Today I am a college graduate.
Four years ago I moved to New York with a dream. I knew no one and I knew nothing about the industry I wanted to enter. All I had was a college acceptance letter and a ridiculous amount of ambition to do anything to not fail. I chased my connections for internship after internship, I served coffee to pay for groceries for the better half of the beginning of living here in New York. All of the all nighters, all of the tears, all of worry and stress… It was all worth it. I am here, I am a college graduate and I am employed into a position that I have created for myself for one of the world’s leading womenswear designers. I have worked so hard for today and I am so incredibly thankful to be here sharing this moment, my dream, with all of you. Thank you to all of you for reading and listening and engaging for the past four years and a huge thank you to my friends at Tumblr because without this platform, none of this would have been possible. And a huge thank you to my family, especially my mom and dad - my champions.
On to the next one.
