For me I struggled with being a dark skinned black woman. I feel like as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace my skin and I love my skin and it’s what sets me a part from other women. So I love it now. But when I was young it was something I struggled with.
I think when I moved to New York and I realized I was on my own, I just realized you have to do what makes you happy and just not care about what anyone thinks. Just live your life for you. I think that’s where you find true happiness. Follow your dreams, think what you want to think, eat what you want to eat.
Right now I work in retail. I’m 20-years-old and I should be in college. All of my friends are in college getting their degrees and stuff and I just realized that that’s not the best route for me. I can still be successful without going to college even though that’s something I still want to achieve but I realized my path and the way that I do things is not the same as other people. If I go to college, then I’ll probably go when I’m 25 or 30 or something like that. But I’m not going to do it the way everybody else does or expects you to do it.
What I want
I want to definitely do something in fashion or on the creative side. I’m also a realist. I just know that I love clothes and image and I think something like that but I’m not honestly sure so we’re just going to see how it goes.
