About Agnes: I work in Finance and live in the Boston suburbs. I grew up in Southern Africa and moved to the United States several years ago with $200 and a dream. Moving to a new continent solo was one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have done. I truly believe that my journey is a true testament that you can be whoever you want to be with hard work and perseverance.
I have a huge love for classic style and love to dress up in general. (I am that girl wearing heels on casual Friday) Audrey Hepburn is my all time favorite style icon and Victoria Beckam is my favorite modern style icon. Food is a huge passion of mine, I love to cook and eat mostly healthy delicious meals but believe that an occasional indulgence is fine. Fun fact: I often pretend I am on a cooking show when I am in the kitchen, I find it brings out my creative juices.
I love to surround myself with beautiful things especially in my home as decorating is one of my favorite things to do. I have the skill of finding the most stunning and unique pieces in the most unlikely places.
Things that truly make me happy are time with family, a relaxing vacation, when my house is clean and whenever I am hanging out with my Fiancé Marcus.
