How did Fashion Club help you get to where you are now? Fashion Club definitely helped me gain more confidence and leadership knowledge that every leader-in-the-making strives for.
What's your favorite Fashion Club memory? My favorite memory was seeing students connect over similar interests and share their own creative thoughts and ideas with each other. Seeing the creativity in each individual was an unforgettable feeling and experience.
Any advice for current Fashion Club members? Have fun, be outspoken, aspire, and be inspired. There is so much you can do for yourself and others. You will never know what your capable of until you explore your possibilities.
What are your career goals? My plan A is to have my own high fashion line one day. My plan B? Die in the pursuit of plan A.
Do you have an internship? I've already interned for Bibi Bridal Magazine, an Indian bridal company. I will one day intern for Miuccia Prada.
What is your fall fashion must this year? My must have for this fall will be a long fashionable trench coat. They are so sophisticated and exotic. I will definitely NEED one in my closet asap!
Which fashion or beauty trend should just go away?! Mullet dresses. Extreme difference in the mullets bring an unpleasant and un sophisticated look that i do not like to go for in fashion.
What's your favorite drugstore beauty product? Voluminous mascara by L'Oreal—you can find it in any drugstore. I will not go a day without this beauty product. It's the best thing that has ever happened for my eyelashes.
Anything else you'd like to share? While coming into a big city alone, from Texas, I have learned many things about myself. Yes it may seem crazy at first, but you can do it. My dreams are more important than my fears. I chose to put myself in scenarios that will help me grow as a person while benefiting my career as well. I will go as far as I can to accomplish everything I have ever dreamt of. Nothing and no one can stop me. Coming to this big city, alone, to chase my dreams was my first step. The next step? Never giving up. Take your first step.
