Humans of CHS: January 2019 Edition
As a tribute to the social media blog "Humans of NY, " the Falcon Press staff decided to create a spin-off entitled, " Humans of CHS. " Staff members will roam the halls weekly until they find a " human" with an inspirational bit of advice, unusual story to tell, or who simply wants to chat about life.
I have taken on an entrepreneurial role in selling my gently worn clothes online. I sell everything from bikinis to jeans and prom dresses. I started selling my clothing as a quick way to make money because I love thrift shopping, but I never wear some of the things I buy. I attempted to sell my clothes at places like Plato’s Closet, but my name brand, gently worn clothes were turned down because they were determined to be ” out of style.” Also, I tried to sell them through online sites including Poshmark and Depop, but Instagram was easier, and faster. I took pictures of me modeling in the clothes I didn’t want and uploaded them onto my Instagram page. Before I knew it, I was swarmed with responses and was making deliveries any chance I could. This opportunity has helped me mature and learn a few business techniques. Also, I have made new friends. Over the course of a month, I have accumulated over $500. I hope to continue my ” business” as long as I can. Follow @shop.nyah to check out all of my clothes available for purchase or go to www.instagram.com/shop.nyah
