High school student and aspiring fashion designer Nikki Kaia Lee discusses generosity and its affect on future generations. Nikki relates how fashion magazine “W” editor-in-chief Bridget Foley and fashion designer Oscar de le Renta helped her realize the hidden value of personal diversity while demonstrating the importance of generosity in changing lives.

Born in Switzerland to two architect parents, Nikki discovered her passion early in life, and has already been working toward becoming a fashion designer for more than a decade. She has interned at Oscar de la Renta, shown her designs in South Magazine, and presented her work in local fashion shows. Nikki plans to earn fashion and jewelry design degrees at SCAD.
