What I used to decorate my cap were burgundy ribbons, tacky glue, needle and black tread, silver-sparkly fabric paint, a silver bow, and silver and sparkling star stickers.

This is how I  decorated my cap:

If you didn’t notice in the picture that there is only one white star and the rest are all silver. The white star is ME! The concept of the stars means I was born to be unique and to stand out! The stars also presents dreams leads to success.  For dreamers, “never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one’s time. For dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds of our future.” I used burgundy ribbons for the boarders around my cap. The ribbon always matches with my stole. I wrote a small quote on the cap “Keep Moving Forward.” There is a longer version to this quote, it says “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” The quote is by Walt Disney and is one of my favorite quote of all time.  This quote speaks for itself.  I constantly reflect my life around this quote whether I am going through obstacles and challenges in my life, making happy and new memories, or achieving success in my life. I should always be open to new opportunities and learning new experiences and taking risks in life because being curious leads me to new paths. And adding the silver bow on the bottom of my cap made everything look perfect!
