Flower Fields and Floral Jumpsuits

 Jumpsuit: H&M // Shoes: BP (similar) // Jacket: Old Navy // Bag: Anthropologie // Lips: Colourpop "Viper"

Ok, so as you read this, I'm probably on a red-eye flight to New York City, ready to embark on an adventure.  This summer, I had the amazing opportunity to take a month of courses at Barnard and Columbia to get a taste of medical school and life in the big city.  I'm so incredibly excited.  And nervous.  But mostly excited!  Let me explain.

I don't really talk about my age on here, and I don't plan to, but as most have speculated, yes, I'm young.  This blog has allowed me to connect with so many different types of people, from newly-married twenty-somethings to girl-boss working moms.  Most of the people I've made friends with through blogging are women who have settled into their lives, and even though I'm at a very different point, just getting ready to start my life, I've still been able to connect with these amazing people, and for that I am so grateful.  Fashion and creativity breaks age barriers, and I love that I've been able to create this blog and build it without feeling like no one took me seriously.  I feel as though I have a community of amazing older sisters cheering me on, and I love you all for it.

This experience will be unlike anything I've ever done.  For many reasons, I'm scared of it, because change isn't something that comes easily to anyone, especially me.  I'm scared of not making friends.  I'm scared of not knowing what to do.  I'm scared of failure.  But beyond all that, I feel overwhelming gratitude.  Not enough people and young women in the world are blessed with this kind of opportunity.  Not enough women in the world have the right of education, much less this amazing opportunity that I've been given.  I'm so lucky.

I get to live out my dreams for a month this summer, being in the greatest city in the world.  I get to study medicine at one of the best schools in the country, and I'm one step closer to my ultimate end goal, becoming a surgeon.  Even though it's just one summer studying at this amazing institution, my goal is to be back in a few years for med school.  Heck, I even get to see Hamilton, which might be the best night of my life.  I feel so grateful, so blessed, and so humbled that this dream gets to be my reality.  I'll relish every second of it until this month is over.

I can't wait to share this adventure with you guys.  Thank you for your love and support.
