Starting November 2007, Ladies Lotto will be recognizing its members in NYC, LA, MTL and in the diaspora. After all, it's these women who make it all happen. If you would like to be considered or have a lovely lady to nominate, please contact us!
This month we're honoring two key members.
SANDRA MIHALENKO, Brooklyn, NY
During Sandra's 15-year career she's been a photographer, shark researcher, fashion marketer (many times over), a pop culture sales person, problem solver and friend. Past employers include Meltin Pot and Tokion Magazine just to name a few. Currently she works as Business Development Guru at GEN ART, an organization that supports film, fashion, music and visual arts.
Sandra's been apart of Ladies Lotto since the beginning! She was present at the first meeting in 2006 and has played an important role from PR for our benefit for Planned Parenthood to helping create structure for Ladies Lotto. What makes her so amazing is her need to strive for balance between the professional and personal - she's into yoga, cooking and a good laugh with her friends. She feeds her creative side with photo projects, learning video technique and building a website to showcase her art (can't wait to see it). Special thanks to her husband Chris and her big fat cat Nipper (we've got to find a photo). She recently moved to Brooklyn and can do an incredible impression of a yuppy Brooklynite. Thank you for being apart of Ladies Lotto!
GIOVANNAH CHIU, Boston, MA
Serving as Lifestyle Marketing Director at Karmaloop.com, Miami native Giovannah Chiu is also a proud Ladies Lotto member. While dabbling in all aspects of the marketing spectrum for the streetwear e-tailer, from public relations to event planning, advertising, promotions, and contests, most of her time has been recently devoted in the production of KarmaloopTV. Producing these online television clips entails seeking and confirming interviews with cultural icons, generating esoteric interview questions, creative direction on specific segments such as gallery openings, fashion and music industry behind-the-scenes, street style sessions and more.
In addition to marketing, Giovannah also contributes to several weblogs such as URB, Misscrew and our very own Ladies Lotto blog where she is editor-in-chief. You can also read her first published art review on Shoplifter (Icelandic artist) in MissBehave Magazine's issue #2. Closely consulting for Hearthrob, Boston based cult-ish and widely popular electro bi-weekly party, has engender a high brow passion in her for discovery and networking with globally renown DJ's for future endeavors.
Ladies Lotto would like to thank Giovannah for her commitment to us. She's incredible, somehow she finds the time to maintain involvement along with being a super power!! If you'd like to submit an blog entry for consideration, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
