My name is Kasey and I am 21 years old. I have spent the last 3 years living in the fast pace city of Miami, a fashion city on the come up. I am Fashion Merchandising & Retail Marketing student at Johnson & Wales University North Miami Campus. This summer I will wrap up my education with a study abroad experience that will take place in Italy for 1 month.

Fashion has been the most dominant interest in my life since I was child; I have never had a doubt that I would not pursue a career within the industry. Fashion is a true passion of mine. I have had the opportunity to participate in a variety of events that allow me to further my understanding of the industry and I can not wait to experience the International aspect.

Aside from fashion I enjoy playing sports and being active; I played volleyball for 4 years and basketball for 8. I enjoy sketching however, it is not something I wish to pursue. I love to shop, sew, beach, socialize, and attend local events. I am also a dedicated member of DECA, a co-curricular organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for their respective careers. I currently serve as the President of the Florida association of collegiate DECA.

In the future I hope to pursue a career in fashion production, merchandising, or product development.
