Closing Another Chapter of My Life




Graduating from Uni has never felt so bittersweet, but at the same I can't seem to find or feel any emotions at all. I knew a long time ago, it would be over someday, and that day was March 16/2018 where I officially got my diploma as a Professional Fashion Designer. It's incredible to look back and see where it all started, and it was thanks to this blog of mine I created years ago as a way to find out what my true passions and interests were, little did I know it would come in handy and I'd feel so thankful for that. 

My experiences at Uni were a lot, a countless of them; I went through so many things, my life and journey kind of felt like a roaller coaster, so many ups and downs, I wanted to give up when I was just starting out my career; yes, first semester was not that good for me, then I found myself so frustrated asking so many why's, went through many sleepless nights, stress took all over, lack of inspiration most of the time, cried happy and sad tears, and then there were always little big thriumphs and victories that cheered me up to keep on going. Wow, what a journey and crazy ride it was. 

I'm proud of what I've achieved so far in such a short amount of period time; and now, I look forward to what God has planned for me and also to more exciting journeys! A lesson? It took my university years to overcome my fears, silly fears that are just that, fears! Little by little I've gained so much confidence, I've learned to believe more in myself, forget about what others think is good and just go ahead with what's in my heart and follow my instinct; this is something I have always struggled a lot with, I learned all of it the bad/harsh way, believe me when I said I went through so many things but luckily that helped to shape me to do better in the future and trust my skills and talent.

My heart is so full and I'm so thankful for my loved ones, family and friends for their constant support and being always there for me! I appreciated every word of wisdom that came out of their mouths as tips and advices! To my followers who have been here following all these adventures since day one and have been a support as well!  I just closed a chapter but here's to a brand-new one and many more blessings are waiting for me!
