Many talk about living their dreams, but what happens when you finally say no to fear and yes to your true calling? You get to live a life of purpose and fulfillment.
xoNecole’s Living My Dream series takes you behind the scenes of the movers, shakers and risk takers who decided that good wasn’t good enough and chose to bet on themselves, both in life and in their careers. The stories of the fearless women featured in this series will both inspire and empower those who are striving to live their best lives, and give the encouragement that they need to create their own destiny.
In episode 1, we are introduced to stylist Ade Samuel as she slays behind the scenes to bring the biggest star’s style identities to life. After starting out as an intern at Teen Vogue, Ade eventually made the big leap to L.A., where she worked on Rihanna’s Styled To Rock, Essence’s “Black Girl Magic” cover shoot and Beyonce’s infamous “Formation” video. Samuel now has her own shoe line and spends her days putting the finishing touches on everyone from Yara Shahidi to Big Sean.
