As much as we love to create art, it is equally important to appreciate it. Once in a while, it's important to put down our pencils and brushes and observe what came before in order to understand what is still yet to come. Each year during the spring, today's men's vintage fashion and March fashion featured individual, Tyler, would visit the Museum of Modern Art located in Midtown Manhattan with his family and observe the marvelous creations of the past. As an art lover, Tyler understands the statement every piece portrays, and it's hard for him to see such works go underappreciated these days.
America was built and pushed forward by immigrants who bring in a piece of their home country when they settle here. Eventually, their children become a mix of both American and that of their mother country, inheriting both cultures from their family and their environment. Today's March fashion featured individual, Julianna, is a daughter of Argentinian descent whose father was born there. Growing up, her father only ever spoke to her Spanish, and he still does today. In order for his children to grasp their culture beyond the language, Julianna's dad brought the family back to his native home where the kids received a greater understanding of the world their father grew up in.
As she blended bits of Betty Crocker cake mix with Oreo bits and chocolate chips flying around the kitchen, Ocheze, today's spring apparel and March fashion featured individual, had inadvertently spurred a life long love for baking. Although it didn't come out the way she intended, Ocheze and her other seventh grade friends tasted a new work or art. This would be one of many creations the young chef would soon make. Beginning somewhere, Ocheze first used prepared cake mixes that required very little effort but eventually worked her way up to making things solely from scratch. From then on, her baking repertoire has only been expanding. As a girl who's involved with cheer leading, science, and theatre, this passion would only add to her collection of talents (that by the way, got her into Stanford).
First we learn to crawl, and then we learn to walk. Once we learn to walk, we learn to run. Some people turn that human instinct of running into a passion including today's March fashion featured individual, Julie. With a mother who ran track during high school and college, it wouldn't but long until Julie's mom would encourage her own children to begin doing so as well. Along with her older brother, Julie has made running into a life long love and is constantly competing all year round. The athlete knows that on the track is were she belongs since it fills her desire of being fit and in shape. It's also given Julia an even stronger connection to her family and comments that she's a perfect puzzle piece to running.
When we first step onto the field, sometimes we're making a life long commitment. Kacey, who is today's February fashion featured individual, began her soccer career right after she could take her first steps. Since then, she hasn't quit playing and has been participating on high school and league teams. Next year, Kacey will be playing Division One soccer in college. The sport has been a huge part of her life, and she's definitely had to make a lot of sacrifices for her schedule. Yet, it's all paid off in the end. It's all about pushing yourself to the limit and striving to be the best; however, at the core, any sport should first be fun. We wouldn't do it if we didn't first love it, and this is what Kacey loves to do.
People have passions. It can be math, writing, science, or in the case of Julia, today's fashion featured individual, it can be art. We've previously explored her love of this creative area but she has given an even further and in depth look as to what art means to her and how art can encompass more than we think. Julia's passion has built her up in ways that a regular education could not, and art has given her a medium in which to strength other areas of her life. Importantly, through her expressive courses, Julia has learned about one of the greatest tools to improvement: criticism. There's no more being complacent.
Hitting the keys of the piano has always been an escape physically, mentally, and emotionally for today's February fashion featured individual, Priscilla, and there is no other place she'd rather be. Priscilla's an exceptionally smart young woman, but her true passions lie beyond the paper and pencil in the classroom. For her, music is far more than just a hobby; it's a vital part of her lifestyle. However, she's had her share of doubts and hardships with playing piano. As a nearly fully self taught player, there's a lot of obstacles when the only person to motivate Priscilla is herself, but she always finds a way to overcome whatever is thrown her way.
Her name is Hadassah, and besides being today's February fashion featured individual, she's quite the force to be reckoned with. With a full ride to Alderson Broaddus University, Hadassah is both a full time athlete and student who's currently studying mass communications and public relations. On a daily basis, she has to juggle being the school's sports commentator, having a job, at least five hours of softball practice, and her classes. It's never easy, but her hard work and devotion is already landing her future job opportunities at FOX sports and ESPN. Hadassah's presence in college has also been able to cement the her new nickname there: Das.
Once we are graced with music once in our lives, we tend to stick with it forever. It by no means has to be our profession, but no matter where we go, it'll always be with us. Emily, today's spring fashion inspiration individual, has loved singing since she could talk. Like many of us, she grew up listening to Disney stars and watching American Idol and wanted to be just like them. By the age of seven, Emily created a small band with other girls and was writing her own music about her crushes and friendships. Through the years, her passion has only been growing, and will definitely continue to do so as her life progresses.
The sweetness of a triumph can never truly be felt if there was no hardship that preceded it. Life is roller-coaster, and it has its ups, downs, loops, and spins that can throw us off course. Today's January fashion and teen winter fashion individual, Sara, she was faced with two sets of disappointing news in a single day. One after the other, Sara found out that she didn't make her high school's science academy and that her close cousin was diagnosed with caner. It was a grief-filled and more than disappointing day, but two weeks later, it'd all be turned around, and Sarah's spirits would be lifted again. Soon, the light would shine through the rainy clouds once more.
