Essence's Story

My passion is helping others.

My passion is helping others because I feel like kids this generation shouldn't go through what I had to when I was their age. When I was 5, I had to go through foster care. I hope that when I'm older, I get to help the kids out who are going through the same problems I did. Later on, lead them to finding a way to better their lives and hopefully find a new home that best fits them.

Attending Summer Fashion Lab will help me explore my passion by being able to explore different fashion options. Some people think that fashion is all about dressing up and trying new designs, but the reason why I want to be a part of this program is to not only do that, but to also find a way that I could support my passion. Maybe I could use fashion as a way to help little girls who don't have the opportunity to have nice, wonderful clothes like I do. I want to give them the chance of what it feels like to have something nice once in their lives.

A Note from Ms. Albanese, Essence's Counselor

Essence could offer so much to Wishbone and the LIM College Summer Fashion Lab. She is a remarkably dedicated scholar. Despite obstacles, Essence has persisted in pursuing her education and holding herself to high standards. She is a positive role model for her peers and gives sage advice to her friends; she would undoubtedly bring a sense of maturity and responsibility to the program. As a young lady interested in exploring the world of fashion, Essence will be given an opportunity that she wouldn't otherwise have offered to her. By participating in the LIM College Summer Fashion Lab, not only will Essence be exposed to a new industry, one that she is considering pursuing as a career, but she will also be offered an invaluable experience to study her art form of choice: fashion. Participating in the LIM College Summer Fashion Lab will provide Essence with a creative outlet and process for artistic self-expression - and area which Essence both craves and excels.
