Hello fellow bloggers, my name is Allyson Ancona. I am currently a senior at URI and I am studying Fashion Merchandising and design. When I am not sprinting across campus I am either desperately trying to catch up on my sleep or running around at work. For the past few months I have been a Visual Merchandiser at Target, and it has been the biggest and best challenge that I have experienced so far. I feel very lucky to have been given the chance to work full time and practice my skills while still in school, and I work with an amazing team to help keep me on track with everything in my life. When I hope to get out of this class is to be able to think about things (not just fashion) in a broader sense, to look at things almost three dimensionally. To say that I can understand this multifaceted world from not only my perspective, but from the perspective of my classmates, and future co workers.
