June Ambrose: Celebrity Stylist
I discovered June Ambrose when VH1 showed her reality show Styled by June a couple years ago. Throughout her career she has styled some of the biggest celebrities such as Will Smith, Diddy, Jay Z, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott and more. I was so excited to see a woman of my color doing really great things in the field I am pursuing. Since then I have been a big fan of hers. I follow her on social media. On her Instagram (@juneambrose) she makes posts quite often of her working, spending time with her family, and daily inspirational quotes. She seems really energetic and full of life. I can definitely tell that she enjoys what she does. I aspire to have a career doing what I love and she is a great example.
Also, I know she does a lot her work in NYC and she tends to post pictures of where she is. I remember last summer when a few friends and I went to New York for a few days, and I was hoping I would run into her. I didn't get to, but it was exciting knowing that it was possible. I hope I receive the privilege of working with her one day. Until then I will take notes, work hard, and as June Ambrose would say, “DREAM WITH YOUR EYES OPEN!”
