I'm an Iowa native and 2017 high school graduate. For as long as I can remember, I have had a great interest in fashion and the way clothing makes a person feel. I decided as a freshman in high school that this passion of mine was a risky, but exciting career path that I was interested in taking. As a student at Iowa State, I am majoring in Apparel Merchandising and Design, specializing in design, and minoring in French. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, shopping, watching TV, and hiking.
Fall 2017, I joined Trend Magazine as an Editorial committee member I wrote monthly articles for the magazine's online issue and had a total of three stories published. Spring 2018, I joined the Trend for Men Accessories committee. As a committee member I made mood boards ad help plan and coordinate outfits, accessories, and props for the photoshoot.
I applied to be a member for a TFS committee Fall 2017 and was ecstatic to receive a position on the Design team which is the most difficult to be offered as a freshman, so I'm told. The design committee is responsible for handling garments backstage, dressing models, contacting and choosing judges, planning and hosting Meet the Judges day, and making sure the show goes as smooth as possible backstage to make onstage presentation look effortless.
