Since the creation of Affinity Magazine in 2013, we knew we wanted to be a different type of news outlet. I think in these past 4 years we have achieved that, we are an alternative news outlet ran entirely by teens. Last weekend we hosted our rooftop party to celebrate 4 years of Affinity Magazine.
We welcomed new readers, old readers and anyone else who wanted to come celebrate with us! When I started this publication at 16, I never expected that it would have this much impact. So much impact that I get death threats in the form of emails and comments. It’s interesting to see so many people bothered by the words of teenagers.
We had a great time at the celebration! We are hoping for 4 more years of Affinity — or beyond! We even had our own Snapchat filter!
