Hope Student Looking for Love Stories

love stories banner aimee

THIS Liverpool Hope University student is looking for your love stories - so she can share them via her unique new online publication.  

Aimee Puleston, 20, is in her third year at Hope, studying Media & Communication alongside Film & Visual Culture.

Besides her undergraduate programme, Aimee has also launched her own online publication - Galerie de Aims - where she writes about everything from fashion and beauty to travel and celebrity interviews. 

And now Aimee is reaching out to the Hope community in an effort to examine what ‘love’ means to different people. 

She’s calling on readers to send her their love ‘stories’ - which can be anonymous if you wish - with suggestions including date stories, explanations of the things you love, a love letter to your other half, or even love letters to places, memories or periods of time. 

Aimee, herself from Liverpool, explains: “My Love Stories campaign will be running throughout February and beyond, with individual submissions featured on my website. 

“It could be a love story to someone, something, a place, a memory... or anything, really! 

“I hope the project might appeal to aspiring writers, too, who want to showcase their work online. And, of course, I’ll be writing a story myself. 

“Most of all, think that, right now, everyone needs a boost of love, and hopefully the stories will resonate with people.”

If you’re interested in getting a story to Aimee, simply email hello@galeriedeaims.com - and the voluntary submissions can be either handwritten or in digital format.

Having launched the site in May, Aimee has already collaborated with a string of independent fashion and beauty brands while also becoming an ambassador for an accessories firm called ‘Loopy London’.

Speaking of how the publication was first launched, and why she hopes to continue to grow the venture, Aimee told Hope last year: “Galerie de Aims was started in May of 2020, during the first Coronavirus lockdown in the UK.

“I had finished my second year, and all the coursework that came with it, and was spending the lockdown reading through various blogs and websites.

“I’d always dreamed of having my own platform and this seemed like the perfect time to give it a go. I began planning in late April and by May 11th the website was live on WordPress! 

“I honestly think it’s the best thing I have ever done.”

Aimee, who has been getting vital marketing and PR experience through her work with various different brands and agencies, adds: “I like to think my website helps to give small and independent businesses a platform to talk about their collections. 

“I also think it’s a product of having a dream, and then trying to make that dream come true.”
