What Online Classes Are Like for This Fashion Student

She had to learn to be more resourceful to get by.

While things like poor internet connection and lack of resources are a collective struggle for college students currently taking classes online, there are certain problems that are very specific to a college course. For fashion design students like Alyssa Tongson, one of the biggest hurdles of being in quarantine is the lack of access to fabrics and other materials they need for fashion design classes.

Alyssa, a student at De La Salle - College of St. Benilde, had to learn to be more resourceful to get by. She once made a piece out of old bedsheets because she didn't have enough fabric at home and she couldn't really just head out to purchase them because of quarantine restrictions. While in quarantine, she also decided to share her experience as a fashion student on her YouTube channel.
