Yenifer Ubiera: Style Warrior

Passion+ the right instructors to push you along. That’s been the winning formula for Yenifer Ubiera, who found her calling via her Fashion Styling degree from the Academy’s online education platform. Though based in New York City, far from the Academy’s campus in San Francisco, Yenifer excelled in her studies and is now a ‘style warrior’ in one of the most style-focused cities in the world.

Why the Academy? Ms. Ubiera started researching programs that were close to home in New York, but was dismayed to discover that most didn’t have a styling program. What she found in the Academy’s School of Fashion was one of the country’s only accredited BFA Fashion Styling programs. It’s also one she could complete entirely online without disrupting her life in New York.
