As a younger child, which seems to be a lifetime ago, I dreamed of a career in fashion. Over the years the dream morphed into dreams of many different careers.
My ultimate dream was initially to be a fashion designer. I would spend hours sketching glamorous evening dresses and telling everyone who was willing to listen to the dreams of a starry-eyed child how my designs would one day grace the pages of my favourite fashion magazines and the runways of Fashion Weeks all over the world.
By the time I started high school, my adoration for writing and for language in general became the instigator behind my new dream of becoming the editor of a powerhouse fashion magazine. Women such as Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani became my ultimate role models.
As my high school career progressed, the unexpected happened. I fell deeply in love with science and a dream that, just a few months before I had to make a colossal decision on the subjects I will take during my senior years, would have seemed utterly insane to me built a home in my heart. I strayed from my dreams of a career in fashion journalism for a while when I came to the conclusion that I wanted to be a medical doctor.
While I appreciated the challenge of taking subjects which I wasn’t naturally good at, I soon realised that my love for fashion still burned too furiously within my heart to abandon it for a career in science.
Blogging, for the most part, has been a major inspiration in my realisation that I still want to be prominent figure in the fashion journalism industry. Follow my journey.
