Four years certainly goes by fast! I swear it was just yesterday when I was at my orientation, denying the fact the freshman 15 existed— but boy did it ever. I’ve truly learned the best about myself and had the most memorable experiences. The stories and inside jokes with friends that will never fail to make me laugh, the glory behind naps that I never appreciated in my younger years, and the fact that energy drinks are indeed a food group during finals week. As lightening fast as my college years have been, they have truly been the best years of my life.
Although my time with CollegeFashionista has only been for a semester, my gratitude is truly beyond words. I have loved contributing as a Style Guru and only wished I discovered it earlier! CollegeFashionista has given me opportunities, challenged me and made me confront my strengths as well as weakness. I’ve grown to realize my capabilities as a writer and fashion enthusiast, as I am reassured that this is the field where I am meant to be. I appreciate CollegeFashionista for offering a platform for people to come together to grow, share and support each other— to take risks and constantly feel inspired. Where fashion addiction is appreciated and celebrated in all aspects. It’s nice to know I am not alone in the struggle of deciding what I’m going to wear the next morning rather than last minute cramming for my exam.
As for my plans for the future, I’m not quite sure yet. But I have a dream for myself and I certainly won’t give it up. I know that fashion is my calling and I am determined to find my place in the industry. In the meantime, I’ll turn to every episode of GIRLS as my virtual comfort food, as I dream of Olivia Palermo’s closet and continue to read my Horoscope until it tells me something I want to hear. My advice to anyone in need of encouragement is to never limit yourself. Exceed your own expectations and whatever your dreams may be, remember to dream big. Until then, Style On my friends.
