Hi! Did you pick up this project book, see the title and immediately wonder, "What is a White Bread Girl anyway?"
Good question. I like you.
There are so many books aimed at the 20something category claiming to represent my generation and miserably failing.
Maybe I fall into a 20something minority category but I don’t enjoy eating pizza at 2am like Lena Dunham in her book Not That kind of Girl, I don’t like eating nothing and drinking everything like The Betches do in their book Nice is Just a Place in France and I’m not a fan of constantly dieting like Mindy Kaling says she is in Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me.
White Bread Girl is my own personal solution to this underrepresentation. Instead of waiting for my role models; Emma Watson, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively to gift their 20something autobiographies to the world, I decided to write my own. White Bread Girl is a blog chronicling my experience of being a 20something because I strongly believe that as humans we share a hunger for connection with others. We crave stories about other humans because in stories we are able to uncover little pieces and lessons that can be understood in our own lives.
This is primarily a writing capstone but as a dual magazine/ writing major I couldn’t resist slipping in a little White Bread Girl social media and branding. In addition to the blog I have created a Twitter and an Instagram.
20somethings do so much more than just party and hookup. I started White Bread Girl to document my experience and offer other non-stereotypical 20something girls, an alternative persona for our generation.
