You cannot separate your identity from your perspective. To be honest, blogging and sharing myself with others has always been a mental challenge for me. From a young age I was taught to be diligent, humble, introspective, and to value knowledge over supposedly "frivolous" things. The idea of fashion was so far removed from those values that I equated it with superficiality, narcissism, and other qualities I disdained. But with age, I've realized that your entire world is formed by your lens, your perspective. Instead of viewing fashion as something superficial, I choose to view it as a challenge of creativity and confidence. Similarly, I'm trying to look at my blog as a platform to push myself to be more open, to take risks, and to hopefully instill some inspiration.
