Carla CASANO

Carla CASANO graduated from CEFAM and PACE University, New York City, a few weeks ago. She is now an Alumni and we wish you her all the best in her life, both professional and personal. She wrote CEFAM a thank you note that she shared on her social networks and allowed us to share it with you:

“Dear CEFAM, you gave me a second chance after high school as I was profoundly disgusted by the French education system and ready to drop school. You gave me the opportunity to become a fluent English speaker and a good student. For the first time, thanks to interesting classes and amazing professors I found myself passionate, excited to learn and good at it! Most importantly, you gave me the blessed chance to realize my travelling goals and fashion dreams through life-changing internships. I’ve worked for Chanel in London and Geneva and Hermès in Paris. Finally, you gave me wings to fly to New York City where I am living now. A few years ago, I would have NEVER believed that such a chance could happen to me as I was just a small-town girl “dreaming too big for the tiny city I was living in” (that’s what many of my high-school teachers told me!). But CEFAM valued my dreams and helped me achieve each one of them. CEFAM also helped me grow up as a student, a professional and a woman. I wasn’t easy everyday; some people and some classes gave me hard times, but at the end of the day, I’ll keep these challenges as life lessons. I’m officially an alumni and I’ll never forget how this school changed my life and brought amazing people and lifetime friends to it. Thank you CEFAM.”
