I want to thank my lecturers for preparing us for the real world. I have learned so much about the fashion industry and sustainability which I could put into practice. My 3-year journey at Raffles has been a very valuable learning experience. It challenged my creativity and gave me freedom to use my own ideas. Having the opportunity to create our own business plans was truly exciting.
