  Myoz, Advertising   "I am always inspired by the people in the street. I bought my hat because it reminded me of the McDonald's Monopoly man. I like wearing glasses because my eyes are small. I have eight pairs of glasses. I think I am too tall so I wear baggy pants to make me look shorter."

  Mo, Image Design   "Army green is my favorite color. That's why I bought my cape. I like wearing glasses without lenses because it makes me look cool and hides my dark eye circles. I want to be an image stylist in the future. Fashion is my heart. I think a person is always judged by their appearance."
