Miss A Columnist

Anna Marie Schonberg is a writer based in New York City, N.Y. She is currently finishing a Master of Fine Arts in fiction at Sarah Lawrence College.

Anna’s new company, Beauty by Anna Marie, has already done multiple beauty shoots, fashion shows, music video shoots and weddings.

Twelve years spent working as an international fashion model across four continents sparked Anna’s passion for all things beauty. But now she prefers to be behind the camera rather than in front of it. Having learned skincare secrets and makeup tips and tricks from the best professionals in the world, Anna’s own mission is to help everyone look and feel like the most beautiful version of themselves.

To unwind after a busy day, Anna’s favorite thing to do is to giggle at her rescue kitten’s antics, or, strategize to find new forever homes for animals at the shelter www.foranimalsinc.com where she volunteers and plans fundraisers. Her new hobby is taking cute pictures of the shelter animals, all dolled up in ribbons and pearls and scarves, to increase their chances of adoption.

She is most recently proud of the fact that her toddler told Santa, in response to his question about what she wanted for Christmas that, “she already had everything she needed.”
