From as early as I can remember, I have always found myself fascinated with the world of fashion. Whether, I was playing dress up in my mother’s closet, or flipping through the latest issue of Vogue, I spent the majority of my childhood perfecting my personal style and finding new ways to learn about the industry I loved so much.
I was interested in clothes and jewelry and all of the other things that little girls are interested in, but my passion was so much more than that. From watching shows on TV and movies like The Devil Wears Prada, I have always been envious of the people who were lucky enough to live and work in the notorious fashion industry and have always been determined to one day live that dream.
I grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and unfortunately for me, it was not exactly the hub for style-savvy people. I spent my days in high heels and dresses while my classmates sported their finest sweatpants and sneakers. Needless to say, I was destined for something more. When it came time to graduate from high school and spread my wings, there was no hesitation in what path I chose to follow. I knew that I wanted a future in fashion and that is what led me to where I am today. I am currently a sophomore at Kent State University studying a major in Fashion Merchandising along with a minor in French.
While attending Kent State, and delving deeper into my fashion addiction, I have found even more things to become passionate about. I have truly developed a love for my school and the beautiful campus that it rests upon, but most of all I have found a love for the diverse student population that inhabits it.
For anyone who doesn’t already know, Kent State is known for its fabulous fashion programs and therefore, the School of Fashion is utterly oozing with creative talent. For the first time in my life, I have found myself surrounded by people who put just as much effort into their personal style as I do and by acquiring this internship I will be able to share with the world the Fashionistas/os of Kent! I am so excited to be able to document the creatively dressed characters that I encounter each and every day and hope that my readers enjoy seeing what spectacular style is hiding here in good old Kent, Ohio.
