How did the Wilson College of Textiles prepare you for your career?
Staying in the textiles and apparel industry, the NCSU Wilson College of Textiles prepared me more than I could have ever imagined. Learning textiles fundamentals, supply chain marketing, and working on many group projects helped to shape the success of my career. The opportunities and growth available to students allows us to succeed quickly in our careers.
What does it mean to be a member of the Dean’s Young Alumni Leadership Council?
In the short time the council has been established, it has been able to recruit a diverse membership within the industry and begin to improve the college for the better. I am very honored and excited to give back to my school and connect with fellow young alumni through this distinguished program.
What do you see in the future for the Wilson College of Textiles?
I see the Wilson College of Textiles continuing their reputation of being the best textiles school in the nation and world. I see the campus and curriculum expanding as we continue to digitize within our industry. I see sustainability also as a key initiative for the college moving forward.
