Grace is an online web magazine aimed at girls ages 13 through 18. This website

features material divided into four distinct categories that each cater to important aspects of a modern teenage girl’s life: Your Life, which covers lifestyle topics; Your Self, which covers health-related subjects including food, exercise, and nutrition; Your Style, which features fashion and beauty advice and news; and Your World, which delves into all aspects of modern culture.

This website publishes all original content, and strives to serve as an intellectual and entertaining resource in young girls’ lives. Grace provides girls with relevant articles that use sophisticated language, yet remain approachable and conversational. In a marketplace saturated with superficial fluff and watered-down information, Grace aims to stand out as a stimulating and engaging place for this demographic to spend time online.

This website is hosted and supported by WordPress, but includes all custom coding and design. All works not written by Emmie Martin are original works submitted by Syracuse students. These pieces were either specifically commissioned to be included in Grace or previously unpublished articles written for classes. All articles were edited by Emmie Martin.
