Hands in the air, it’s Founder’s Day! An annual tradition, Founder’s Day is a day for students to let loose and have a little fun. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best, but it didn’t stop us from looking hot and feeling festive. Actually, the drizzle almost fit the theme perfectly: Under the Sea.

Priscilla is a junior and Neuroscience major obsessed with brains, so be nice to her 😉 Originally born and raised in Ghana, she embodies a rich and colorful culture which radiates in her fashion sense. She doesn’t have a particular fashion inspiration but Solange Knowles may come close to it since she wears lots of prints, particularly African print. Other than that, Priscilla wears what appeals to her, is decent, comfortable, and most likely ‘printed.’
