Congratulations, Andrea Nieto! The BFA Textile Design student (who you may remember was personally selected by the University’s 2013 Guests of Honor, Max and Lubov Azria of BCBGMAXAZRIA, for a design internship at the brand’s corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, CA) is racking up yet another honor. Announced this week, Andrea has been named a 2014 Geoffrey Beene National Scholar Finalist by the YMA Scholarship Fund. Honored with $10,000 to facilitate her upcoming fashion career plans, Andrea was selected as one of eight award recipients for the prestigious scholarship.
As if that wasn’t enough, Andrea continues to be on the President’s Honor List for her beyond stellar GPA, and embodies the Academy of Art University’s philosophy of “Be Artist, Be Athlete” as from 2009-2011, she was recognized as an All-American Scholar by the National Golf Coaches Association of America.
We offer our major congratulations to Andrea! A true all star at the School of Fashion!
