Precollege Course: HAC 066: Digital and Interactive Marketing

Describe your personal style?
I personally dress from all departments of a store.  I don’t feel the need to restrict fashion to a certain gender.  To me, clothes are clothes, and I can rock it as long as it matches my makeup.
Where do you go on your breaks from class?
I always go to Starbucks!  I don’t sleep enough, ever!
What is your favorite thing about FIT?
My favorite thing about FIT is the accepting, supporting, and uplifting community of like-minded individuals who all come from different backgrounds but work together to learn.
Who or what inspires you?
Besides big influencers like Manny Mua, Jeffree Star, and James Charles, music inspires me the most.
What do you want to do after you graduate from College?
I want to continue my career in cosmetics marketing.  I have already started unlike most of my peers.
