What’s important is that nobody rushes you nowhere, makes you complete anything within tight deadlines. You can study materials and complete assignments when it is convenient and you have a mood for it.

I would like to say that even if my profession is not connected to the fashion world, this is just a hobby, but education in the Italian E-Learning Fashion School made me think about changing the scope. I plan to go further in this direction.
