The only way of getting over the fear of the unknown is to accept it. Those of the words of today featured April fashion featured individual, Gabby. She's come back to the blog to share a few words of how true happiness is a mental state. No amount of material goods or success can put a smile on someone's face until they can truly appreciate it. It's ironic how the richest people in the world who have everything still long for more but the people who have very little can be the ones who are the most content. We are also a society that worries very much especially about the past which cannot be changed instead of looking forward to future or living in the moment.
An outfit can be only as good as the attitude behind it. Anybody can rock anything as long as there's confidence in the look. Confidence in a look is perhaps the single most important thing that can propel a look from 0 to 100 especially if the goal is to impress someone. Today's March fashion featured individual for this rainy spring day is no other than Eric, an intelligent young man with ambition and style. These days, Eric is out to look his best and in a couple of cases, to catch the attention of girl. Who can blame him? We've all been there, but with a bit of positivity, Eric's got all he needs to turn heads.
Originally born in Brooklyn in 1999, James, today's March fashion featured individual, has his early roots back in New York. However, he would be truly shaped into the person he is now thanks to his true home of Matawan, New Jersey. His parents moved into the small town when James was two leaving the urban metropolis that was New York and hoping to give their son a better future and place to grow up. James is grateful that they were right, and Matawan has built up his manhood and discipline. Here, James is able to receive the support and encouragement on an individual scale that sometimes can't be found when there are thousands of other kids to attend to such as in the city.
Winter's made a comeback as we enter into mid-March. Yet, no matter the season or weather, it's always a good time to give back to our communities. Katie, today's source of late winter fashion inspiration, talks about a time in the beginning of the season when she had the opportunity to make the day of a few little kids who've lived through tough experiences growing up. All the way back before Christmas, Katie, along with her friends in their school's civic leadership program, were able to "adopt" families from the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation and give the children, Meghan and David, gifts they'll never forget.
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.
What was once a new year seems to be moving fast. It's more than halfway past February, and before we know it, it's already March. Then, right before our eyes, it's summer again, everyone's favorite season. For today's men's outdoor fashion featured individual, Alvaro, his summer plans are already in the works, and he's counting down the days. Along with his older brother, Carlo, Alvaro plans to explore and adventure around the nation from east to west, north to south. For just a single country, there seems to be a whole world of activities that can fill a lifetime. Hopefully, the memories today's young man gets to experience are memories that'll stick with him for a lifetime.
It's a whole new world to explore out there on the west coast of the United States, and for today's February fashion featured individual, Marissa, it's a place she could spend the rest of her life. During her last spring break, Marissa took the opportunity to visit California, and it gave her an indescribable feeling. Being that she's coming to the end of high school, Marissa also went around the West Coast's best colleges including UCLA and Stanford. The dream of living in California and receiving a higher education there has motivated Marissa to push herself in her studies now in order to get that acceptance letter. For Marissa, it makes her heart drop and her chest tighten at the thought of being denied a college life there. She's never cared about anything so much, and the Golden State is the place where she finds peace and solace.
Everyone in the United States salutes to the same flag, but with this country lies very distinct regions whose characteristics shape the lifestyle of the people living there. Today's February fashion and teen winter fashion individual, Andrew, spent the first few years of his life in the hustle and bustle of living in New Jersey, just under New York City. Although quite a while ago, Andrew remembers when his whole life got flipped upside down because his family moved from the Northeast to the South. His new home had a different pace, different people, and different attitudes. Andrew calls it a place with more cows and animals than people!
I tend to hold a high faith in the world. As I look across the lake on a brisk January day, I gravitate towards believing that the trees and the birds that inhabit the area will still be here one hundred years down the line. By then, I don't think I'll be alive, but maybe my children and grandchildren will be, should I be blessed with having any. We live on a beautiful planet, and our primary concern in this life time must be to preserve what it holds because if we don't take care of it, it won't be safe anymore. As I said, I'l like to think that we will learn take care it. I'd like to think that we will turn it around before its too late, and I'd like to think that the generations to come will enjoy the graces of nature someday.
One of the most important tools we have is education. Too many people take it for granted and don't understand that in many other countries or even in places in the United States, decent school systems do not exist. Today's men's outdoor fashion featured individual, Ishan, speaks of how education has played a pivotal role in shaping the person he is today as well as the person he will be tomorrow. Ishan knows that learning and knowledge is power, and while he is young, he's going to indulge in as much of it as possible. One of the greatest passions anyone can be given is certainly the desire to learn, and Ishan embodies just that.
