This is possibly the best “student’s helping out other students” story that has come out of the PACTfashion program yet:
Aziz and Andrea are both PACT students. Aziz was excited to enter the Toronto District School Board Sewing Skills competition, but was disappointed to learn that there weren’t enough interested students at his high school, Westview. Andrea happened to know the woman who was organizing the competition, and wrote her a letter at the 11th hour, asking if Aziz could still enter the competition. She said yes, and so Aziz and Andrea both entered the city wide competition. After an entire day of interviews, cutting and sewing – Aziz and Andrea tied for the Gold Medal in the competition and are going on to compete in the regional competition next month!
I am SO proud of both of my awesome students for their hard work, commitment and mad skillz! Congratulations, Aziz and Andrea!!!
