Brigethia Arai: What or who influenced you to start blogging? Fashionlaine: A lot of my friends had encouraged me for years to start a blog because of my interesting sense of style. So one day I finally gave in and did! And in addition, going through the challenges I faced in college of not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, It was really inspired to create this blog to become a voice and an example for others that they too can do anything they want. Growing up, I was always searching for that person who I was hoping to be that voice for me so it makes me feel fulfilled and happy to hopefully be that voice for others.
Brigethia Arai: How did you come up with the name FashionLaine? Fashionlaine: When I was first thinking about starting a blog, I had asked a few friends on suggestions for names. One of my friends instantly suggested the name Fashionlaine since she thought it was a cute play on my name as well as incorporating the concept of fashion into it!

Brigethia Arai: What would you want people to know about you that they don’t? Fashionlaine: I've tried so many different things and routes before I got to what I'm doing today. I studied pre-med, took the LSAT to go to law school, worked at a big PR Firm for three years, and now have moved onto doing my blog. So if there's one thing I think is good for people to know, it's that it's okay to look into and try different things-- that way you can find what you most love and are passionate about.
