Above all, though, the most powerful part of the weekend was the inspiration I garnered from it. Everywhere I turned the entire weekend- from the words and unique stories of the seminar speakers, to the incredibly passionate fellow students I met, to even the random chicly dressed girls and guys I passed between classes- I was inspired. One thing that all TVFU students have in common are big dreams and the will to work hard for those dreams. Living in a small city, often so removed from the world I strive to enter, it is so easy to become discouraged and scared of the future, to hang my head low and sigh, and feel like I will never turn my life into what I want it to be. However, at TVFU, every student has such passion and strong will, and the energy is absolutely contagious. It's a feeling I can't even begin to describe. It is this kind of inspiration that keeps me going, working, striving for what I want.
And for that, Teen Vogue Fashion University, I am incredibly grateful.
Congratulations TVFU Class of 2013!!
