“I chose St. Kate’s because at the time, they had the only fashion program centered around sustainability. Through the Community Leaders program, I interned for the St. Paul Public Library, teaching people to sew. I loved that I could really connect with the community. Here, professors take the time to help their students. If I needed anything or was struggling to find a job opening, the professors helped.”
