I grew up being a huge fan of Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen, aka the Olsen Twins. For those who don’t know, they got their start as babies in Full House. I grew up watching them play Michelle Tanner. Later on, I would watch their other movies, tv shows, read the books they came out in, played with the barbies they sold, and even played video games made after them. As you can see, I was a really big fan of them. To this day, I still have many of their books and dvds.
They have inspired me in so many ways. They are the reason I decided I wanted to start my own business. Not only start a business, but start my own brand. They created a brand of many products that they used to sell at Walmart, such as clothes, books, dolls, etc. This is still my dream, though I am working on this very slowly.
They are also the reason I spent 10 years wanting to go to the Mall of America, which I did in December 2014 with my sister. We had so much fun on our first trip together.
Because of the Olsen twins, I also wanted to be a clothes designer and go to FIDM. Two of my friends and I were planning to start a clothing line called TMS. That didn’t happen because I realized I don’t have a good sense of fashion, but at least I got to visit FIDM when I was younger.
These are a few ways that the Olsen Twins have inspired me over the last 20 years or so. I hope that 2020 is the year I can finally reach my goals and make the 9 year old me proud.
