Describe your personal style?
My style is unique, innovative, edgy. I am not the typical fashionista you’d see walking down 27th Street. I dress to express instead of dressing to impress. When people ask me what my fashion secret is I usually let them know that it’s not about the brands I wear, it’s about confidence. Style is a personal choice.
Where do you go on your breaks from class?
During my breaks from class I try to explore the college. I might go to Gigi Cafe; they have a great selection of foods. Their 10% discount for FIT Students is convenient and saves us a couple of cents. Hey!– It’s college money we’re talking about.
What is your favorite thing about FIT?
FIT is the school where people express who they really are. I was looking for a college that was far away from the typical school that emphasized just on Math and Science. I found FIT. Pursuing a higher degree of education is only valid, in my opinion, if I study what I enjoy. Success will come eventually.
Who or what inspires you?
New York City inspires me. This city has such a positive energy… not only because of the lights at Times Square… New Yorkers have a sympathy for freedom– which allows us to express our minds and advance in creativity.
What do you want to do after you graduate from college?
I want to become successful in the Fashion Business Industry. Talent is just the beginning.
