Fashion Scholarship Fund
• Case Study Scholar Applicant
The Fashion Scholarship Fund allows fashion-oriented students to apply both their creativity and experience in solving a variety of different case studies. In 2021, I participated in a summer-long course to prepare my application to the Fashion Scholarship Fund. Through this course, I was able to develop, edit, and finalize my merchandising-based project.
Undergraduate Teaching Aide
• Retail Planning & Buying TA
In 2021, the Textiles, Merchandising, and Interiors department of UGA decided they should include an Undergraduate Teaching Aide position in the Retail Planning & Buying course. Due to having taken it and not only doing well but thoroughly enjoying the material, the professor, Dr. Lyu, reached out to me to ask if I would be willing to be her aide. As a Teaching Aide, I work with students to understand concepts and materials discussed in class throughout their weekly lectures.

In this position, I worked to grow the NRF on UGA’s campus as well as spread information about the opportunities offered by this organization. I served for the full calendar year of 2021, and I acted as a liaison between the NRF and UGA students.
