"It's about the person you are and the vibe you get."
Sharing his summer style and also his educational memories over the past 4 years, DeVonn is a recent graduate of the prestigious Biotechnology High School in Monmouth County, New Jersey. He finds that his experience with school is quite unique. This young man came from the small town of Keyport where he performed academically at the top of his class until attending Biotech where students are hand picked. Although in a comparable physical environment, mentally this was hardly the same with students employing different methods to succeed in an extremely competitive environment. DeVonn found that he went from a big fish in a little pond to a little fish in a big pond, a challenging change for anybody.
Fashion evolves and grows as a whole but also on an individual level. Style takes years to develop and even when it has, there's still much more left to discover. Today's June fashion featured individual is Malik, a young streetwear enthusiast. He wasn't always this way though, resenting fashion as a kid and wanting to just get dressed as quickly as possible in order to play. His parents had a feeling that eventually Malik would take an interest in apparel some day, but he didn't entirely believe them. Then, Malik hit his teenage years where changes to who he was changed his interest in fashion too. Malik began to ask his parents for new clothes and shoes especially Nike's and Jordan's proving their previous hunch about their son correct. It just goes to show that we never really know what the next couple of years have in store for us and that sometimes, our parents do know what they're talking about.
When you pour your all into something you're passionate about, not a single ounce of energy is wasted. Originally a soccer player, Marissa, today's spring into summer fashionista, eventually switched to a sport she'd never heard of until her teenage years, field hockey. It was a cool yet quirky game which did not come as easy as soccer did, but Marissa was ready for the challenge. No journey ever goes smoothly, and she's faced her set of difficulties. This athlete's broken a nose and taken a concussion which have halted seasons for her. Yet, the reward far outweighs the risk. Through blood, sweat and tears, Marissa has been a varsity player and starter since freshman year and was awarded for being the best scoring offensive player.
