Getting To Know The New Atoosa: ‘Gay Girls Are Girls Too’

ann_shoket_seventeen_sm.jpgMore background on Atoosa Rubenstein‘s Seventeen successor Ann Shoket. Seventeeners, meet your new boss:

  • Shoket discovered the Internet via boyfriend’s love notes:

    When did you first discover your love and/or obsession with computers and technology?

    Before I understood much about the Internet, my boyfriend sent me love e-notes and cute jpegs. I knew that using technology to unite people and to share emotions and experiences was going to be my greatest obsession.

  • She ate a lot of mac and cheese in college.
  • Her Amazon.com wishlist included an Oprah book, a 60GB external hard drive and a set of queen duvet covers called “gumps.”
  • She fully embraces girl-on-girl action:

    “Gay girls are girls too. CosmoGirl! is for all girls. So we include them.”
