Our “GoEnnounce Yourself” Scholarship, sponsored by Upromise, awards one student $500 each month! This award goes to a student who’s doing a great job showcasing who he/she is, by sharing school related e-nnouncement updates with Followers on their GoEnnounce Student Page. We are happy to e-nnounce our March winner…Amy Martinez!
Amy Martinez is a freshman at the Art Institute of Austin. Outside of school, Amy loves the outdoors. She’s a 4-H member, very passionate about the beauty of her home state, Texas, and appreciates hiking, canoeing, & camping. Academically, Amy has always loved art. She holds a high regard for all of the arts and desires to learn more about painting and sculpture. However, we have been super inspired by her intense focus to use her drawing & design skills to achieve her dream of becoming a fashion designer, one day working in a famous fashion house.
Since her arrival in Austin, Amy has been avidly using her Student Page to show her progress in the fashion design program at the Art Institute. She even ended her first semester with a GPA of 3.25! One of things that really impressed us this month was her devotion to a recent school project – to create her own business. She and another student decided to start a clothing brand, Magnate, targeting powerful and successful women. Amy shared how the business evolved from a business and mood board to a fully designed 6 piece collection. Even though this on it’s own seems a like a lot of work, Amy still found time this month to: design and make a pattern for her DREAM dress and a pencil skirt, complete a project for her textiles class that highlighted environmental and biological hazards in the textile industry, get a job (at the school library!), and assist a boutique with their spring 2015 collection’s fashion show. Oh and one more thing – she also completed & submitted her Austin Fashion Week Table Design Competition application. Wow, what an inspirational young designer! To learn more about Amy and see some of her awesome designs, check out her Student Page here.
P.S. Amy – if you go forward with your designs for Magnate a few of the GO team members might want to place an order:)
