likes most about kent state university:
Students and Colleagues are diverse and can learn so much from them. The fast pace of fashion force us to be current and relevant. The university community is as warm as the city of Kent. We help each other and see ourselves as doing and excellent job for our students, the university and state of Ohio.
ATTRACTION TO KENT STATE UNIVERSITY AS AN EMPLOYER:
The faculty of the fashion school are ranked among the best in the country. The output is substantial and the personalities reflect an academic as well as a well-rounded individual. Trips to conferences and watching how well each one is doing is amazing! But it’s not just about work, it’s also about the friendship and how we get along so well.

1/6 scale collection to create dioramas. Dioramas are scenes made up by putting together elements that tell a story. Usually, and hopefully, the viewer can interpret what’s going on. I have four small dogs and I like to spoil them. And yes, I dress them up in dog clothes during the winter. I work on my flower garden in the summer. And I design all year round trying to get them exhibited and/or enter them in fashion design competitions.
I like to travel to visit my dad in the Philippines and try to meet my relatives to find out about my family background. Interestingly enough, many of my current and past relatives were educators and doctors.
