    On paper she looks fierce. I'm wondering if she can back it up, and actually put garments together by herself.

    She clearly got more out of her education and background that she is letting on. She must have studied pattern making.

    Don't know what to make of her . . . . she's either the world's fastest quick-study or she wasn't completely honest about when she started sewing. Time will tell.

    Re: Anya Ayoung-Chee - Season 9

    Does anyone know what sort of courses she would have had to take in order to get a communications design degree from Parson's? Also, didn't she say she'd only been sewing for four months? Was she in the Miss Universe contest just four months prior to the season starting? I have no idea when that pageant is held or when this season actually started taping.

    I also find it pretty hard to believe that the first thing anyone would sew would be something he/she would wear to a competition that big. I mean, I assume the Miss Universe pageant was important to her, so wouldn't you think she'd have worried about how she looked? Wouldn't you think someone in charge of the Miss T/T pageant would have been concerned about her doing something like that?

    Was doing a little curiosity research on Ms. Ayoung-Chee. Apparently, she likes to do things in front of the camera with her boyfriend and another girl (also in the Miss Universe pageant). I'm sorry, but will people NEVER learn that these sorts of things can rarely be kept under covers? (Pardon the pun.)

    She is the most compelling designer this year. She is smart, kind and upbeat. Very nifty person.
