From treacherous roads, to new beginnings, here’s to conquering and dominating the year of 2015! With that being said, let me introduce myself. My name is Brisa Gomez. I’m a 21-year-old girl living in the hot, wrenching sun of what we call Miami, Florida. I currently attend Miami Dade College, and I’m majoring in Mass Communications and Journalism. Some have nicknamed me “Seabreeze,” and others have nicknamed me “B-rizzle.” You may be wondering why? I think it may have to do with the fact that my name “Brisa” means “breeze” in Spanish. Yay for a fun fact!

I am very happy to continue with CollegeFashionista for a second semester! It’s been a great ride and a great team to be a part of. If there’s one thing I’ve learned and feel I’ve improved on, it’s definitely my writing. I feel very grateful to have found a place where I can share my love for fashion and get to work on my craft. The world of fashion has been like a wonderland where I feel no need to escape from. Through fashion, I’ve been able to find peace and understanding. I choose what to wear, and I wear what I want. It’s as simple as that.

Among other things, I enjoy cheese fries way too much (I might have an addiction), Taylor Swift’s album has been on constant repeat, and I’m a feminist and believe in human equality for all. Not only do I hope to work within the fashion industry one day, but I hope to one day be a part of a community and organization that helps those who may be struggling, been bullied or have been discriminated against for who they are. No one should have to suffer.

I hope to work in a creative environment where it doesn’t feel like work but an adventure instead. I want to surround myself with people who have a love for creativity, innovation and want the best for everyone.

I hope you guys started the year with new hopes and dreams and are ready to take action. I’m ready to take on another semester with CollegeFashionista. Be on the lookout for my articles every Friday, and stay RAD!
