Describe your personal style?
I love mixing different fabrics and mixing edgy with chic like rough leather and printed fabrics. I also like mixing high end pieces with affordable clothing. My style is all about mixing and layering. 

Where do you go on your breaks from class?
I usually stay in the classroom during breaks. I enjoy being ahead of the game and finishing my projects before the deadline. If I do go on break, I usually run across the street to Dunkin’ Donuts and get coffee.

What is your favorite thing about FIT?
I love how excited everyone is about fashion here! Everyone knows exactly what they want to do here, and we’re all working towards our goals with ambition.

Who or what inspires you?
I’m very easily inspired. I get inspiration from artwork and nature. I’m also inspired by the cultures of people, their customs, and over all way of life.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college?
After I graduate I plan on getting a job working for a magazine. I want to style for photo shoots and possibly style for celebrities. I want a job that is exciting and keeps me on the edge of my seat.
