"Being a younger sibling of a high achieving person sets an exceptionally high bar."
When we're put in front a crowd we have two choices: to let our fears take over or face them. Not everyone's born with a drive to just take the spotlight, but it can be taught over time with proper exposure. Today's April and spring streetwear fashionista is Yasmeen who's the sister of blog regular, Sarah. However, the younger comes with her own story to tell which is one of growing acting experiences. Yasmeen has developed a love of performing and acting. It's one of few things that allows her to up and counter her shyness. By speaking in front of large crowds, this puts her out of her comfort zone. We applaud her because a life lived out of the comfort zone is a progressive one.
To come out of your shell is a process that differs from person to person. There are those who are born ready to put themselves out there, and on the contrary, there are those who take a bit of time to really blossom. The most quiet people as a kid can one day become the most outgoing adults. All it takes is time. Angelina, whose presenting her own fashion style for today, admits that she use to be very shy and quiet because she feared being judged by the others around her. Kids would pick and pester Angelina back in her young years. As a result, she was afraid to be herself. This was all until Angelina reached high school, and like a click of a switch, she began to started to become a whole new person.
To fully understand what it means to be part of humanity, it is important to study and understand both our culture and our history which often get intertwined with each other. Juliette, today's April fashion featured individual, is well versed in each category and carries a vast knowledge of the eras that came before but is also in tune with her French heritage. Soon off to college, Juliette wishes to study in Canada which has a significant French-speaking population. Her love of history has also caused her to hopefully focus on that during her higher education, and someday, she wishes to help preserve artifacts of our anthropology which have the power to explain and recollect our human existence.
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.
The energy granted to a younger generation is a gift, and some people like Daniella, today's March fashion featured individual, harness that gift. Dani put her energy into her work where she hoped it'd pay off and grant her access, by smart saving, to buy the things she wanted. After two years of work, Daniella was able to her first car, a 2006 Honda Accorda in beautiful condition. It may not have been new, but in this day and age, perhaps buying things used is the best economical option. The most important part though is that Dani's very happy to have finally gotten her dream car; however, it was not without sacrifice. Nothing in life is free, and through hours and hours, Dani has learned the true meaning of hard work.
