What You Can Learn from Aaron “Medusa Son” Hilton, aka Pegasus, the Homeless Celebrity Fashion Designer
The path your life takes is dependent on how determined and focused you are on achieving your dreams. While everyone has a dream, the task is finding a way to achieve your dreams. Some give up mid-away, and others still push on until they accomplish their goals.
Often, people tend to let circumstances control either their present or the future and blame those circumstances for their failures in life. However, for influencer and celebrity fashion designer Aaron Hilton aka Pegasus, no circumstance is strong enough to stop him from following his passion.
Aaron Hilton was born and raised in Cleveland, and later moved to LA. Aaron “Medusa Son”, aka Pegasus, is a celebrated fashion designer for Land Hilton, a top influencer, and a recording artist. He has so far designed for notable names, such as Young Thug, Desto Dubb owner of “That’s A Awful Lot Of Cough Syrup,” Drakeo The Ruler, Kehlani, and TikTok influencer Leon Zellers among others.
From being homeless to a sought-after celebrity fashion designer, Pegasus continues to defy all odds. Looking back, Pegasus says what kept him going was his passion and love for music and fashion design. When you are homeless, you have no stability, he says. The fashion and entertainment industry is overflowing with talent making it harder for new talents to penetrate the industry. Even though he was well aware of all this, Pegasus did not hold back from following his passions. Instead, he worked harder, and through perseverance and determination, he was able to establish his spot in the industry.
No situation lasts forever, says Pegasus. As long as you are determined to change your current situation, then you can do it! Much like moving on from failure, similarly, you should not dwell too long on your current situation but instead work towards making it better. With nothing but time, Pegasus was able to make his dream a reality.
He now inspires other people, especially the young, to make proper use of their time. He stresses the value of learning to create your own opportunities and exploring beyond your potential.
In his words, life is all about taking a leap of faith. While some people are skeptical about stepping into the unknown, the result of doing so can be very rewarding. To achieve greatness either in your life or business, risks are inevitable. Unless you take risks, you will never know the outcome. Even so, it is important to take calculated risks, says Pegasus.
Speaking of the challenges in the industry, Pegasus notes that society often portrays public figures as people who rarely have struggles. On the contrary, no matter how successful you are, you can still be facing difficult situations, says Pegasus. By sharing his day-to-day struggles, Pegasus inspires and motivates people going through similar situations and gives them hope that they can also do it!
Consistency defeats the enemy, notes Pegasus. While some people will tell you, you can’t make it, that should never be a reason to give up. All that matters is your passion, consistency, and determination.
You are not your circumstances. As Pegasus continues to thrive, he proves circumstances should never stop you from pursuing your passion and reaching your goals.
