When I first moved here, I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t speak any French. I had never been to Europe. And I didn’t know a single person in the country.
See, I’m drawn to challenges and inspired by the things I don’t understand. I wanted to learn from people who had different beliefs. People who would disagree with me.
France, in a year you’ve given me my dreams, fashion weeks, design school, love, the best kisses, somewhat life-threatening situations, the occasional public humiliation, your beautiful language, and the craziest adventures (that I will never be able to talk about because no one would believe me).
But, you are what you are because of your passionate, crazy, and extraordinary people. The people who I am currently sitting in an airport crying about over my last pain au chocolat. It’s embarrassing and kind of sweet. I know. But please still accept my sincerest merci.
Avec tout mon cœur,
