Student Network Member Quotes

"I joined the Fashion Zone Steering Committee with the goal to raise awareness about the valuable opportunities in design, fashion, and technology that this community has to offer to students across The Creative School. Joining this team has allowed me to meet and work with like-minded individuals who would like to develop annual programming that can further support student success and development of core interpersonal skills." - Jasmeet Rattan

"The associate program allowed me to apply skills and concepts I learned from classes into a real-life venture. It helped me develop my professional and technical skills as well as gave me the professional experience that has led me to gain more experiences than ever before! Working with a start-up allowed me to gain new skills fast and better adapt to the challenges and opportunities of building a brand. I joined the steering committee because I wanted to help new creative professionals gain the tools, resources, and information they need to enter and make their mark in the ever-changing fashion industry today." - Ricardo Felix
