austin meetups

So sad to hear about @laurensaysrelax, I had the pleasure of meeting her at Snark and the Austin Meetup (above pic was @mjincognito memory from 4 years ago today) She was very kind and special to so many. Prayers to Daniel and her family.

“When I first began as a Lead BA for BANGS I was in a bad place in life. In complete isolation. As time went on I realised that this community isn’t just for shoes, it isn’t just for social media, it’s for family and helping others together. This past weekend in Austin as a Mentor, was my first time ever in TX and it could not have been a better time. I finally got to meet my internet friends and establish a real, tangible, supportive family. Each person with their own background, personality, outlook on life, and quirks. Yet we all connected, held each other up, and made each other laugh in some way. Like a family should, like a family does. Together we #liveBANGS“

“2 years ago, I wouldn’t have thought that I would fly out to Texas to meet people. I thought this company would just be a casual, fun experience where I could practice photography skills. Now I know that it is so much more. This community is so diverse and strong, and I feel so honored to be a part of it. Every single person I met in ATX was so interesting and genuine, and I can’t stop thinking about how BANGS gave me this opportunity. Now I always think of my amazing friends whenever I think of BANGS, and I cannot be more grateful for this company. (now this sounds so serious but i need to stop here before i start crying i love my BANGS bffs so much)”
