"It is my fondest wish that the scholarship fund at the University of Nebraska can help pave the way for exciting careers for young people who are, today, just like I was as a child ... dreaming of beautiful clothes, and making them, drawing them, selling them ... loving the creative life, and feeling that powerful urge to get involved. Young people who are just like I was ... Drawn to Fashion."
