At 12, with the help of my grandmother, I began sewing. Upon entering college, I began participating in Collegiate Fashion Association fashion shows. In 2017, I then entered the Lake Charles Fashion Week Young Designer Competition and was labeled Designer of the Year. This confidence builder pushed me to enroll in the top 20 fashion design school ESMOD, in Paris, France. This 2018 I was asked to participate in a fundraiser held by the Audi Dealership to support special needs children.
