Dear Little Sister...2017 Teen Fashion Week!
Dear Little Sister,
Hi guys!! Oh my gosh y'all were so sweet to ask me how "Teen Fashion Week" was! I have to say I can not belieeeeeve all of the things we have achieved this year! Look at us making goals and watching them come true! You and I have some amazing things coming our way, because we believe that we have amazing things to offer the world.
I had so many expectations for Dallas' Teen Event and I was pleasantly surprised! There was creativity, professionalism and over-all great fun. I can't wait to show you what I learned from this year!
1)Don't be Afraid to Stand Out
Did you know originally I was just going to go with a plain simple dress? Until I realized-hey! Where's the fun in that? There's nothing wrong with allowing people to see you. I had a message to share, and I couldn't do that by being afraid. So I chose the biggest brightest thing in my closet, and I had a blast! You have something important too Hun-don't be afraid to share it.
Tip:Allow yourself just once to wear something bold. As long as it is appropriate, you'll never know until you try! Remember-you are WONDERFULLY made!
2)Kindness goes a Long Way
This incredibly talented group stayed with me in my heart for days. Not just because of their incredible talent, but because of their hospitality and kindness. I passed by a few of them periodically through the night and every time they had something nice to say and spoke to me with such respect!
I felt like such a proud Big Sister watching their performance. They used their gift of dance and performance to bring awareness to domestic abuse(which is when someone is hurting their partner in a relationship). They told a beautiful story of how everyone deserves to be loved and I was so honored to watch them perform.
3)Always Be Prepared
If you told me that I was going to be interviewed---I actually would've been excited! I chose to go into the event prepared with a quick speech on who I was, what I was representing and how people could contact me. It is so important to be ready. Take a few moments to strategize before a big event so that you feel your most confident!
4)Age is just a Number
I met so many wonderful and kind people at this event. Everyone was just excited to share their gifts and talents. Here (above) I met this gorgeous young woman who has a natural talent for modeling!
I also met an outstanding star. I would love to introduce you to a new member of our family--Serenity Hughes!! Serenity is an up and coming fashion designer. And guess what-she's only 12 years old!! Idk, should we have her on a podcast?? Let me know what you think below!
5)2 is always better than 1
Of course I had Jojo with me!! Never forget, your true friends always have your back!!! We had a great time! Did you see us there?
Tip: if ever you're nervous to go somewhere, bring your best buddy! You'll have a great time no matter what!
