Next Year by Gabi Valladares

“Hi there, my name is Gabi Valladares and I am a recent (2013) alumna from CAMD. Though I graduated from Northeastern University, I didn’t go far; I actually now work in the Center for Student Involvement. My (long-winded) official title is the ‘Coordinator of Social Media Marketing and Virtual Engagement’ – I manage our blog, social media channels, and branding/marketing materials. It’s a pretty sweet gig.

Outside of CSI (nifty acronym, right?), I blog on Kneadle + Bread and tweet, pin, and instagram from @gabivalladares. Oh! And I’m also the creative director for the soon-to-be BOS Lady Project, an Etsy shop owner, and an advisor to NU’s Sigma Kappa chapter. I guess you can say I keep myself busy.

Finally, the playlist! Fall is, hands-down, my favorite season. Basically, I merge together fall and winter every year (I know, I know, it’s not the same – whatever). I typically associate the cold weather with a new beginning, though I definitely do not rush my way through the winter festivities. This time around, my fall/winter playlist is all about refreshing sounds, catchy lyrics, and upbeat tempos. Enjoy!”
