Calexico High School Fashion Club President, 2016-2017
Without the help of our FIDM Fashion Club Advisor, Viviana Moreno, we would not have been able to have this great experience being part of FIDM Fashion Club.
This was the first year in Calexico High School that Fashion Club had so many members. By the end of the year, we had nearly 50 members!
Throughout the year, we participated in several activities. In one of our activities, we basically created an outfit with toilet paper! It was very fun, and it also demonstrated to our members how to create something with so little.
A big part of our club was fundraising. Our first fundraiser was during our Calexico High School Carnival. It was so cool to see members who did not know each other become so united after that event. The other huge fundraiser we did was during two Saturdays in May. I loved it, even though it was hot, we were tired, and not a lot of people showed up, we all worked hard to get the job done.
Since we were not able to go to the DEBUT Runway Show in Santa Monica this year, we organized a Fashion Club field trip to FIDM San Diego to see the campus and learn more about the college. We even visited Belmont Park where we had a lot of fun.
Lastly, I just want to say I feel very proud of all of you Fashion Club members, and all the hard work you put into this club. Seniors, I wish you the best in this new chapter in your life.
Karla Arce, Cyndy Perez, and Alondra Coronado, my outstanding seniors, thank you for always being there when the club needed you guys. Even though most of the time I did not know what to do and was always stressed, you guys were still there! I promise I will do my best for new members next year.
