Hello! I am a 20-year-old fashion merchandising student attending Virginia Commonwealth University. I grew up in the small town of Culpeper, Virginia and decided to move to Richmond after high school to pursue a greater education and my dreams of working within the fashion industry. The saying "work hard, play hard" is what I try to live by and follow this mindset in everything I do. I attempt to make the most out of every experience and I believe that life is too short to not do something you're passionate about. I have been working in retail for two years and am always seeking experiences to grow and further develop my personal brand. When I'm not at work, you can find me planning trips, hanging out with friends, and going to the park. I believe in making an impact in whatever I do while keeping an optimistic mindset. I am interested in going into the product development field as my creative and analytical background would prove beneficial.
