She is her own muse–that is the best way I can describe Aerial. Every time I see her, I get so inspired. A force of nature, she is the embodiment of self-empowerment. A soon to be blogger herself, read what empowered Aerial to reach beyond the stars!
When I think of the word inspire, I think to myself that I want to be just that–inspiring. I want to inspire as many people as possible!
I am a 19-year-old designer , stylist, and I’m an inspiring actress. Being a young designer comes with fear and anxiety because you have so many questions like: Who will wear my clothing ? How far could this go ? What type of attitude do I represent ? But it’s all about confidence !
You have to believe in YOU.
So what inspires me? What inspires my craft?
I started off by going to the Savannah College of Art and Design for a year, but I wasn’t able to finish school . Still, I knew I wanted to pursue something, somehow.
That’s when I discovered my “do not give up” mentality . I told myself that if you believe in yourself, and you have a good support system, then you will be fine. I definitely still struggle, and I go through things, but the people who inspire and empower me have been through hell and back–so I know if they made it out, so can I .
I grew up in the church, so I believe that anything is possible with the help of the Lord. Growing up I received a lot of love, and inspiration from those who have come before me. One thing that I always remember, is that God has said that He wouldn’t put you through more than you can handle. No matter what obstacles I come against, I know all things are possible.
There are definitely times where I want to give up, but then I think about who I’m doing this for, and who I can always inspire on my journey.
So with that being said: Hi, I’m Aerial Harper. No, I didn’t finish college, but I will be launching my own clothing line early this Summer. It has taken me five years, and through those five years, I had gone through depression, but through it all, I finally found myself!
I am a designer ! I am a fashion and hair stylist ! I sing ! I act ! I dance ! I am athletic! I am anything I want to be. Why? Because I can do whatever I put my mind to!
I want to be an inspiration for anyone who thinks the struggle isn’t worth the effort, or whoever thinks the thread isn’t worth hanging onto. I promise you, if you hang on a little bit longer, everything is possible.
