Thank you so much, Telekom Fashion Fusion for selecting the project and for your sponsorship. Thank you to Refinery29 for the feature! Thank you, God, for so many miracles that allowed me to start and complete this work and THANK YOU to ALL my family and friends that supported me!
I was given this sponsorship opportunity back in December when my son was only 3 weeks old, and I almost passed up on the opportunity, because it was easier to not try. I am so glad I did not do that. My husband and child supported me 1000% and were my biggest fans through this entire project. It was not easy, but it was DESTINY. When something is for you, all you have to do is continue to show up, give your best at all times and remain positive, and you are guaranteed to get through it...
I dedicated this project to two of the most amazing women I have met in my life. These two have consistently encouraged and support me over the years in uncountable ways: My long-time client and mentor Vivian Jackson and my Grandmother Helen Mitchell. They both passed away unexpectedly while I was working in Berlin. You beautiful ladies will never know how much you impacted my life and how much your words AND actions built me up. You believed in me when it was not popular, and continue to feel your love and support today and always!
