Willow Smith banking on 'fashion future'

Willow Smith

Willow Smith has "been writing dozens of letters" to high fashion magazines to secure a column.

The 12-year-old daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is committed to establishing a career in the fashion industry.

The highly ambitious preteen is creating a blog and is hoping to write for a publication like Vogue.

"She's been writing dozens of letters and applications and asking everyone she knows to pull strings for her," a source told Star magazine.

Will and Jada are very supportive of Willow's dreams.

However, the loving parents require that she excel in school.

"They told Willow they'll hire a designer to build her a website-as long as she keeps on top of her school assignments," the source said.

"She hates homework, and her parents always have to stay on her about it; she's convinced that her future is in fashion."

Jada has spoken previously about how she and husband of 14 years Will support their children's creative expression.

"[We] instill the power of individuality," she told People magazine recently.

"We… communicate with our kids in a way that our message overpowers any other message that they get out there."

Social media is all well and good, but it's not a place to be totally uninhibited. Save your innermost thoughts for a diary. A troubled romance has been weighing on your mind. You're tired of compromising for the sake of a demanding partner. Being more assertive is critical to the survival of your relationship. You should have your desires met, too.More
