Fun fact: My first job out of college was at the Urban Outfitter HQ in Philly as "Creative Assistant" for Free People. It has almost been seven years since I worked there, and today I am the featured artist on the Free People Blog! I highly value the experience I gained from working there, and what I know now is life had much more to offer me. To be frank, it wasn't easy being on the bottom of a corporate ladder, even if it was a "cool" job. My confidence was crushed when I left, and it took some time for me to find myself again. So it's a bit victorious for me to be telling my story to the Free People fans. My friend Jemma Jones interviewed me and I have to say, I really love the questions she asked. If your interested in reading the answers to these thought provoking questions you can link to the interview here.

All this talk about American road trips had me look back and find a photo that Chap took of me exploring a flower farm in Hot Springs, North Carolina.
