- Raissa Yang
Hello! My name is Raissa Yang. I am 18 years old and currently attend Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. I am working as part of the Modelboard team as a blogger and editor. The hardest part about this job has been writing an autobiography, but I have given it a shot below so you, our lovely readers, have the opportunity to get to know me! You can find more of my writing at raissayang.wordpress.com.
I discovered the fashion world when I entered the 10th grade. Up until then I paid little attention to clothing and style. All of a sudden, though, something clicked within me and it was as though I had been thrust into a completely new world of colors, fabrics, designs, and styles. My interest in fashion grew exponentially and I began to absorb everything I could from fashion magazines, books, and websites.
Today I view fashion as a beautiful art form that is simultaneously accessible and applicable to everyone. Fashion has become a channel through which I can express myself and highlight the more subtle parts of my personality. My personal style usually leans towards clean cut lines with chic and classic designs coupled with a standout piece that gives the entire outfit a little bit of edge.
Let’s Take A Journey…
Come take a journey with me as I write for Modelboard. I plan on exploring and learning more about the fashion world and my own fashion sense. Let’s go discover together!
