Step Up Senior Send Off




On June 30th, I went to the Step Up Senior Send Off. An event for all of the teens who are headed off to college this Fall and are finishing up their time as teens with Step Up. Once they graduate they are automatically signed up as members with Step Up, so they can give back and share their experience with the next generation of teens. The best part - the college application and acceptance rate for Step Up teens is 100%.

Inspired By Issue No. 4 - Katrina Connelly, Chief Administrative Officer at Faraci Lange

Alexis and I met during our freshman year of college at the Fashion Institute of Technology one night when we all went out to the local FIT bar, and we've been friends ever since! After our freshman year, we both moved to the same upper east side neighborhood in Manhattan and lived within a block from each other for the next 6 years or so. Today she is one of the few people I still keep in touch with from my NYC days now that I am living back in Upstate New York!

Inspired By Issue No. 2 - Aja Campbell, our NY Brand Ambassador

Aja Campbell is a long time friend - we met folding clothes at a SOHO boutique (can't believe that was almost 10 years ago!), and we also both happened to go to FIT. I'm proud to say that she is an Alexis Mera Brand Ambassador! What does that mean? I feel she radiates what we as a brand believe in. Being strong, being independent, making yourself happy, and working hard everyday to achieve your success. Keyword, YOUR success.
