I can not believe I can finally say ‘Hello New York City !!’… Between organising my Visa, Accommodation, Flights it wasn’t the easiest adventure I have every planned. But I can 100% clairfy that all that work that has gone into making this happen has been 100% worth it. ( and yes I know its only my first week.. haha) But I honestly just know I will love it here. With moving alone and not knowing anyone in the city except for my brother. Everyone has been so welcoming in work as well around the City.
As most of you may know this internship with Marc Jacobs has been a dream of mine come true and I am so excited to share this very important chapter in my life with you. To help share my journey and hopefully inspire some up and coming design students or any young girls or boys out there who might have the same dream. To Inspire is my biggest goal.!
A very interesting thing happened during my flight over from Shannon I was starting to think… -What happens if I don’t make any friends/ If I hate the job/ Hate the City ?… Soon after this as I was flicking through the TV series section on the screen I came across an interview on CNBC featuring Karl Lagerfeld (Italian Fashion Designer/Head Designer and Creative Director at Chanel ) During the interview he was asked .
Q : What scares you Karl? Responding with..:
"If you are in this business and you are scared then you better do something else. "
It was at that time I realised how true he was. Whats the point in being scared of a change in your life. Embrace it with open arms and challenge yourself, at the end of the day you only get one chance to live your own life and no one else can so that for you. Which is always something I have to remind myself.
If you have taken anything out of this post I want it to be..
Dream Big and Dont Be Scared!! Lots of Love from NYC, Aoife. X
