Joy a feeling of great pleasure and happiness
Since our humble beginnings in 2015, F.A.S.H has been a joy to develop and grow. From early mornings to late nights, slaving over concepts, wardrobe, and color schemes, it somehow never felt like work. That’s when I knew I had found my niche...my element..my true sense of joy.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself.” These words really shook me and helped me realize that you have to trust the process and redirect your initial definition and expectations of the root of true joy. Joy should come from the struggle AND the triumph. So, in everything I do and strive to be, joy must be at the core. It’s my hope that our creation reaches heights we could never imagine and ignites an unstoppably wild fire of joy not just within ourselves but in everyone that wants to fearlessly aspire to something higher.
