I contemplated whether or not it would be appropriate to create a post centered around the latest happenings in my life but in this case, I'm willing to make an exception. The reason that I initially began blogging was to hone my skills as a journalist. Before I ever contemplated becoming a blogger, I knew that journalism was a profession that I wanted to pursue. It just so happens that my love for fashion and style ties into that as well, hence why I ultimately would like to pursue a career in fashion journalism.

One of my goals for 2015 include visiting New York and just a few days ago, I received something in my inbox that would make this goal a reality. A few weeks ago, I decided to apply to attend Teen Vogue Fashion University, an event where some of the fashion industry's top names share their career experiences + tips on how to break into the industry with those interested in pursuing a career in fashion. Not only that, but it is a great way to connect and network with like-minded individuals. This is my third time applying to attend but unfortunately, finances have not allowed me to do so in the past.

As a result, I decided to create a Go Fund Me campaign in hopes of being able to receive donations towards affording this trip. To me, it's a long shot because I never thought about creating a Go Fund Me campaign before. BUT, seeing that attending Teen Vogue Fashion University is something that I truly want to make a reality this year, I figured that I don't have anything to lose. It would be so much to me if I am able to attend this event and it would mean even more if others are willing to help support one of my goals. IF, and that is only IF, you are interested in supporting me then be sure to click this link.

I sincerely thank you in advance for your time as well as your consideration.
