Quick photos from my first few months in NY. Ohhh what a tease.
I feel like I come from a pretty average background Meaning, I finished high school, went to collage, got my degrees and was told the world was mine to concur. Then I moved to NY and realized that might not be so true after all. I was a 4.0, triple major in school, granted, I didn't study anything to do with fashion or journalism, I figured I was well rounded and all me professors said my degrees would get me anywhere. Theatre taught me about talking to people, presenting myself, working on a team. French: opened up a new world and the French are big in Fashion, thought it might be useful. Costume Design: that's the closest I got to fashion. When I showed up here, I was not aware that no one in NY takes you seriously unless you have a NY Internship on your resume. Lucky for me, I moved for an internship. Had I just showed up here thinking, cool, I'm a go get myself a job now, I would have a major bridge to cross. The struggle now the internship is over... get another unpaid internship so I can gain some more industry knowledge and work 5 to 6 days a week so I have barley enough money for rent...
In an industry and age where we bust through school to get a job, it's difficult to allow myself the time I need to 'get my ducks in a row'.
