How did the Wilson College of Textiles prepare you for your career?
NC State provided a wealth of knowledge in the textile field. It allowed me to communicate articulately with the overseas factory on a regular basis. I also made meaningful relationships and connections while at the Wilson College of Textiles which has proven to be valuable.
What does it mean to be a member of the Dean’s Young Alumni Leadership Council?
It is such an honor to serve on the Dean’s Young Alumni Leadership Council. I am passionate about creating and maintaining an alumni network that will support the Wilson College of Textiles for many years to come. It’s extremely important to continue to foster meaningful relationships with our former classmates and I’m excited that we will be able to do that in a fun way. I am also looking forward to meeting alumni from other classes and sharing our Textiles memories.
