I think making sure to have a well rounded, full education of all aspects is so important. So many people only read the articles or seek news sources skewed to their preferred side instead of further challenging their mind, beliefs, and ideals to perhaps think outside of the box.
As a fashion major, we can get the stigma to be rather vain, vapid, and uneducated on many topics outside of our industry. I hope to always represent fashion well in being a seeker of knowledge and information so I can form my own ideals and not the ideals based off of the herd. One of the most important things to do in crisis like these is to properly learn, then listen...you'll be surprised at what you hear. x
With much love, Lauren.
