I am a junior working towards a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Apparel Design. I enjoy designing as a creative outlet but also like the more number-driven side of merchandising. I hope to live in New York City after graduation and pursue a career in the industry that allows me to use this variety of interests and skills. I am currently studying in Hong Kong for the spring semester, and am enjoying not only the educational opportunity at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, but also the full experience of living in an new, inspiring environment. I have loved traveling since spending a semester in Denmark as an exchange student during high school. In my free time I love to exercise and run and spend time outdoors, preferably at the beach, and usually accompanied by good friends. Cooking and eating anything with peanut butter is another one of my favorite hobbies. Before my first internship this past summer, I have worked as a waitress for several years, among other jobs, and all of this experience has helped me to garner a range of knowledge that has allowed me to develop a hardworking attitude and accomplish tasks with spirit. This summer I will embark on a new internship with Burlington Coat Factory's buying team in Burlington, New Jersey. I am a happy person and my pastimes and my field of study enthuse me; I look forward to where they will take me.
