My name is Elihu Garcia, I was born and raised here in The Rio Grande Valley, which is located at the deepest parts of South Texas. Living here has giving me the chance to play with both the Mexican and American cultures and unique trends. I’m currently a senior at the University of Texas Pan American. I’m a Mass Communications Print major and this is my second semester writing for the LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS category.
The past fall was an amazing honor interning and being part of CollegeFashionista. It was a little difficult at first since I was new to the experience but it was an amazing experience in which I made friends along the journey and I’ll be forever thankful. Exploring around the university and looking for Fashionistos can be challenging at times but sharing them with readers like you is really exciting and rewarding. Taking the photos and sharing them with you all, of specific trends or items from Fashionistos is what I enjoy most of all; I’m a big photography lover. My passions include my current job which is retail at Bath & Body Works, fashion, concerts, being social, art, internet and of course photography.
My take on fashion has grown. I used to be very close minded and tried sticking to the ordinary at times but over these past months I’ve pushed myself to try new things. Being unique and trying new trends might sound very cliché to some but it’s become my type of fashion motto now.
I feel like now that it’s finally 2014, it’s a new opportunity to set new goals. I’m really excited to share the Fashionistos I’ll find this spring semester. It’ll be a fun thrill that I hope you embark on it with me and enjoy.
