As a 19-year-old freshman at Syracuse University studying Public Relations in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, I aspire to work in the business end of the fashion industry. Equipped with a love for all things creative, I’m able to bring style to life through my writing. In high school, I served as editor-in-chief to both my school newspaper and yearbook, and I write a weekly column in my local newspaper, The Lowell Sun. Combined with my long-time affair with fashion, my love for writing has me constantly reporting on popular trends and styles. I'm just another girl with a dream, but through my blog, Fashion is Freedom, and this very blog page, my dream has already started to blossom. With much recognition and opportunities, I’ve watched my ideas spread and my fans become inspired. Expressing my individuality through fashion is why I live, and what I would die for.

There's something very charming about effortless style. It's easy to tell when someone isn't trying to look chic, but what's not easy is trying to look like that person. Any style is attractive to me, but a style that stems from self-expression has got to be the best kind. Take,...

After a recent research project on the abuse of young models, I've taken a lot of interest in the prevalent issue.
