What are your plans after you graduate?
I would like to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, but my parents want me to attend another school for at least a year first, so I can be closer to home until I adjust. But I would like to become a fashion designer.

A rabbit named Pancake and a dog named Mike McCarthy.
What is one skill you think everyone should have?
Belief in oneself. It is so important because people may come and go, but you are guaranteed to have yourself for the rest of your life, so you need to be calm and confident in who you are and how you act.
