Expanding the Extraordinary

–Tatyana Turner

In the words of one of my first interviewee’s, fashion blogger, Diego Leon, ” you cannot have one man army.” Yet, individuals still try to achieve this impossible task. We are human and thus, we are not perfect. Our ego and our competiveness can sometimes block us from being vulnerable and admitting that we need help. Our dreams and our goals can not be achieved alone, we need others to get us there. If there is someone out there who has the same interests as you, do not fear them…invite them into your lives. Doing so could yield powerful results and quite possible an unbreakable bond.

To that avail, I would like to introduce Samantha, our new contributing writer for BXTRA. Samantha has an interest in blogging, vlogging, graphic design, and motivational speaking to name a few. She enjoys meeting new people, hearing their stories, and seeing what the world has to offer. With many skills, passions, and a very warm personality, it’s safe to say that Samantha is nothing less than extraordinary! Be sure to look out for her articles and other upcoming works!
