What clubs, athletics, organizations have you been involved in at Lasell?
I involved in Lasell's Career Closet which will provide professional attire rental and styling services for students attending conferences, interviews, corporate trips, and more.

How has your academic program provided you with opportunities for growth?
I have had several opportunities to broaden my horizons and venture outside of my comfort zone due in a large part to the School of Fashion.

What was the "thing" that made you know that Lasell was right for you?
Being able to communicate and connect with professors made me feel understood and heard. This is how I knew Lasell was where I needed to be.

What is one experience you’ve had within the classroom that you were instantly able to apply to your life/career/internships?
On multiple occasions, Professor McKinnon would introduce real business study cases to us and these really stuck with me. Seeing how others operate their businesses fascinated me since it was something I want to do someday.

How did the Fashion program positively influence your career/life?
My academic curriculum combined fashion and entrepreneurship which had a significant impact on my career goals by combining business savvy with artistic expression. This helped me clearly identify the goals I plan to reach.
