The road I’m on

In my opinion, the only part of one’s history that’s important is the one you make for yourself. For that reason, I won’t be mentioning where I grew up, what I did during my childhood, or the times I had during my stay in the mind-numbing institution we refer to as “public school.” Instead, I feel like my real life started when I became an adult and left the nest to pursue a higher education.

When I first came to Texas Tech I was certain that, after several years as the Editor-in-Chief of one of the best high school newspapers in the nation, I was on the path to becoming a serious journalist. I had always scoffed at less than hard-hitting news, and silly Cosmopolitan-esque magazines. However, what I never told anyone was that I was a closet addict to fashion. I can hardly remember a time in my life when I wasn’t gripping my copy of Vogue like it was the last Willy Wonka bar and the golden ticket was yet to be found, scanning the glossy pages, practically drooling over the feats of craftsmanship and design. Finally, after encouragement from my friends and family, I admitted to myself that the fashion industry was simply where I had to be. It was then that I took on a double major in journalism and fashion retailing (which is essentially a double major is fashion merchandising and marketing) with a minor in fashion design, and I’ve never been happier.

Upon finishing both my bachelor’s degrees, I’ll be getting my Master’s in journalism and going out into the ever-sensationalized “real world” to become a fashion journalist. I’ve made a commitment to achieving my dream job: Editor-in-Chief of Vogue magazine. So, look out Anna Wintour, I’m coming for your job.
