I turned to fashion to express my creativity and unique colors; I did not want to be written off as a mere “geeky” Asian girl in my predominantly Caucasian town. Fashion gave me confidence, and I yearned to know about other people’s distinct styles and stories. Thus, I created Jenzemi, a fashion blog that profiles people I encounter while walking the streets of NYC. Through Jenzemi, I have connected with people whom I would have never met before. By sharing their stories, I demonstrate that fashion transcends mere materialism, and that each person is unique and worthy of celebration.
