A truly stunning experience. 💫
This is taken at the Morgan Library & Museum, housing the private library of J.P. Morgan! 🤩
To me, he is the founder of the US finance system and even corporate America. His riches and education are beyond imagination. Look at all these delicate books! A devoted supporter of the arts and religion, he also collected ancient Egyptian and Medieval artworks.
Looking at all these, at first I felt overwhelmed by his broad scope of interests and dedication. He committed to not just finance, but also entrepreneurship, arts, education, religion and politics. Through one man and one family's impact, he made a mark in history.
This library made me feel very, very little. I felt my ambitions and goals are belittled, compared to this giant of everything.
But then, I felt grateful.
I felt grateful that even though I came from a normal family and did not (yet) make history in any ways, I got to enjoy the many privileges that only aristocrats in the past could.
I could play the piano and read music sheets; I have traveled to 4 continents and studied in France and the US. I got advanced education and got to see the world.
While my ambitions felt belittled, I suddenly realized my troubles and worries were ignorable, too. What matters anyways? Jobs, relationships and getting old? J.P. Morgan wouldn’t care about these things either, because he had better things to achieve!
Thank you, J.P. Morgan!
I hope you are watching me ponder at your portrait here and think that “This girl is silly.”
Please wish me lots and lots of luck ahead, sir!

DW: “After #internationalwomensday has passed, we will continue to celebrate international women. It’s in our DNA. ♥️ And so is our commitment to challenging the idea of “the girl next door”. ...as is our commitment to challenging the idea of what we’ve been taught, in terms of beauty standards. #globalgirlnextdoor 👈🏽 .
Our international woman is a force. ....a force of worldliness, sophistication, magnetism, intellect and ideas. Designing looks befitting her power (your power) is a joy! ...and we honestly can not wait to share. .
There’s a certain delicate beauty missing from ‘the Gram’ these days. We’re determined to bring it back. .
At #sagexjeune we believe the DNA of a company’s commitment to global beauty, starts from the top...not at castings. And as the founder of this company, I get final say. “-every girl, everywhere-“ isn’t just a slogan, it’s our pledge.
