BFA FASHION DESIGN
(SHE / HER / HERS)
My name is Ashleen Castillo and I'm 27 years old. I am a proud Latina, raised in the mountains of Puerto Rico. A month after Hurricane Maria lashed Puerto Rico, I left the island to conquer my dreams in the spirit of resistance and by doing what I’m passionate about. Through fashion, I seek to share my passion for creation and the knowledge we receive from it. It inspires me to know that creativity is my superpower and, through my art, I can make a statement and transform myself.
This is my kind of resistance and I was born to do this.
