I often find myself inspired by people around me. Today was no different as I was able to meet Tonian (Toni) Hohberg for the first time. If you don’t have any knowledge on this woman, allow me to explain. The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), was founded by Toni when she was only 26 years old. She realized that Los Angeles was on the cutting edge of fashion but lacked a college that could teach fashion industry standards and techniques for the upcoming jobs that were available. FIDM is now one of the most competitive specialized colleges in the country thanks to the guidance of Toni who has served as a very hands-on President since its inception.
Thanks to Ms. Toni I was inspired to dream bigger than before. I’m sure there were many obstacles that she had to face with starting a college, but clearly her faith outweighed her fear.
I will reach higher and operate at higher level of faith! Thank you Toni!
