about me I am a well-rounded fashion professional. I will graduate in May of 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Marketing and Management, as well as a minor in Design Arts and Graphic Design. I have experience in graphic design from working at a graphic design company for three years. I am currently working two retail jobs to add to my skillset. I feel my experience in product developement, fashion illustration, logo design and marketing, graphic design, and management training will be an asset to many fashion companies.
