“RISD is a part of the creative pantheon. Rhode Island School of Design raises the eyebrows of people inside and outside the artist community. You don't build a name and reputation like that without a consistent program and high standards, both of which I wanted to learn from. I was surprised to find out about [...]

I then took the Upcycled Couture: Refashioning Garments course offered through RISD Summer Programs and went into it with little knowledge of sewing. When I left, I had the skills to sew by myself. Every day I learned something [...]
