Hello New York!

After years of contemplation, and anticipation; it is safe to say that I will be spreading my wings and moving to none other than the Big Apple. Moving to New York has been a long term goal for me for some time now, and I am finally ready to make the city that never sleeps my new home. It's amazing what can happen when you let go of fear and put your trust in Jehovah God.

No more than just three and a half weeks ago I made a day trip to drop my résumé at various retailers and ended up leaving with a job offer from BCBG. You better believe I took that offer with no hesitation at all lol. Now in just one weeks time, I will be transitioning from DC to NY, and I am looking forward to the many opportunities that may be tossed my way. From styling, to design, I can't wait to continue to expand my knowledge and develop my skills.

With all of this being said, I encourage you all to follow your passions and do things when you are READY, not when others think you should. "Everyone evolves at his/her own rate. It aint a race. Stay in your lane" ~ E. Badu

Congratulations! I've been following you for a while on here and Instagram and your work ethics are amazing and you're beautiful as well. I used to live in NYC but I moved back to Maryland so I know You're heading to the right place to fulfill your passion. I know God will continue to lead you to your destiny all because you took that leap of faith. This is only the beginning. Best wishes with everything. :-)

Congrats Mika! I've been thinking of doing this and I'm not sure what's holding me back. I've given myself a goal of April/May to really push my resume out there and get myself packed and ready to go.

Congrats again!
