Tell us a little about yourself. I love to dance! Dance and fashion have always been my passions and I can't imagine life without them. I'm obsessed with Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, and their fashion inspires me immensely!

What are your proudest accompishments so far? Getting into FIDM, graduating from my high school with academic and athletic honors, being on one of the best unprofessional dance companies in the nation, and performing at Radio City Music Hall.

What made FIDM right for you? I fell in love with the school from the moment I even heard about it. It's not a traditional university and that's exactly what I'm looking for. When I visited last spring, it only made my decision to apply and hopefully go there that much more simple. It has the perfect major for me that no other school has because I'm interested in fashion and business.

Describe your entrance project. I chose the store Forever 21 and took three dresses and changed a few aspects of each to make them better in my opinion and sketched the new dress out.

What are your career goals? To be the head of a major fashion empire one day and to travel the world.

What do you expect to learn at FIDM? I expect to learn everything that I possibly can at FIDM. I want to know everything about to industry and how it works, along with the skills I will need to succeed in it. I'm so excited to learn about what I will hopefully be doing for the rest of my life.
