Michelle's Picture


I am currently a student at North Carolina State University pursuing a degree in Textile Engineering with a focus on Product Design. I intend on graduating in the year 2020. It's a clear vision, almost 20/20 ;).


I chose textile engineering because I have had a passion for textiles since I was a child. I wanted to be a fashion designer. When I was a sophomore, I evem designed and created a prom dress. Later, I discovered I was inept at art but much more skilled in the areas of math and science. After learning about the possibilities that textile engineering offered, I was eager to choose it as my major. I plan on someday working for a performance apparel company like REI or Patagonia because I enjoy outdoor activities and would love to construct the products that make them possible.
