Education

Bachelor in Design (Fashion) with First Class Honors, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia
2010 – 2013
Being in a research and industry focused university, I am constantly being challenged to analyze, investigate, experiment, innovate, and conceptualize. Through these vigorous processes, it has enabled me to be dynamic and driven. The simulative environment has not only enhanced my spirit of curiosity and problem solving abilities, but it has also heightened my communication skills in order to express my views and ideas efficiently
