I'm moving to NY!
So firstly apologies for being so absent the last few months - if you've been following me on social media you'll notice I've been all over the place with my schedule so naturally my blog got neglected! I'M SORRY! I'll explain all, since coming back to London from my summer stint in NY I managed to get signed with a modelling agency who sponsored me to work out there with a visa. Now where to start with the visa? and how much time do you have? ha! I started the process in September when I got back and I was eventually handed my passport on Friday (just gone) with the stamp to say I can work and live there for the next 3 years. (It wasn't easy and I will do a blog post about this) So it's official - I'm MOVING TO NY! I'm totally stoked and so ready to build a career while I'm out there, this of course has come with HUGE sacrifices but the one thing I keep remembering is that opportunities like this don't come easily and sometimes you just have to take that leap of faith! I'll be leaving the UK in Jan, so as you can imagine the last few months have been crazy busy with organising and preparing for this move along with spending quality time with family and friends I might not see in a while. I have also been planning what i'll be doing while I'm out there and since this will be the first time where i'll be totally independent there will be lots of room for me to blog and vlog what i'll be getting up to. I have planned to move this blog into a new direction which will still include my love for footwear but also documenting my move and how the modeling industry works out there not just for me as a model of colour from London but for other models I meet out there hopefully giving an insight to aspiring models who have always dreamed of working in NY like I did. I will miss London terribly, after all its where I was born and raised and where all my favourite memories are with family and friends but for now I'm ready to enter this new chapter with open arms. I could not have made this move without the blind loyalty and support from the people around me who believed in me and my dream even when I didn't! (you know who you are and I love you all so dearly) and of course thank you to my new agency who have been able to make this happen for me! All I can say without sounding like a cliche is DARE TO DREAM - they do come true!
