I want to show the world that it doesn't matter what you want to do, as long as you work hard and want it, you can achieve it. Anything is possible so long as you have passion for it.

Calling the interview
I was really nervous when I picked up the phone to call in to schedule my interview. The woman I was going to interview I actually knew--simply because I had bought from her store before. She's a vintage designer--she rips apart dresses and tops and bottoms and matches them up to make them truly desirable. I love it, because I love designing too, but I also love looking at other people's work and editing them. Each of her pieces is unique, which I admire a lot. But they also come from somewhere--sometimes the top comes from a piece that was not so original. That's what I love about it.
Anyways, I reached for the phone and was nervous. What if she didn't want to talk to me? What if I asked all the wrong questions? How do I DO this?
I called anyways. She picked up. I asked about an interview, and at first she was suspicious. "What for?" she asked. Not rudely, just aware. "For school. I'm a student at New Tech, you see," I explained quickly, realizing my first mistake. Almost immediately, she was willing to help. "Oh! Of course, of course. Well, I'm not here Wednesday, but if you come in Tuesday or Thursday I would be glad to be interviewed!" "Great! Thank you!" I replied.
Then I hung up.
I was proud to have done something right.
