I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.
-Mary Oliver “When Death Comes”
Hello my field daisies! My name is Daisy, and I am sort of named after a flower. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Media Studies, but I was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama.
Let’s face it. Life is short. We all know this, yet sometimes this notion slips our minds as we carry out the mundane steps of “living.”
I believe the trick to avoiding this dreadful cycle is to find something that you love to do.
Since I was a little girl, the fashion world has allured my attention. I would always read my mother’s glossy Vogue magazines, dreaming of one day becoming a model. Sadly being 5’5 makes this dream seem highly unlikely. But my lack of height does not deter me from wanting to be a part of the fashion world! I used to want to be a model, but I’ve come to realize my passion lies in talent management/producing. I want to make other people’s creative dreams come true.
I am also a big media enthusiast. I love all kinds of music, TV shows, movies, books, poems, plays, art, YouTube channels… The list goes on and on. When I get hooked on to something, I like to find out everything about that thing. We are fortunate to live in the Internet age, where finding interviews, live performances, biographies, etc. is just clicks away. Sharing has never been easier with social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc. Media is integrated into every part of our daily living, immersing us until we are completely surrounded, much like being caught in an underwater current. Who knows where media will take us? All we can do is hold our breath and enjoy the ride.
So this blog is about me hoping to find my voice in this dauntingly vast world and maybe inspiring some of you to find your voice as well.
Love ya’ll and thanks for reading!
Hope you have a daisyish day!
