Chamonix, France. March 2013. 

Coming from someone who thoroughly enjoys awkward situations, I find it rather bizarre to write about myself in a blog. For those who know me best I love a good Vine, Instagram, Tweet or SnapChat. On the other hand, writing or blogging is a genre of social media I have yet to dabble into. With an exciting summer in the South of France that is about to commence, I thought it would be a lovely challenge to write about my experiences and share them with those who are the least bit interested. I apologize in advanced for any grammar errors. It has been a while (after all, I do go to art school). 

For those who don't know me (or think they know me) let me tell you a little about myself. I am originally from Long Island New York and grew up in the sunshine state of Florida. I am currently studying fashion marketing at SCAD in Savannah, GA, USA. In the fall of 2010 I decided to pursue an education specific towards fashion simply because it embodies and reflects the political, societal and economical times throughout the world. Fashion is seen through art, architecture, and interior spaces all encompassing the best and worst of times. As much as I enjoy studying fashion, I do not think there is a more important form of education than getting out there and experiencing how different societies function. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel all around the world considering my wonderful mother is a retired airline employee. My favorite things in life other than traveling would have to be the sun, the snow and the water. 

This past summer I moved to Chamonix, France for 7 weeks to study the french language and engulf myself in the beauty of the Alps. Lets get real, there was more skiing, drinking, dancing and laughing than there was studying - but that is besides the point. I had the opportunity to meet people from all ends of the world with all different life goals. What is the point of this? To always remember to keep your mind susceptible to different cultures around you and to never settle for less than you deserve.
