I’m not the same person I was a few months ago.
I came to Washington not 100% sure I wanted to be there, but little did I know, God placed me there to grow.
In January, I posted “Bloom Where You Are Planted“, which was my very first style post in DC. I talked about how I was finally learning how to take public transportation and learning to cook for myself so I don’t die! Haha but it was more than just that.
Coming to Washington gave me an independence and a confidence that I only would have gotten had I left my comfort zone at home.
I made fashion relevant for myself here outside of where politics, not fashion is king. I’ve connected with the top media professionals in the industry. And, I’ve met the most magnificent people who I have come to cherish so so much!
They say your twenties (or whatever) is the time to be selfish. It’s the time to think for yourself and about yourself always. And I agree to some point but not completely.
It’s the time to learn the facets of yourself, yes. But it’s also the time you expose yourself to new surroundings and show people who you are, what you want, and how you can help them. It’s the time where you must put yourself in situations where there’s no other option but to grow!
Yes, what you have can benefit others. And I’m not talking about material possession. I’m referring to who you are.
So don’t be stingy…share your petals with the world.
