How would you describe your style?
What makes you feel most confident and beautiful?
I feel the most confident and beautiful when I am surrounded by friends who encourage me and make me laugh. I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by solid groups of women over the past decade who have built me up in a Christ-like fashion and held me accountable in my walk with the Lord. When spending time with these friends, I feel the best about myself and my place in life. As far as a fashion-beauty, I love for my hair to be long and flowy, to have on shoes with a heel/wedge, and to accessorize with earrings. I never go without earrings, and most often wear pearls or hoops. An outfit is not complete without them.
If people could only know one thing about you what would you want it to be?
That I love the Lord and crave relationships. Personally, I think the two go hand-in-hand. My life would be nothing without my relationship with my Heavenly Father, but along with that, it would be so different without all of the amazing friendships that I have. I LOVE to make new friends and I love to have long, in-depth conversations with complete strangers, leaving us as life-long friends by the end of the talk. I love to learn from others and be challenged by their knowledge, especially in relationships that are rooted in Christ and can teach me not only earthly knowledge, but eternal wisdom. Without Christ, I would be nothing, and that is the most important truth in my life.
Do you have a piece of clothing that you can’t live without? If so what and why?
I don’t think I have a specific clothing item that I have a specific attachment to, but I kind of go through phases with my clothes. This past semester, I had a beige sweater that I bought from TJ Maxx in the 11th grade that made its re-entry into my life. I wore it over tank tops, t-shirts, long-sleeves, and more. It went in my purse from place to place, just in case I got cold or wanted the security of slipping it on over my outfit. I have a pair of Pali Hawaii sandals that I ordered for $9 off Amazon a few months ago and I wear them everyday. My two most consistent items are my gold-cross necklace and my Sheila Fajl earrings… I wear those every single day, no matter the outfit, no matter the style.
What’s one thing you like most about being you?
I feel as though I connect with people quickly and easily. My travels around the world and exposure to different people and places has allowed me to participate in countless different activities, and I think that it has made me more interested to learn about what other people are interested in and relate to them on whatever level I can. If I meet someone at a party and learn their favorite color, middle name, or a dream of theirs, I most likely will go home thinking that we are best friends and genuinely looking forward to the next time I get to see them. My love for getting to know others has led me to some really beautiful relationships, such as with Caragh, and it has brought about my most treasured blessings.
