My name is Kristen and I'm so glad you're here. Let me start by telling you a little about my self.

Fun fact, I graduated fashion school five years ago with a diploma in Fashion Techniques an Design. Then my life took a turn. I didn't end up in the career path that I dreamed of. I actually ended up in the banking industry. Now I know what you're thinking, BANKING?!?! How in the world did I pull that off? Well, when you just graduate from college, life comes at you fast. Bills, bill, bills and more bills.Also, I only had a diploma in fashion design with no industry experience, so my only option was to find an internship which would be most likely unpaid. So my plan was to get a full time paying job but still work in fashion on the side until I can save enough money to do my own thing. Long story short, I applied for a position at the bank and little did I know I would spend five years of my life there.

Within these five years, I learned that doing what you love is way better than wasting your life away at a job that makes you feel mundane. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed being able to pay my bills and buy fancy things but not at the expense of not being able to unleash my creativity.

So this year, I decided that I'm going to reclaim my time and take my passion seriously. Since I've been out of the industry for so long, I decided to take a post graduate course to insure that my knowledge and skills are up to date.

This was the best decision I ever made! Part of the reason I didn't end up in my dream career path is because I never thought I was good enough. But going back to school showed me that this is what I'm good at. I managed to get straight A's in my first semester as a full time student while still working 40hr a week! If that isn't a success story and a sign that I need to pursue fashion, I don't know what is!

Hopefully, I make it this time around and I guess you'll have to stay tune and see.

Bye for now...
