     Julissa's story is beyond inspiring, please see an excerpt below:

"Since I was a little girl I always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, at a very early age I developed an interest for clothing and drawing. I will persuade my mother to dress me up like the dolls I will play with, as you can see from the picture, my mother tried to match the outfit completely including the red lipstick for my 2 year old birthday party. 
My favorite pastime growing up were of course drawing and painting; I started my school years a year early because my older sister insisted for me to accompany her at school.  My grandmother was a seamstress and my mother recalls seeing me as a child spending a lot of time looking at abuela sewing.  I was always complimented for my art drawings, my art was always selected for art shows which made me feel very good. Taking art  courses at Museo de Casas Reales in Santo Domingo was a great opportunity for me, even though I was very young, I enjoyed taking the classes and was always impressed with our professor, painter Elsa
