Today, I woke up with the fate to see a string of tweets by the Honorable, Jeremy Scott. My senior year of high school, I decided I wanted nothing more but to start my college career with fashion. My senior ditch day I interviewed to be Jeremy Scott’s intern. While all my friends went to the beach, I drove my little car up to the Hollywood Hills where his studio was located. I had no clue what I was doing.
Unfortunately, I did not get the internship because, at that time, I had no sewing/pattern making skills. But since then, Ive continued looking for internships. I just felt proud of my self to land an internship interview period.
Jeremy Scott has since been an inspiration to me. This morning, he tweeted on about his start and I found it incredibly beautiful. I’ve gather all the tweets together:
YOU KNOW PARIS IS FUNNY I HAVE SO MANY MEMORIES HERE, LAST NIGHT I WAS TELLING MY FRIEND ROSSON HOW WHEN I CAME HERE I HAD NO PLACE 2 LIVE.
I HAD 6 SUITCASES FULL OF CLOTHES, I LOOKED AMAZING BUT I WAS HOMELESS, I DIDNT SPEAK THE FRENCH, I KNEW NO ONE & ONLY HAD $100 IN MY POCKET.
