A career in Fashion

Chelsea Settles is a typical 23-year-old recent college graduate who has hopes and dreams of pursuing a career in fashion in glamorous Los Angeles. But achieving your dreams is not as easy as it seems when you live in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, have a mother with severe medical conditions, a long distance boyfriend who’s not always there when you need him, and struggle with your weight of 324 pounds. Chelsea’s decision to move across the country is not without reservations. With a severely diabetic mom who has been in and out of hospitals for years and in need of kidney and pancreas transplants, to a boyfriend who would rather Chelsea follow him in his military pursuits instead of fulfilling her dreams of making a life for herself in L.A., she grapples with making one of the most difficult choices she’s ever had to make. Not only is moving to L.A. a chance for Chelsea to jumpstart a career in the fashion world, but also an opportunity to expand her social life by confronting the social phobias that have been holding her back and to take control of her weight in effort to get healthy. In the end, she stays true to herself and commits to the move. After arriving on the West Coast, Chelsea must deal with the stresses that typically come with relocating to a new city – stresses that can make transitioning to a healthier lifestyle even more difficult. From moving into a new place and having a roommate for the first time to finding a job, committing to a trainer, and getting a first-hand look at the L.A. social scene – Chelsea quickly realizes that her new environment may not be everything she thought or hoped. - MTV Press
