My Inspiration

by Patricia on July 18, 2016

in Extracurricular

A public figure I admire is Stacy London. She hosted the TV show “What Not to Wear” and currently hosts another show called “Love, Lust or Run.” I admire her for many reasons. My career is similar to hers; I work at Nordstrom and help people find items and give them advice. We also share lots of similarities. We both come from highly academic families that studied philosophy, which is why we think alike. During interviews she shares universal truths about the world in the most fascinating way. I am fully engaged in what she has to say and agree with most of it. There are even some smaller things that we have in common. She mentioned that as a child she wore a Dorothy costume every year on Halloween. I happened to do the same as a child, only I wore mine every day. We even share some life struggles such as bullying.

I also admire that she campaigns against bullying and raises awareness for mental illness. My family has been greatly effected by mental illness; it traces back all the way to my great-great grandma! Lots of people caught up in fashion become materialistic; Stacy London does not fall into this. She is a well-rounded  person who received an education, pursued a career and fights for the cause!

Be Something Beautiful

by DeMarcus on September 28, 2015

in Faith

“There could never be a more beautiful you”  is the lyric sung by Christian artist Johnny Diaz in his song “Beautiful You.” Last week, this lyric constantly played in my head over and over. While the song is a toe tapper, I started to think about times I tried alter myself to blend in but who hasn’t, right? I would act out in ways I thought were “cool” but then I felt stupid afterwards. I knew better. I knew before I did the stupid action but I felt as if I had something to prove, which is nothing. Now that I am older I realized it isn’t any fun pretending to be someone you’re not. It is seriously BORING! “Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through.” I am warning you: do not buy into the things that those people, ‘your friends’ are telling you. They are setting you up for failure, humiliation, and emotional turmoil. It is not worth any of it. I’ve been there and done it and I can testify that it is exhausting. No one can be a better you than you. Once you’ve found your sense of self, you will be on your way.

Now that you’ve found who you truly are, no one can tell you any different. How does it feel to be you? I can tell you it feels great. Knowing who you are as a person and the direction you are headed in is unbelievable. All of those doubts are starting to leave your mind and positive affirmations are coming in full effect. Most times it doesn’t happen right away but in order to fully embrace the new you, you have to believe and accept all of your flaws.  “And God’s says, I’m gonna turn it into something different, I’m gonna turn it into something good, I’m gonna take all the broken pieces, And make something beautiful like only I could.” Steven Curtis Chapman sings this in his song “Something Beautiful” and it totally gives me that extra push to just be me and live life to the fullest.

This is my very first semester at Fontbonne and, honestly, I had hopes of meeting new people and making some new friends. I definitely wasn’t prepared for what I found here! As an art major I have found that it is a small community unto itself here. Many of my classmates are in several of my classes and we all seem to inspire and encourage one another. One classmate in particular has not only inspired me, but has also given support without even being asked. Alicia has inspired me in class with her determination in every project she under takes. There is a flare and passion to her work that is always a joy to see. She’s also very encouraging of others, giving her honest opinion, and constructive feed back. She’s also been kind and supportive outside of the classroom. She’s helped me with studying for tests and also taking the time to sit and chat during one particularly stressful week. She’s been a huge inspiration and so supportive, I feel grateful to call her my friend.

“You Inspire me to reach the next level”

by Alumni Posts September 20, 2012

When you look up the word inspire, the dictionary defines it as- to fill with an animating, quickening, or exalting influence: His courage inspired his followers. In the Fontbonne community I would have to say that Dr. Jason Sommer would be an inspiration to me. He’s my professor, my academic advisor, Department Chair of the […]
