Where do you see yourself? Future Plan- career?
There are two career paths that interest and excite me. I currently work for Louis Vuitton and I am thrilled to be a part of such a historical and successful company. I currently work in sales but it is my desire to work for the company at a corporate level, preferably as a visual merchandiser or fashion buyer. I have also taken an interest in possibly becoming a trainer as well. A career as a trainer for this company incorporates teaching and fashion which both fields interest me immensely!
I have also been working on a business plan for a luxury denim boutique. This is my ultimate dream and something I would love to do in the future. I understand all the challenges that can come with owning a business, however, it is something I am very passionate about and have put a lot of time into developing the overall concept for. The name of my store is called Blackboard + Chalk, the name was derived from the idea that even though you can write all over a blackboard with chalk, it is not permanent. You can always erase and start again. Blackboard + Chalk is about new beginnings and writing your very own story, and that it is ok to start over.
At present my life is a blank canvas, and I am having to start all over. The day to day challenges are proving to be overwhelming, however, I am pushing through boundaries and making strides in the right direction. I am learning the importance of self-love and making myself a priority. I am learning to not be afraid of the future and to take control of the life I have been blessed with. I leave you with my favorite poem by WILLIAM ERNEST HENLEY:
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
