It has been quite some time since my last post. So much has happened over the course of some months. For example, I've taken a position as a Kerastase Tech Artist, made my first trip over the Pacific to the Philippines and most recently traveled to Milano and some of the surrounding areas.
This trip in particular was a special one encompasing both personal discoveries and professional milestones. For the first time in my life I traveled abroad alone and spent the first half of my trip exploring and navigating on my own. I imagined that this would be rather difficult and lonely for me but on the contrary I found it to be surprisingly enjoyable. I discovered that I'm capable of enjoying my own company and quite time to reflect and process my thoughts. I also found that I can be engaging with perfect strangers and more comfortable initiating conversations than I expected. Not to mention that I was in God's country there was no shortage of beauty around to stimulate and keep me in a state of awe and gratitude.
I did appreciate the company when it did arrive mid trip though. Traveling with people I now can call dear friends and getting to work with some amazing agencies, models and people in general while in Milan really was the icing on the cake. I was able to add Joy Models and Urban Management to the roster of world wide recognized agencies that I've had the pleasure of working with.
Enjoying the day at EXPO MILANO 2015. Countries from all over the globe created spectacular Pavilions housing creative cultural presentations. These presentations were centered around the theme of green technology and sustainability as it pertains to agriculture and bio diversity.
Cinque Terre was an amazing time of reflection. A time to challenge myself socially and physically. Everyone I interacted with was a stranger and many times language was hurtle but I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
Lago Como was not only one of the most beautiful places my eyes have ever laid eyes on but it's over all enchanting vibe and charm was something that all the sences could testify to. Our time here was spent sharing amazing meals, conversation and taking in the sites at an enjoyable lazy pace.
Fashion flows through the veins of Milano and I was able to get a glimpse behind the scenes of the industry here and work with some promising new faces.
It's my hope that this was only the first of many trips to Milan. I'm extremely taken with Italy as a whole and would welcome any opportunity to visit again very soon! Apresto Italia!!
