My Akiyo Story
So, what charm did I choose? The charm I chose was the Eiffel Tower. When you mention the Eiffel Tower, most people will instantly think of Paris, the City of Love and Romance. But for me, it means much more than that. Before my love for beauty kick started, Paris to me was an Escape. I was in college, sponsored to do my A-levels and to eventually further my studies in Actuarial Science in the UK. I knew all along that it wasn't what I wanted to do, but study is study. The one thing that made me excited to study in UK is not the possible future of math and calculations, but it was the fact that it was close to Paris. I can just take the train and I'll be in Paris in 2 hours. It was the ultimate escape for me, an escape from everything. But that "dream" didn't happen, although it felt unfortunate at the time, but not being able to go, opened a new door of opportunity for me to pursue my real passion. My love for all things makeup started after I watched Michelle Phan's videos. To her, Paris was and is everything. It's the origin of the company she have always wanted to work for, it's where she made her short film and it's the place she met the one she loved. It's not the dream I want because I don't believe everyone can live the same dream. But that is what Paris meant to me, a Symbol of Dream. And what is my dream? Honestly, I haven't quite figure out that part yet. But the Eiffel Tower is a reminder that big dreams to come true, and whatever mine is or will be, it is possible to achieve.
So, what's your Akiyo story? :)
