My icons from the past are pretty common, but they have to be Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn. They just remind me how amazing it is to be a woman and importance of self care. My favorite vintage item is pretty random, but it has to be those cute little circle fan with the metal blades. I just love all the pretty pastel colors they come in. It just screams vintage. [My favorite vintage music comes from] definitely the 80’s; so much good classic rock legends were coming out with excellent music during that time,” said Maya Alligood (‘18).

smell of dust collecting and the stories the items could/can tell. My icon from the past is Ingrid Bergman. My dream car, a 1956 Ford Thunderbird. My favorite decade is the 1960’s because of the movies and music,” said Sydney Dickherber (‘18).
