Another year past and I’ll admit that this time, it definitely feels different than last year. I’m not usually a big birthday person–sometimes I almost forget! But this year, the big twenty-one…another milestone come to pass, it’s definitely got me thinking of how much I’ve changed since starting my life in the city. I don’t feel like the same person I was before, but in a good way. In these three years, I’ve learned so much and realized so many things…and I have to say, I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything in the world, cause they have led me to the person that I am today.
Starting my freshman year back in 2012, I felt like I had a lot of unresolved issues carrying over from high school. I can’t say high school was the best time for me and there were definitely times I hurt deeply, but I wanted a fresh start–and what better way to start than in the most inspiring city in the world. I brought with me my hopes, dreams, fears, insecurities…and my love for fashion.
