Q: How does one intern and go to school (AND WORK) at the same time?!? What did those days look like for you?

last summer i interned 9-6, worked retail 6-10, and did homework 11-1am. this summer looks similar, minus the retail job (thank goodness). but you gotta do what you gotta do. somehow i still have friends (and a boyfriend), so it IS possible. just be ready to feel pretty bummed when all of your friends are traveling, going to festivals, drinking on rooftops, etc. and you’re just…. working.

i’ve gotten used to it at this point. #everydayimhustlin

Q: Why did you go to LIM instead of FIT? And how was your overall experience?

i liked the campus better and was also offered a pretty big scholarship at LIM. i also liked that it was smaller. overall it felt like a better fit for me because i was focused more on the business side of fashion. FIT has those offerings too, but isn’t as narrowed in on what i wanted to study.

LIM gets a bad rap, but your time there is what you make it. i got pretty involved in the school’s community (i was an RA, a tutor in the writing center, in the honors program, etc.) and formed a tight-knit group of friends that made it all worthwhile. some classes were difficult, others were so stupid i wanted to bang my head against a wall. but overall, i got the experience i needed to get ahead in the industry and was offered a full-time job before I’d even graduated. so I’d say I got what I needed to get out of my time there.
