Hi guys! This past week I went to Eagle University. Eagle U is a week long program for students that teaches them about goal setting, career paths, and self confidence. We were taught that everyday we should tell ourselves that we are a 10 and no one can effect that. I had a ton fun and learned so much! At the end of the week, one person from each group had to give a talk in front of everyone that attended the program...And one of those people were me! I spoke about my blog and the goals I plan to achieve for the fashion industry. I decided to share my speech with you guys!
**side note: I come from the Mortenson family (if you're from KY you've probably heard of Mortenson Family Dental??...yep that's us) SO BASICALLY everyone in my family works with teeth WHICH MEANS I am wanted to carry on the family tradition, haha.
"Hi. My name is Emma Engilman and I am 16 years old. Growing up in the Mortenson family and deciding not to go into the dental field is almost sinful, as you can imagine. Because of this, it has always been my goal to do what I love but to do my absolute best at it.

My name is Emma Engilman. The goal of my blog is to encourage self confidence and stray away from societies definition of "beauty." I refuse to retouch my appearance in Photoshop, so enjoy my flaws because they make me-- me!
