I Found My Niche at Central Washington University

Student Name: Plamedie Masiala

School: Central Washington University

Major: Apparel, Textiles & Merchandising

“Hey everyone!

My name is Plamedie Masiala and I am currently a senior here at Central Washington University. I am pursuing my Bachelor of Science with a major in Apparel, Textiles & Merchandising.

I had first decided to go to Central because I’d received a scholarship for track and field but ended up falling in love with fashion marketing and decided to make my major my main focus instead.

Central has a great fashion program and has taught me skills such as using Adobe Creative Suites in which I make moodboards, technical packages and more. This program has also taught me how to run my own business @shoplaviechic (please follow!) and the depth of the fashion world and retail industry.

I met the most selfless people at this school and they are the reason I am half the person I am today.

Going to college during a pandemic has been very challenging for me because my major is a very hands-on major. Having to do projects online has been difficult and not as enjoyable than if they were in person. Going through a pandemic while going to school has shown me how strong I actually am and that I can really overcome anything.”—@choco_queenn
