National Selfie Day 2016 was just a few days ago, on June 21. Having recently written a 15-page essay on the visual and social implications of selfies, I consider myself a connoisseur of selfie culture.

Anna Craft is a writer and Starbucks barista living in Royal Oak, Michigan. She was born and raised in Sterling Heights, Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University last year. Although writing is her passion, she loves working as a barista and says that knowing how to make a proper cappuccino is a necessary life skill. If she could spend her days reading, writing, and hiking, she would. When she’s not freelance writing and designing, making coffee, or on Pinterest, Anna can be found shopping, reading or hiking. Anna’s clever wit, impeccable taste in tattoos and fashion, and passion for living life to the fullest has earned her over 2.5M Pinterest followers!

Pinterest was finally a place to do it online and I was so excited to have found a website that let me continue this hobby (and save some paper and time.)

Why do you like Pinterest?

I just love how much there is! People are really putting as many products and images as possible on there. It’s fun to find images and ideas that I’ve never seen before and never would have thought of otherwise.
