When I was 16 after having multiple issues with my mother, despite the objections of many family members, my grandmother allowed me to live with her. My mother was a single parent and for a long time she couldn't afford to buy my siblings and I lots of clothes and even when she had more money she said that I would just gain weight and grow out of my clothes, so she wouldn't buy them (My mother has since then become much more supportive of me and my size). When I moved in with my grandmother she bought me lots of clothes which allowed me to experiment with my style. Most of my clothing posted on this blog was purchased by my mother and grandmother as well!
My grandmother also has made investments in me and my future by supporting me while I went to college in Chicago and now supporting me along with my mother and step father here in New York. I am applying to Universities right, so I can graduate and make her proud by handing her my college degree. She has my high school diploma; I couldn't have done that without her either. I am serious guys...everyone said I wouldn't finish high school and I mean everyone, but my grandmother believed in me and got me through it. She has invested in this blog by purchasing me the camera I used to take pictures. She believes in me and this project and for that I am grateful.
So, to the woman that has loved me and supported me my whole life, I love you and Happy Birthday!
