Levi completed fashion and media courses with the prestigious Pratt Institute and also the world-famous New York University (NYU), while Julia completed three events courses with NYU while volunteering at Riverside Park in Manhattan with their events team.
Levi said: “The opportunity to study in New York has changed my life completely! It opened my eyes to new opportunities and furthered my knowledge of the fashion industry. I really enjoyed visiting designer studios, museums and exhibits as part of my course.
Levi added he hopes the opportunity will lead to lasting professional and personal relationships.
He said: “Studying intensive fashion design at the Pratt Institute and photo-journalism at NYU, I was afforded the opportunity to gain loads of new skills, meet new people, and form lasting bonds both professionally and personally”.
Julia said: “During my time in New York, I not only deepened my understanding of the events industry that I aspire to work in, but I also acquired the confidence needed to pursue my dream career. I really enjoyed volunteering at Riverside Park, from salsa nights on the pier to movie nights, the events I volunteered at and the unique New Yorker lifestyle all contributed to a profoundly enriching experience. This scholarship wasn’t just a trip; it has fundamentally transformed my life”.
The scholarship was awarded thanks to the annual George Lauder Bursary.
