Helaina Hovitz

I’m a born and raised New Yorker who has always had the unreasonable notion that I can help change the world…in the process, I’ve found that I also have a knack for observing it. I graduated from the New School (2011) with a BA in Journalism, and write/have written for

Forbes, The New York Observer, The Daily Meal, The New York Times, Salon, Newsday, Teen Vogue, Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune, SCENE Magazine, Broadway.com, Commercial Observer, New York Press, Narratively, Time Out NY, amNewYork, The New York Post, Downtown Express, The Lo Down, the Villager, Chelsea Now and Social Life. I am also a Contributing Editor for Avenue Magazine.

I am also currently Editor in Chief at the brand new Affect Magazine.

While I cover everything from culture to real estate and all things New York, my greatest passion is writing about charities, nonprofits, philanthropy and inspirational people.

I also work as a media outreach professional, helping clients with heart get their stories told.
