If you’d asked me when I was a little girl if I ever thought that my name would appear in one of the magazines I held so dear: I would have thought you were crazy.
The world of fashion (no matter how obsessed I was) felt so far removed from where I grew up as a child, and although I used to sketch dress designs like a maniac and style my dolls hair for a plethora of different occasions: I just never thought about it as a viable career choice. Low and behold the internet changed everything! I feel so blessed to be able to do the work I do from where I live, and participate in things that are happening all over the world. The internet is truly a beautiful thing.
Fast forward about 20 years or so and here I am holding a magazine with my name in it, and although it’s not much: it’s there! So if you happen to pick up a February issue of Flare Magazine
and flip to page 27 you’ll see my name appear in the fold for my contributions of pitching the local hair accessory company Oh Dina
! for their “Localist” section.
Honestly it doesn’t matter how many times I see my name in there I still get just as excited as the first time! I feel so blessed to live this life, and also to feel rewarded for all my hard work. I was also REALLY excited to see the Oh Dina! (with Photography by Nicole Lapierre Photography
) was given a full page! EEP! It’s always amazing to see Halifax represented in the national magazine, but a full page! I mean?! Amazing right?
So if you’re flipping through the mag make sure to make a stop at page 27 :):) and never be afraid to go after your dream job!
