Arriving at Purdue from a small, one-stoplight town in Indiana, Chandler DeHart’s early resume was mostly limited to athletics, a very small side gig as a self-taught photographer, and baling hay with her dad in the summer.
Today, DeHart (BS Marketing ’16) has made the giant leap to Atlanta, Georgia, finding success in a career that didn’t exist in her youth — social media influencer.
DeHart is @candidlychan on Instagram and the face of candidlychan.com, a popular style blog that offers tips on fashion, lifestyle, recipes, and home decor. The Krannert marketing graduate started the blog in college as a creative outlet for her passion for photography, fashion, and creative writing.
