Elle gives homeless girl an internship...

A homeless girl and sometime blogger named Bri just secured an internship at Elle under advice columnist E. Jean.

Bri, who is reported to live in a Wal-Mart parking lot, saw an ad for writers and those with a passion for fashion to enter a competition to win an internship at Elle, which she did. Shortly thereafter, she received a call from Fremantle Media (American Idol, America's Got Talent), inviting her to audition for a new reality show for which the internship was the prize.

Bri went in for the audition but wrote in April that she bombed it, so she wrote Jean a letter to explain what had happened. Jean responded to the letter in her column, inviting her to intern with her for four months, stating that "at the end of the four months, if you don't have a job and an awesome place to live, I will become your intern." Bri just made contact with Jean and accepted the position yesterday.

Good luck to Bri and congrats!

I'd imagine through the community center at which she had computer access.
