How far would you go for fashion? Better yet, how far would you go for your dream job? In the movie The Devil Wears Prada, Andy interns for the top fashion editor, Miranda Priestly, to secure future opportunities in her career. In the end, she realizes that all she has compromised for the job most girls would kill for isn't worth losing herself for. She stretched herself to the limit and went to every extreme that Miranda pushed her towards.

Well, I am sad to say that I am one the most girls who would lose herself and kill for that job. I know that dignity is everything and self-respect is most important. However, I want my dreams to come true. I always get- "Math major? You want to work for a magazine? How does that work?" I have started say- "Why can't I?" I like Math. It challenges me to use my imagination and to think outside of the box. Isn't that a quality an editor of any magazine should have to keep the publication fresh and new? I want to prove everyone wrong. So I am willing to do what it takes... well that's what I say until I actually experience it. That's why I had Math as a "fall back plan" because I didn't think I was strong enough for the Fashion industry. But this past year, I have realized that I am stronger than what I thought I was. So don't see my sneakers and gold jewelry and sell me short of anything fashionable; I'm coming for your MY Top Spot.

Miranda Priestly: No, no, you chose. You chose to get ahead. You want this life. Those choices are necessary. Andy Sachs: But what if this isn't what I want? I mean what if I don't wanna live the way you live? Miranda Priestly: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Andrea. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.
