Despite the risk that comes with pursuing a fashion career, Sutton wants nothing more than to go after her dreams and live the life she always wanted. She got conservative by going into finance, allowing her issues with her mother and the fear of not being able to support herself goad her away from her passion, and she’s realized that now is as good a time as any to correct that mistake.
