Were you always set on this major? What drew you to Marist's program?
I was always pretty set on studying fashion here at Marist. We have an incredible fashion program here with amazing study abroad opportunities and internship connections.
What advice would you give to incoming fashion students?
My advice to students would be just to sign up to do everything! Take advantage of every opportunity made available to you here because who knows when else you'll get the same opportunity! Be proactive. Find your passions. And surprise everyone by what you can accomplish. Oh, and most importantly, enjoy every second.
