Rashaad Holley  BUFFALO, NY
Hello everyone. My name is Rashaad Holley and I am an Apparel Design student in the Fashion and Textile Technology department at Buffalo State College. I am currently embarking on an unforeseen journey, and taking a leap of faith to pursue my career in the fashion industry. My biggest test of faith came last month when I decided to leave my job to submit a collection to jury, and potentially be selected to participate in the 10th annual Runway fashion show put on by my college's department. My collection was not only selected to be in the show as a student collection, but I won awards for "Best Student Collection" and "Best in Show." Having only a year and a half of designing experience, and it being only my second semester as a design student, one of my amazing professors referred to my achievements as "monumental."

My faith is what makes me dedicated to my work, and I am now coming to you for help. I have an opportunity to study at Regent's University in London, England for the summer of 2017. As you can imagine, this is an amazing opportunity for me to grow as a designer and as a man. I thank you for the time you have given me to hear about my opportunity, and I would be forever grateful if you could contribute to my growth in any way.

Thank you!
Rashaad
