Q. How would you describe your experience so far?
“I like it so much. It’s really fun and we are always are doing some activities or trips and stuff I love. And also the classes are sooo nice. My favorite ones are cooking and runway fashion. I did them last week and then this week I just took the same thing because it’s so nice.”
Q. What’s your favorite thing you made in fashion?
“I made a lot of things. A skirt, a romper, earrings, a hair tie/ scrunchie, a belt. I did all of this in one day. I made the skirt for three days but the other things are really fast. I had never used a sewing machine before and it was a little scary the first few days. But now it’s so so so cool because it’s just done so fast.”
Q. What is something that you’d say to someone considering coming to JKCP next summer?
