Pre-College Courses: Hem Sewing

Describe your personal style:  It depends on the day. Some days I love clean elegance. Others it’s dark and flowy. But I have always loved all black with a pop of color.

Where do you go on your breaks from class?
 Either Starbucks or I wander the halls.

What is your favorite thing about FIT?
 It’s very hands on. There’s no micro managing and I’m free to express my personal style.

Who or what inspires you?
 Alexander McQueen, food, different patterns I see around, friends, music, anime, nature

What do you want to do after you graduate from college? I’m not really sure yet. I’m interested in alot of different things but fashion is either #1 or #2 on my list.

Precollege Courses: Creating the Fashion Figure

Describe your personal style: Most of time, I would describe it as “comfy-chic” but when I dress to impress, I would say I have an urban/indie style.

Where do you go on your breaks from class? Usually I stay inside and work on my design. Sometimes I do run across the street to buy some supplies.

What is your favorite thing about FIT? I love the fact that you can walk around the halls, and there is inspiration and creativity all around you.

Who or what inspires you? Culture inspires me. I’m fascinated by different cultures and their traditions/beliefs.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college? My end goal is to possibly work for the Human Rights Council, but before that, I want to be able to wake up every morning, and be enthusiastic about my job.
