I am honored to partake in the "First & Forever" campaign, and upon being asked by Dr. Martens & Lookbook to describe in a few words a "First", or life-defining moment, I would have to say..
"High School Graduation. More than academics and a farewell to the drama. The necessity for a thought running deeper than the surface of curriculum. The beginning of a personal reinvention. Defining one's self outside the confines of cliques, cliches, and coersion. I was, I am. Free to be."
The "Jeffery" boot, by Dr. Martens symbolizes a maturity with a clean & classic silhouette.
