"Sometimes, your dream job is not the first job you land out of college. Maybe you don’t know what really you want to do with your life and that’s ok. There are trial and error that happens in your early 20’s, especially entering a new industry. Going off into the unknown and building your life can be scary and rewarding."
"I am happy to have the life where my work and play intertwine. My blog has been a platform and my golden ticket into industry events where I network with professionals as Kent’s PR girl. Some of my biggest PR projects include The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nylon Magazine and Taryn Manning from OITNB. I truly have my dream job and dream life."
"My love for fashion stemmed from my earlier years when I wanted to craft the world around me. My dolls were dressed in outfits I hand stitched. As a teen, I began to alter my clothing to make the styles unique. At JMW high school, I focused on fine arts, especially acrylic painting. There, I won the Congressional Art Award for my painting of Historic Slater Mill, the first textile mill in the USA. After school, I would often watch Project Runway and be inspired by the fashion designers. Their pieces were truly wearable art. That is when I decided I wanted to pursue fashion as a career. For my senior project, I designed and promoted a 16 piece collection with the help of a mentor."
"I enjoy inspiring people to follow their dreams. In my earlier years, I use to lay awake at night researching all the places I wanted to travel to before I died. I made those dreams come true when I backpacked Europe. We build the life we want to live with will power and ambition."
"I specialize in Public Relations and Sales. Sales are the foundation of the company. This will be our second year selling at the Grand Central Holiday Fair in NYC. I am very excited to be living in New York and selling. Kent started his company as a lemonade stand model and did not use venture capital. If he wanted to grow, he had to make the sales to back it up. He went from creating bags in his basement to a beautiful studio at Hope Artiste village and selling to over 200 stores. We are also selling internationally. I am very proud of Kent."
