 Not even a week has passed since my latest piece was featured on WorldLifestyle, yet I remain a whirlwind of emotions:

stunned | amazed | humbled | blessed | grateful

For everyone who took the time to read my article and reach out to me with genuine appreciation,  I want to say thank you. Last night I went back to the link and I nearly keeled over when I found it had been shared 167 times.

After graduating college I was left with more questions than answers. One year later I am still faced with the same persisting insecurity of the unknown. The one thing that is certain is that this life isn’t easy. It’s really hard. However within life’s test, there’s a blessing which I believe to be Harmony. Similarly, we are all working through our own insecurities rooted within each struggle:

health | life struggle | finances| post-graduation blues | loss | career

If you’re reading this with someone in mind, I encourage you to share my article on WorldLifestyle with them. Maybe it will inspire them to keep faith during the hard times. Keeping a brave face, you have all inspired me in times when I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. My only wish is that I can return the favor and help be the spark that ignites someone’s fire. To everyone who is keeping me going, I owe it to you for reminding me why I began in the first place.

Thanks for always being my match!

This past weekend I turned 23, the year of Michael Jordan.

I began to reflect on the past with the intention to see just how far I had come this past year in my personal journey. In terms of coming into my own, I surprised myself with my improvement in creating a distinct voice and style for myself here in LA. Fashion is strange, it has its way of evolving and changing on us. The only constant is you. Your style.

Growing naturally into my versatility, I realized my personal style has a certain personality attached to it. While refraining from using the term ego, I can confidently say I have an attitude. It’s apparent in the way I dress and carry myself, in front of the camera or off. Clothes and trends may change but my constant is drawn from a ying-yang source. This innate ability to create a balance between contrasting dualities may be a reflection of my tomboy roots and/or desire to prove girls can be just as strong as the boys. A feminine softness met with a masculine toughness works to compliment each other by creating an intriguing dynamism; Giving you the best of both worlds.

This will be my year. The year of a {classic}.
