Today's Crush: Erika Ramirez, Creator of ILY Mag

Vulnerability and honesty are strength.

Today, we highlight the work of Erika Ramirez, founding Editor-in-Chief at ILY mag and seasoned freelance writer/editor (with previous gigs at Billboard and Rookie, to name a few).

In anticipation for ILY's August editorial letter, Erika released a series of tweets exploring both determination and surrender. 

We hope you find her words as motivating as we do.

Would you like to submit to ILY Mag? Details on August submissions below:

What does Surrender mean to you? Feel free to send over submissions and pitches that tie to the August theme at INFO@ILYMAG.COM. All ideas (essays, interviews, photo essays, short films, vignettes, trend reports, analysis, short stories, art) are welcome, especially the unconventional. — Erika Ramirez
