STUDENT SPEAK • CATHERINE D. • TEAM SOPRO

“This week we got our prototypes. Actually having the basic form of the bag helped our group a lot. Now, after a few adjustments, we have fallen deeply in love with our bag! I might actually buy it! I’m really looking forward to Tuesdays now because of In True Fashion, it’s just so much fun being with my group! TEAM SOPRO GO!”

“This week in In True Fashion, I had a pleasant surprise. I was jokingly making a deal that I would write 5 student speaks for Dipping Dots, and I couldn’t believe that Nancy actually went and got me ice cream! It was so surprising. I guess business is everywhere, you just have to make the right proposal. Also, we worked on our fundraising. It was fun and productive. We made a lot of bracelets and we already sold 2 before we even started selling! I feel confident our team will win.”

“In True Fashion has been crazy fun! We just went to the Step Up event, supporting Step Up, promoting JAMAH and and getting people to vote for the In True Fashion bags. It was such an exhilarating experience. We talked to so many people and we even got great advice on how to start our own business. I’m so excited for Tuesday’s class!”

“This week, we worked on reaching out to people about the program. We discussed about the program’s strong points and how it affects us. We also had to nervously speak to the camera, calling out people like Ryan Seacrest and Ellen to support our program. Oh! I almost forgot! There was a twist this week. We were put into different groups. It felt weird because I felt like the awesome dynamics of our group SoPro disappeared, so I’m hoping this is a one time thing. It was still a pretty interesting experience though. I was really looking forward to seeing the final product this week. I hope we get to see it soon. Our last class is next week!”

“When I first heard about In True Fashion I couldn’t believe it. It was too good of an opportunity! I’ve been dreaming of designing my own bag and now I get to do it. I just hope I’ll be able to contribute to my team and not disappoint anyone. Eeek! I can’t wait to get started!”
