Thank you, God, for seeing me through this program. I want to thank my family and friends who have been there for me throughout this journey, especially my husband, children, mother, brother, cousins, and sister-in-law. Huge thanks to S.R.O. and Pastor Mrs. Wole Adewoye of Mountain of Fire & Miracle Ministries for their prayers and guidance. I want to thank my models Gabriella Kalema and Lydia Akot-Kuel, for showcasing my designs so beautifully; my professors Vicki, Mark, Kim, and Renalie; and my fellow students for their support and kindness. God bless you all in Jesus’ name Amen.
