Shauntelle Elexus is the Creative Director and initial “dreamer” of the Paradigm III concept. Her creativity and passion for her project did not waiver throughout 2 years of challenges, and obstacles that would have deterred and definitely derailed most “dreamers”. “I simply could not afford Fashion Design School but I was honored to attend the school of my dreams for a “brief moment”. Not only could I not afford tuition, but to make matters worse, I was technically “homeless”. Most nights my family could scrape up enough money to afford a hotel room from Hotwire, but when we couldn’t, 24 hr Fitness parking lots would have to do.
