I AM Modern Magazine is not only a magazine, but is tied inextricably to the communities in which we cover. We pride ourselves in our link to the pulse of the suburbs, and continually explore new and innovative ways to bring our message to our readers.
Hulya Aksu started I AM Modern Magazine in 2007, after making a move to the DC suburbs from Atlanta. Looking for a new Pediatrician, Hulya found that there was a discernable lack of dependable information concerning local businesses that offer services relevant to the lives of local moms. After some thought, Hulya decided to be that source of information in the area and I AM Modern Magazine was born.
