From the runway to your personal closet, be it advice on the proper attire, or suggestions on how to live life to the fullest, readers throughout the world are being inspired by Glenda K. Harrison, author, freelance style contributor, and the creator of the fashion and lifestyle blog, So What to Twenty. The name, So What to Twenty, came about when Harrison decided she wanted to give a voice, and demonstrate the vibrancy in women over the age of twenty – an age which seems to be the coveted within the fashion industry.
Harrison, a graduate from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California, grew-up knowing fashion would one day have a special place in her life. The death of her mother spurred Harrison in 2008 to launch A Daughter’s Heart, a cancer support service which partnered with hospitals to provide love and support to women undergoing cancer treatments. After 8 years of serving her community through A Daughter’s Heart, she was finally able to bury her mother in her heart. She knew her mother would have wanted her to move forward with her own life ambitions. She put aside that work to focus on her lifelong dream of touching lives through her writing.
Although Harrison’s life had been met with many painful life lessons, her love for fashion and style always remained steadfast in her life. Now she encourages women to focus on the importance of self-love and using one’s God-given gifts and talents. Her blog, So What to Twenty, inspires readers to view fashion as an all-encompassing vehicle, and for women to explore their personal gifts, style, femininity, and, most importantly, inner beauty.
Harrison is a freelance contributing writer and has authored two books:
A Place Called Peace – Glenda K Harrison shows how painful life lessons can lead to personal growth and triumph in this compelling and inspiring memoir of her journey to find peace and wholeness.
True Style: A Look Beyond the Surface – Style Contributor, Glenda K. Harrison, gives substance to the meaning of Style by cleverly unraveling the traits, as well as the wardrobe mastery; and then beautifully weaving together the person who encompasses this multi-faceted word.
