The most important skill that Fashion Communication taught me is to be confident about myself and my work.

I didn’t complete any internships while studying, however my work experience as a sales assistant at End Clothing helped my brand knowledge and fashion skills.

What is the one piece of advice you would give this year’s graduates?

Intern, intern, intern, no matter what you want to do, or where you want to work. Just because you are getting a degree it doesn’t mean you are ready for the industry. There is always something to learn.
