#ThrowbackThursday to my Conde Nast name tag for my first of multiple interviews with @TeenVogue earlier this year. -
When I think back on all my hard work over the years, internships, fashion columns, etc, I always have to remind myself why I am where I am. I thought I’d move to New York the moment I graduated… But you know what they always say, if you wanna hear God laugh tell him your plans! I still have so much ahead of me. I’m not a quitter, and I know I’m more than capable! The right opportunity will come my way. I just need to keep my head up and remember that God is putting my goals on the back burner for a little bit. He’s teaching me love, selflessness, patience and strength! I’m focusing on being here for the love of my life, who is watching his dad struggle in a battle against cancer day after day. It’s not failure or missed opportunity that is holding me here! It’s those phone calls, texts, family dinners and hugs that reassure me I’m where I’m supposed to be.
Doors open and close for a reason. God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle! 💜
