*** Update 11/1/2018***

Thank you ALL for your beautiful and honest words. While I did not get a spot in this program, your feedback and reviews let me know that the content I provide is valuable. Thank you!


Hey Lovely!

I wanted to take a few moments to thank you for your ideas, input, and love as we continue on this journey. 

Over the weekend, I applied for a program called the Fohr Freshman Class. This is an opportunity for bloggers and influencers to attend an all-expense paid conference in New York this November to learn more about expanding their brand. 

Here is a brief description, straight from Fohr’s application:

Fohr Freshman Class is a pilot program that is meant to provide mentorship, access and networking opportunities to influencers who typically have been excluded by the industry. We are aware of how societal barriers prevent many talented influencers from being discovered and we want to use our platform to change that. We encourage influencers of all races, ethnicities, religions, ages, body types, and sexual orientations to apply to be part of our first Freshman Class.

Fohr Freshman Class Application Questions

As I was writing my answers to the application questions, I thought of you, my favorite reader, and what this opportunity can do for YOU! I want to bring you the answers to all your problems, lovely, and this opportunity could give me the resources to do exactly that. 

Here’s an excerpt from my application:

Why do you want to be a part of Fohr Freshman Class?

I love to learn! I spend every single day seeking knowledge to increase my reach and improve my skills. And I am certain the Fohr Freshman Class will be the perfect opportunity to increase my creative skills and expand my network.

Plus, I am incredibly interested in a program designed to change the influencer industry for the better. I want to be an ambassador for change, and the Fohr Freshman Class has already positioned themselves at the catalyst for diverse evolution in the industry.

If you woke up tomorrow and you had 500,000 followers, what is the first thing you would post about?

Wow, half a million followers! Each of them deserves to hear how amazing they are. I would post my favorite positive affirmations to remind every single one of them they are amazing.

โ€œYou are powerful.

You are strong.

You have everything you need for success already within you.โ€

And I would ask each of them to also share the affirmation they use every morning to get ready for a successful day as a superwoman.


Now here is the part where I could use your help! 

The next part of the application asks for testimonials from each of you about my blog and Instagram. If you enjoy my work, please take a couple minutes to write a review! I would greatly appreciate it!

One of the final questions asked what IG posts define my passion, so I thought I would share my favorites with you. 

Thank you again for always sticking with me! I appreciate your love, support, and continued reading, and I hope this experience will only make our relationship stronger.

Thanks in advance for your testimonial!
