I am officially a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, and it really hasn’t quite sunk in yet. I can’t believe that I don’t have a million and one things to worry about right now. I have accepted a position as a freelance writer for Style Blazer so look out for my articles on there. Of course I will still be updating Not Carrie Bradshaw, now even more than before. Since I no longer have to worry about school and interning, I can devote more time to writing and developing my craft.
I feel like I’ve come through one phase of my journey successfully, and now the sky truly is the limit. I always thought that phrase to be overs used, but I genuinely feel that way. There were so many obstacles that presented themselves to make this seem like an impossible feat, and I can’t believe that it’s done. The confidence that comes from achieving something through adversity is like no other. I don’t think that graduating Magna Cum Laude would have as much significance if it weren’t for the personal and financial obstacles. I feel like I can do anything at this point in my life, and I don’t expect for any of it to be easy. I once shied away from what was difficult, thinking that if it were for me it would be easier to achieve. I now see the error in that way of thinking. I welcome challenges now, because they make victory that much sweeter.
