Nice. Well, I hear great things about FIT for Fashion and great things about Parsons for Photography. Not sure which one is better, but I’m sure you’re researching all that. You’ll figure it out :) Good Luck!
tanishasays asked: The fact that you're from Albany is so fucking inspirational its fucking RIDICULOUS! I always thought no one who comes from Albany make it anywhere, and here you are, following your dreams - being someone. I am PROUD.
Thank you! That means a lot. I used to think the same things…but ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. I’m living proof of that. From Livingston Ave/Arbor Hill to now living and working in Manhattan! There are a lot of fellow Albany peeps down here making names for themselves ;)
sky-fly3r asked: did you really play basketball?
I wish I was that coordinated. Never played a sport in my life…the photographer just asked me to shoot around for the camera.
mijaugly asked: Vashtie I really admire you. What did you do in high school to get where you're at now?
Thank you! Well - I was doing everything I’m doing now…just on a smaller scale. I was making clothes (now I have my own brand, Violette), writing in a journal (now blogging), throwing parties (now 1992), shooting videos for friends (now directing music videos). My high school didn’t have much of an art program so I improvised. Hope that helps :)
