When I Grow Up
by Alexandria | October 31, 2016
When I grow up, I want to be a professional artist and fashion designer. It has been my dream since I was in Kindergarten, and now I hope to turn that dream into a reality. For many years now, I have been designing dresses and practicing sewing by hand. Now that I have my own sewing machine, I have been creating my own personal clothing line. In a few years, I hope to attend a local fashion institute so I can be inspired and learn everything about the history of art and fashion design, and hopefully how to make it even better. I also have a condition called "scoliosis", where the spine is crooked and twisted. This has forced me to wear an uncomfortable chest-to-hips back brace for 18 hours a day, every day. It is very difficult to find clothes that are able to cover up a brace when it is so large. So my plan for when I am older is to design and create stylish clothes to fit every shape, size, and body type perfectly--because everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful.
