributor/Model I am in my first year in the Music Administrative Studies Program at The University of Western Ontario. I joined Volta because I have always had a love for fashion and it seemed like a great way to get involved and meet new people at Western who share a similar passion. Volta has opened my eyes to what goes on behind the camera and how much thought and analysis goes into each aspect of the clothing and photograph. My hobbies beyond clothing and fashion include musical theatre, choir, visual arts and sports.
