Fashion has been one of the biggest parts of my life every since I was young. There is something special about wearing that perfect outfit and feeling confident who you are because you can rock those skinny jeans or those extremely high stilettos. Although clothes are an avenue of expression to me, they also convey messages about my identity.I wear my midnight black suede platform shoes that cradle my ankles, when giving the Veterans Day Speech to my school, revealing my poise and my confident demeanor as a leader. And of course, all who know me recognize me when I wear my necktie, filled with intricate designs splashing in vibrant colors of all hues. I often wear this signature piece when cheering on my high school football team, expressing my spunky, spontaneous, and playful attitude. My outfits, that may seem over the top to some people, all tell a story. They tell a narrative of who I am, who I want to be, and my experiences that have shaped me.
