My fashion/style depicts my mood, my personality, and the essence of who I am at that moment. It is an art of self-expression. One day I’m an edgy rock star and the next a classy chic diva! As far as I can remember, I have never been afraid or intimidated to dress to my mood, no matter how non-conformist it may have been. In middle school during my “punk-rock” days it was the green hair, fishnet stockings, Metallica t-shirts, spikes, chains on my pants, etc. I did it all. My #inspistyle is to dress to emit confidence, to never to be fearful of being judged, and to be a role model to other girls inspiring them to be strong and brave.
2. What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
The mind is everything. What you think you become. –Buddha
3. When I’m having a bad day I usually…
Go shopping! Everyone loves some retail therapy. Or listen to music and draw some ideas in my sketchbook.
4. What’s something you can say genuinely makes you happy?
Helping other people really makes me happy. Even something as small as a compliment or words of encouragement to brighten someone else’s day and lift their spirits up. Sometimes a small act of kindness can make a huge difference. “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” –Audrey Hepburn
