HCSC: Do you have a fashion company?

MP: I do not have my own company, but through one of my courses at USC, small business, and the graduation with leadership distinction program. I have created a business model that I plan on implementing one day. It involves generating relations with women in developing countries and creating a unique product with the skills and handiwork they use on a daily basis. I will be able to teach them how to turn a profit on these items and materials. This will give women the opportunity to provide for their families and be a part of impacting change.

HCSC: What are your plans for designing in the future?

MP: I plan on attending Central Saint Martins in London to continue my education in fashion design. I intend on staying in Europe to work onside with designers and eventually, become a designer and make my own work.

“I am in love with traveling to new places/countries and learning about other cultures, it is where I gather a lot of my design inspiration. I try to lead an adventurous life and “do the thing you’re supposed to do in the place you’re supposed to do it” – a motto by Kristin Newman, author of What I Was Doing While you Were Breeding, a Memoir. (highly recommend).”
