When I was about five years old, my older sister who was 18 at the time started a routine with me where every morning when it was time to get dressed she would lay out about ten of my garments and asked me to choose my own outfit. This became one of my favorite parts of the day and I quickly realized my love for fashion would one day be my career. As I grew up, fashion became a core component of our incredibly strong sisterly bond. My sister was born with a rare genetic connective tissue disorder called Marfan's Syndrome, and has overcome many challenges learning to navigate the world as a disabled person. Buying clothes that fit my sister's needs has always been one of the challenges we have struggled with a lot together. I saw that there are many gaps in the apparel industry that do not meet the needs of consumers like my sister. This led me to pursue a degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising and during my time at San Francisco State University, I have been empowered through my education to use my professional career to make buying clothes an inclusive, fun experience for everyone.
