Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight goes to 22 year old blogger and medical student Kamogelo Thutoetsile aka Camwithlove from Cambridge ,UK. Besides her chic style , Cam is a Motswana medical student at the University of Cambridge with a love for art, poetry and fashion. Her goal is to live out every dream ,every love and learn and inspire in the process oh.. and let’s not forget start a fashion line ! . Check out more below !
Q: What do you love about fashion ?
Kam: The voice it gives us all.
Q: How would you describe your style ?:
Kam: Chic and elegant
Q: Where are your favorite places to shop ?:
Kam: Wow, ok, loads: Zara, top shop,h&m, Asos, misguided, also custom made things
Q: What kind of fashion line do you want to start ?
Kam: It would be for women (LOL), I reckon ages 18-45, the audience that is currently attracted to the blog.
Q: What do you plan to accomplish once you graduate from medical school ?
Kam: I plan to have launched an online fashion/luxury brand by then , something my country currently does not have. In addition to practicing medicine and doing a lot of voluntary work and teaching I want it to be very evident to the young girls in Botswana and elsewhere , that you can be anything and everything you want to .
It just takes a lot more hard-work, and time , but it can be done; that you do not have to be one thing . Creativity is something that shouldn’t be killed or hidden, it should be shown off.
Q: What obstacles have you had being a medical student ?
Kam: It is so hard. This is not an understatement, I’ve never been this challenged mentally, spiritually and emotionally in my life . What makes it easier.
I have learned , is creating, you know staying true to the little girl in me. Meeting people of different sorts as well helps (even the bread man in the town market).
Q: What kind of art and poetry do you like?
Kam: The honest type. What I means is poetry that reflects our times because that’s what good art is about . So Warsan Shire has been one of my favorites for a while now. Richard Siken, the honesty , the rawness the way he tells stories is beautiful. And recently Justina Kehinde, who’s just graduated from Cambridge actually, and her poetry is moving, it forces you to think and I love that.
Q: What are your plans for 2016 ? Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?
Kam: Graduate, travel, read more books, hopefully start a fashion line or lay the ground work at the very least , practicing medicine, preparing to specialize in something neurology related (I love the brain) .Running or at least laying the ground work for this epic fashion line I’ve been dreaming about. I see a lot of teaching, travelling , and of course I see myself doing the things I love doing and perhaps new things, who knows…
