Rea is an ambitious designer, sustainability activist, and travel enthusiast. Born and raised in West Michigan, Rea quickly found her way to NYC to pursue her love of art, design, and fashion. Her worldview expanded when she studied abroad in Florence, Italy, giving her the opportunity to tour Chernobyl and hike up Mount Vesuvius. As a Libra, Rea is torn between her love for the city and the great outdoors. When she’s not designing or traveling, Rea enjoys cosplaying, live music, indie films, coffee, and her tuxedo cat, Khaleesi.
