What’s the biggest life lesson you’ve learned lately? I’ve always envied people who “have it easy.” And that is something I have always worked to change. Not to compare myself to others. Everyone always struggles with their own internal conflicts and that is natural! In the past three years I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, achieved my three year anniversary at a growing fashion company in NYC, and I am now starting my own sustainable fashion clothing line that will be produced in the USA and launch this year. It’s important to remind yourself of all the accomplishments you have made in life. Everyone is special in their own way and it is vital to show your strength! Don’t ever compare yourself to anyone else. It took me a long time to realize how important this advice is but I am so much happier because of it.
