What made you want to pursue your area of study?
I have always been fascinated with design, luxury brand marketing, fashion marketing, fashion magazine editorials and runway shows. Fashion is an art, a form of expression, and my favorite way to express my creativity.

How have your studies and time at TCU prepared you for this role?
I feel very prepared for this role. My courses in fashion marketing, digital design, merchandise buying, product development and global fashion consumers have provided the knowledge and skills I can apply to my career interests and achieve success in the fashion industry.

TCU’s Center for Career & Professional Development was especially beneficial in helping me have everything in place to land the perfect internship. I also had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester and explore leading fashion capitals, including Milan, London, Paris, Barcelona, Florence among others.

What advice would you give to other Fashion Merchandising students?
I have an amazing impression of my internship experience thus far and recommend applying for internships to work with high-end designers, stylists, celebrities and marketing in Hollywood.

I have also realized the importance of networking in the Los Angeles fashion industry. My supervisors are well-connected with industry talent and designers and have introduced me to clients visiting the showroom. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and love coming to my internship every day. My team is driven to be the best in the industry, and it motivates me to do my best each day.
