Describe your personal style? My style ranges from urban edgy looks to cutesier looks some times. It’s hard to describe; I wear what I like.
Where do you go on your breaks from class? I’ll sometimes go to Starbucks, or Gig’s Café to get a drink or I will sit outside with friends around campus.
What is your favorite thing about FIT? I really love the location, I love NYC and art so the whole combination is perfect.
Who or what inspires you? I get inspired by a lot… from seeing people in the streets, & loving their outfit or looking through magazines & being inspired by all the professionals. However, I do think I’m mostly inspired by day-to-day life.
What do you want to do after you graduate from college? I want to become a successful fashion designer, so after college, I would like to be on that path of finding an internship/ jobs guiding me into the fashion industry.
