  • Samantha Frederick Fashion Designer Editor
    • My results –
    • ASR
    • A stands for Artistic, S stands for Social and R stands for Realistic. My top two career options both fall under this result.
    • I am Artistic because I am creative. I like to design and create my own ideas and that’s why a fashion designer would be a good match with my traits.
    • I am Social because I am very trained with words. I also like to work with a group effort as opposed to by myself. I am good at interacting with all different kinds of people.
    • I am Realistic because I have an ability that helps me to work with machines and tools. Although I am not athletic, I excel in the realistic field in other ways. Jobs that have to do with fashion and working as an editor require realistic skills and that’s why I think I suit the part.
    • People in the fashion field should have a good eye for color, style and shape. They look at materials, attend fashion shows, and work with other designers on projects.

    • This semester I shadowed my Aunt in New York City. My aunt is a shoe designer and manager of a company called Butter Shoes. The day I went in with her was she was hosting a sample sale. I helped to organize the shoes and persuade the customers to buy her products. The company is fairly new and it is increasingly progressing. I also helped her pick out designs for next springs season! We picked the styles and fabrics that she sends to the shoe factory in Italy. I had a great experience and I hope to be a part of the Butter Shoes staff in the future.
