FP Me to You: Introducing Michelle Collins

Otherwise known as The Urban Nomad. One of the raddest and baddest of our FPMe gals.

This post comes from our dear friend and FP Me muse, Michelle.

My name is Michelle Collins. I am a native New Yorker (born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens and now back in Brooklyn). My mother is from Barbados. I love that I grew up in a place that has allowed me to discover every culture and style while affording me the opportunity to experience my own. I crave the hustle and bustle, as much as those opportunities to steal away into a quiet space with my friends and just take a breather. I can’t imagine calling anywhere else home.

My dream? To be a creative director who creates multicultural branding while retaining the company’s inherent voice. Having grown up in the city and being exposed to so many diverse cultures has fueled my desire to represent them all via various campaigns and, in this day and age, why not?

I have been an active member of the FP Me community for just over 3 years, and I consider the Free People team family. Being a part of this unique circle has allowed me to meet people (in person and online) from all over the world who represent the FP identity: confident, carefree and in love with life. Each experience has made me more comfortable in my skin and encouraged me to embrace who I am — with no apologies. So it only make sense that my mantra for 2016-2017 is: “Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful.” To be able to approach anything without fear (of failure, rejection, etc) is more than half the battle.

Throughout month of September, find me here to learn about my beauty regimen, musings on health, and where I go to unplug and unwind in the busy city of New York.
This week, I have the pleasure of attending an FP Me x Polaroid event in the Catskills (which I’m so excited about), which I’m hoping will get my creative juices flowing again. I will be sharing that with you guys next week.

In the meantime, check out Michelle’s blog and follow her on InstagramTumblr and Fohr!

If everyone lived a free life they would have no time to interfere in other people’s and more people could be happy in their own skins and n to be jealous of things.
