122 is an upcoming streetwear and fashion company designed to not only make you look good but feel good about what you are wearing. 122 is a symbol of luck and love within my life. I see this number in all different forms and places right when I need a reminder that everything is going to be okay. We want to provide streetwear with a fit that is flattering yet comfortable, but also sustainable. Maintaining an eco-friendly production and product is very important in this process. Currently, I am testing different hoodies and experimenting with the fit and design patterns. Additionally, I am working on creating a sweatpant design and hope to expand the array of options to hoodies, sweatpants, and hats by the end of this year.
DORM provides affordable, quality wooden dorm furniture to Wesleyan students. Whether in a single room or a wood frame house, DORM will provide shoe racks, shelving, stools, and tables to the Wesleyan student body. In doing so, fewer students will purchase cheap plastic furniture that gets thrown away at the end of the year.

We are looking to reinvent how people eat on campus by creating a one-of-a-kind app that tracks the line at on-campus venues. We will be installing cameras on campus, and they will be connected to a live stream where students will be able to scan a QR code and get immediate access to see the line at every on-campus food venue, as well as laundry sites on campus.
