When I upcycle clothes for disadvantaged teens, my primary goal is for them to feel confident with who they are through what they wear. The best thing is knowing I can take something that no one wanted and transform it into something that make them feel beautiful once they put it on. I think a lot of my friends are generous people who are involved in community service, but when you are a teenager trying to get through school and working on homework until 9 or 10 at night, it's hard to commit to a cause. But a lot of people my age have good intentions, they just aren't as determined as me.

Everything I know about sewing and design, I learned from the Internet. You really can find everything you need online.

I practiced on clothes my mom was going to donate to Goodwill and I was able to turn them into something trendy that teens would actually want to wear. Often, when people donate the clothes don't fit well and there's no style and honestly, they look horrible. I haven't been able to meet personally with the teens, but (the local agencies) send me clothes to recycle and then they deliver the clothes.
