Hometown: Philadelphia, PA (Upper Dublin High School)

What do you like most about LIM College?
It provides a realistic way for students who are passionate about fashion to pursue their dream careers. Many people don’t see fashion as a “serious industry,” but coupling it with a business degree allows students to pursue so many kinds of career opportunities.

When you were applying to colleges, what were you most worried about?
I was concerned that I’d be “stuck” in whatever city where that college was located. That’s why I chose to go to college in New York (Hofstra University). The possibilities here were endless and I knew I would never feel stuck when there are so many options to explore.

Advice for applicants:
Follow your heart. The fashion industry can be tough, but LIM can help you create the life you’ve always wanted.

What’s your favorite Instagram account?
@NYCFoodComa — I love exploring new places in the city — and she always knows the spots with the best cheese pulls.

Worst Cooks in America. I would most definitely qualify.
