I Found My Niche at Savannah College of Art and Design – Atlanta

Student Name: Ma Lee

School: Savannah College of Art and Design – Atlanta

Major: Fashion Design

“Hello, I’m Ma Lee! I’m a senior at SCAD (Atlanta Campus). The reason why I choose my major was because it has been a childhood dream of mine to become a fashion designer. As soon as I could use my hands, I remember my earliest memories were of sketching garments, cutting up my own clothes and gluing them together to create clothes for my barbies. I didn’t realize until I got a little older that that was an actual career – to design clothes.

Here I am so many years later at SCAD. It wasn’t easy getting to where I am now. Both of my parents were refugee immigrants and I was the first born of ten kids. It was hard leaving my family behind to follow my dreams but they have been supportive of me since day one. It turns out I was the only one that doubted myself. Thankfully, I am blessed with people who believe in me no matter what. The future holds a lot in store and I’m excited to embark on this new journey as I finish school.”—@m.iong
