One summer, Judee and her friends made a 36-hour road trip from California to Tennessee. Guess what got them through it? Go Girl Energy Drink. She said the long-lasting energy kick and great taste made the drink something she and her friends go back to when studying late. Judee, a microbiology major, also does breast cancer research — and she does it with great style, too.
“I like clean, structured lines and dark colors” Judee told Go Girl. “I tend to have one point of interest in my outfit instead of everything colliding. I keep it very clean and simple.”

Anna-Alexia is a photographer for Refinery 29, the largest independent fashion and lifestyle magazine in the U.S. Although she can often be found wearing black and neutral tones, donning bright colors and interesting textures to make flirty and fresh looks come to life is second-nature to this Florida-native.

Even though Coline has to wear all black clothing for work, she mixes it up by combining feminine lace with the gritty, urban edge of a combat boot. This is more or less her personality, too.
“I always wear black even when I’m not at work,” Coline told Go Go. “It’s really easy and classic. You can wear something black and sheer or black and lace and it stills manages to stay low-key and chic. The I like adding something heavier like a sneaker or boot.”
