Meagan Albrechtson knew she wanted to be a writer from the moment she got her hands on Seventeen magazine. She was hooked on the embarrassing stories, D.I.Y. fashion ideas, and relatable essays. She later moved on to Vogue, if only for the high-fashion photo spreads. 

As a freelance journalist, the most rewarding part of her job is the chance to interview people, pry into their interesting lives and learn their stories. Lolita is a self-run project featuring profiles on startup businesses, driven creatives and inspiring artists fulfilling the lives they want to live.
