At the age of twenty-four I still had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I had an interest in fashion, but I was uncertain what my future would hold. So I decided to go to school and major in fashion design and Merchandising. School was never my strongest point, but I knew if I wanted to have a career that was the sacrifice I had to make. I enjoyed the decision because for the first time in my life I was doing what I really loved.

During my time in school, I also landed a job within a large global firm I felt I was making progress and it felt good .Because of that I took pride in every thing I did, I worked hard at the office and also in school.

Even though I dreaded this class at the end of this course I never felt more fulfilled. It felt good to know all my time and effort paid off. I remember it took me six weeks just to produce a skirt. I remember it took me six weeks just to produce a skirt. This wasn't any ordinary skirt, though. This is what I called my Versace original. I was so amazed by my finished product.
