Give it 100 percent. It's tough sometimes to pull an all-nighter and work so many hours on a project, but it'll be worth it!”

What are the best parts about your job?
“Every day is different! I se my own hours and make each decision myself. Some days I'm shopping at thrift stores looking for new pieces or I'm doing a photo shoot, and other days I'm designing new graphics for the web site. Another great part of my job is getting to chat with and meet people people from all over the country. Being an onwer of an online shop, 60 percent of my customers are international! Ive made a lot of exciting contact and have made a lot of foreign friends.”

How did you select your major?
“I chose Visual Communications because it was a design major without Fashion Design. I love desigining but I've never like sewing. I wanted to style, photograph, an do graphics. Luckily, Visual Communications allows you to do so much in the fashion industry. From styling to space planning to logo design, it's such a versatile major! I wouldn't have my business today if it weren't for everything I learned in Visual Communications.”
