I'm dead set on starting my career early. That's the great thing about loving your job, you will be motivated to wake up everyday knowing that you are perusing your dreams. Living in a small town is not easy when it comes to wanting to gain experience in a field that doesn't have an influence on your community. Sure, I could be a doctor, a teacher, or a lawyer.. but if I don't LOVE it, then what's the point? I'm not going to spend everyday doing something I hate.
I've been reaching out to people in the fashion industry, hoping to get advice on how I can get a head start on my career. How can I do this..being in high school...in a small town? I sent in my question to Nikki Phillippi.. I love her! She is so real & I value what she says. I'm so happy she answered my question. Although, I mentioned my blog in my message, I suppose they overlooked it.. many people in the comments say to start a blog.. haha. One step ahead.
I'm planning on going to college at FIT in NYC to be a fashion stylist. If any of you know someone or have went to college for fashion please contact me! I would love to hear all about it!
Well, I must be doing pretty good then.. I'm connecting with those who share my passion, reaching out to those already in the business, and have my future planned. Everything Nikki suggested.. That makes me feel a little bit better. :)
Watch to see Nikki answer my question.
Let me know your thoughts/suggestions. Are you planning on a career in fashion?
If you watched the video or have read my previous posts, I'm also trying to get into modeling.. Anyone have experience?
