Who doesn’t get that high when the passion someone has for what you’re doing flows into you? Especially when they are just beginning their journey to reach their aspirations. It is hard not to wish them the best of luck. That is the kind of excitement that rubs off when speaking with musician and entrepreneur Ravahn Duval (aka DUVV).

Every day, Mercedes Morgan ’16 proves that style lives on the Amherst College campus. Morgan’s personal wardrobe serves as an inspiration to many and she is the creator of a fashion blog — clothcampus.tumblr.com — where she writes abut her sense of style and showcases the fashion choices of Amherst students. When I first met Mercedes, she came off as put-together, relaxed, no-nonsense kind of girl. She told me she had seen my outfit in class and that she wanted to put it on her blog. I laughed nervously until she told me not to worry — I could choose whichever picture and angle I wanted.
