Meet our new intern, Sarah!
My name is Sarah McLeod and I am a senior at the University of Kentucky. I was born and raised in Kentucky in a small town named Ashland, Kentucky. I moved to Lexington for school four years ago and have been here ever since. It’s been a major change from my small town, but I prefer cities over small towns anyways. Once I graduate, I plan to move to an even bigger city such as New York, Houston, Chicago, or Atlanta to pursue fashion. I am a double major at UK in Merchandising Apparel & Textiles as well as Integrated Strategic Communications. Since that is a mouthful, I like to just say I major in fashion and branding.
When I’m not working at PacSun, or babysitting my nephew, I enjoy sewing and reworking clothing into unique pieces. I picked up sewing my sophomore year of college and haven’t looked back since. I’ve always had a different style than many with living in Kentucky, so I decided to make clothing to fit my taste and be one of a kind. I plan to create my own small brand out of the pieces I produce and hope to take that to new levels once I graduate. I also have a year-old German Shepherd who consumes the majority of my life as well. She’s like having a large child that doesn’t talk back. So, I’m pretty occupied every day, but I love to stay busy.
