Describe your personal style.
My style is ever changing, but one of my favorite looks is a mix between tough and feminine. I love mixing girly pieces with rugged beats and leather. I also love vintage items.

I get lunch and go to Starbucks.

A person who inspires me as far as style is Rumi Neely and her effortlessness. Something that inspires me is alternative music because I love how it makes me feel; it makes me feel free and happy.
What are your favorite things about FIT?
My favorite is that you’re learning from professors who have first hand experiences in the fashion industry.
What do you want to do after you graduate from College?
I want to become a professional celebrity stylist. I would also possibly like to become a designer.
