Since I was around 14 I have been passionate about high fashion, I've read books, studied big houses like ChloΓ©, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Dior, my dad was even sweet enough to subscribe to literally every fashion magazine out there so I could read and learn more. My dads endless support for my clothing addiction and magazine addiction helped turn me in the direction I am in today. Both him and my mom encouraged me to follow my dreams of one day working in the fashion industry. Today I study Textiles, merchandising, and communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am a photographer for the University's fashion magazine ( I got into photography as a way to express myself and try to put my foot in the door using social media platforms like Instagram and Tumblr. 

I cry when my anxiety kicks in, I get overwhelmed and feel like I am not good enough to succeed in the fashion industry. I have family and friends that comfort me and remind me that I am good enough and everyone should follow their dreams. It's days like today when I wake up and find this e-mail about my photos being featured and an article being written about me, that reassures me dreams do come true.
