Sitting in a hotel room in Phoenix, Arizona, while on a business trip. I was trying to write my personal statement for law school applications. It was so laborious, so forced, and I was having the worst time of it that I decided for some mental reprieve to put it aside, and instead write why I wanted to design clothes and build a brand. That narrative came so natural that after an hour it was done. I realized, if this is what I truly want to do with my life, why would I wait another minute? I sent that essay in to Parsons the next week and moved to New York to begin my study of fashion design that Fall.
