How many people wind up getting their dream job? Not all of us, unfortunately. But somehow I got lucky: This past year, I went from blogging part-time to working as a full-time fashion and body positivity reporter.
I'd always dreamt of being able to do what I do now, and one of the most frequent questions I get is about how to start a career in fashion. Here's how it happened for me.
My mission was to be a style blogger. The problem: I lacked confidence. I was far from being comfortable with myself. I NEVER took full-body photos before I started blogging.
I was so uncomfortable with my weight and appearance that I routinely untagged myself from any social media photos that showed my body.
After two years of wishing and planning, I finally found the courage to start my blog, which I called Tiny Red Shoes.
A few months later, Nicolette tweeted that she was looking for girls to model in a live show. I mentioned it to my sister (jokingly) and she insisted that I send in my photos. I did and I was selected!
