New York, NY

I became interested in fashion design and sewing at the age of 12. My mother and grandmother were seamstresses. Currently, I teach psychology at a college in NYC; however, I have been taking fashion design courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. I was accepted into the A.A.S.
