What was it that brought you to Lasell?
Although I have known for some time that I wanted to become a writer in the fashion industry, I wasn’t sure if schools even had a similar major. I was so impressed when I came to Lasell and learned about the amazing fashion program.

Any internship you may have done, or are looking to do?
I’m hoping that during my time at Lasell, I can have an internship writing for a publication or working for a PR Firm in Boston.

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
My favorite spot on campus is the Donahue Center for Creative & Applied Arts. All of my fashion and communication classes are held there and it’s always great to look at the display cases and look into the sewing labs to see what fashion students are designing.

Favorite class you have taken at Lasell?
My favorite class that I have taken at Lasell was Fashion 101: Contemporary Issues in Fashion. It was the first class I took pertaining to my major and I found the course material to be so interesting.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
Going into the city with friends to go shopping and try different restaurants is my favorite. Sports games are also so much fun!

Give an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share with your peers or a tour.
One of the highlights from my freshman year was being able to model and participate in the Fashion Show. It was amazing to see all the work that goes into it and I am really looking forward to when it is my turn to help put it together!
