Facebook reminded me today that in 2011 I was denied in to the fashion school I applied for after I got my 2 year degree Bc I'm horrible at drawing. I remember seeing the letter and not even reading it. I just saw the word "unfortunately", set the letter down, and I remember giving myself 5 mins to cry, then told myself get to work and figure it out another way. It's pretty crazy it's taken me 6 years to release my own @bynadiaaboulhosn line. For these past few months I've been really hard on myself bc I don't feel like I'm accomplishing enough but I think it's really important to have an end goal in mind and don't let anything steer you away from that. Not friendships, ending relationships, ups and downs, bad business, people telling you no. I've grown and learned so much these past years from running a business and being my own business, and I really knew nothing and taught myself along the way. Really just want to say thank you to everyone who supports me and how I move and please be persistent and patient and even if people along the way say no, don't say no to yourself. The route everyone else takes may not be the right one for you. I'm glad I learned that early on and made my own lane for myself.
