What inspired you to enter the contest?

Ms. Dunlap told me to. She’s the art teacher.

What made you think of the designs for the shoes?

I don’t really know, I just got the paper and started doodling on it.

What is the prize if you win?


What are you going to do with the prize money if you win?

I have no idea. My mom will probably take it.

Are you planning on pursuing a career in fashion or shoes?


Are you going to do more art like this in the future?

Maybe. I do a lot of space stuff so probably.

Are vans your preferred shoe?

I actually like Converse.
