Happy Monday Bombshell!
Not going to lie…Monday’s can be the least exciting day of the week but this morning was different! Today Feven received the awesome news she made Top 5 for a chance to win a custom DVF FIAT 500x Crossover after responding to a tweet.
The question posed: “How I became the woman I wanted to be.” It was difficult to explain our journey to Eritrea to America in 140 characters but Feven summed it up beautifly: “From Eritrea to a refugee camp in Sudan, I carry the pride of my people & the strength of my mother. #DVFxFIATcontest.” And it’s true – everything we are we owe to our country and to our family.
As Feven mentioned in her Instagram post:
“It would be remiss of me not to mention my motherland & my mother. even my father would tell you my mother’s strength, sense of pride and self is what fueled our American dream. @dvf represents all of that and it would be a complete honor to ride around #LA as an extension of this incredible brand. with that said, please vote not just for me, but for all the hard-working women out there doing their thing and wearing a dress! (thank you @fiatusa for this opportunity as well.)”

p.s. if that picture above looks familiar it’s because it’s from our DVF: Journey of a Dress post from January 2014! Yes, we continue to be inspired and revived by DVF.
