I’ve always tried to surround myself with positive people, whether that’s through high school, university or even outside of my education.

If you know me, you know I often talk about future goals or what I want to be doing in a few years time, after my degree. I literally don’t shut up!

Growing up, I think I’ve always known what I’ve wanted to be or what sort of job I would love to have in the future, till this day that hasn’t changed.

I often over think about the future and what it holds, all sorts or thoughts and self doubt comes into my head like, “What if I’m not good enough” and then lead on to comparing myself to other “successful” fashion creative’s who would have achieved much more at my age and who I aspire to be like

However, after all the stressing and frustration, I come to my senses and say to myself that never compare your progress to others. We're all different. – This I truly believe. I am my biggest critic, I criticize a lot of my work and want it to be ‘perfect’ I’m sure many you  feel the same about yourself, however I realise everything takes time and things will happen when they happen, you have to just keep working hard, and someday you will get to where you want to be.

One of my favourite quotes that I have ever read is

Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have. Without having a goal it’s difficult to score.
— Paul Arden

 ...So guys, keep your goal in mind, stay ambitious and you’ll get where you need to be. A positive attitude will get you far.
