Welcome to PoOFA!

Power of One For All is an Education Non-Profit Organization I founded in 2017 to benefit the students of The High School of Fashion Industries in Chelsea, New York City.

I was once a student there — now a proud alum, class of 1992 and fashion design teacher — since 2010. 

As a daughter of Dominican and Ecuadorian immigrants raised in Harlem by my grandmother, I grew up hearing the words, “There’s no money for that.”  

“There’s no money for that” is what I aim to change by founding Power of One for All. 

The High School of Fashion Industries is a Title 1 NYC public high school.
The basic principle of Title 1 is classified as a school with a large concentration of low-income students who receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting their educational goals.

Our Education Non-Profit has curated a scholastic year award program which consists of Seven Academic Merit Based Scholarships, and one financial aid scholarship to attend a Pre-College Summer Study Abroad Program at the Florence University of the Arts.

95% of all donations directly fund our scholarships!
Please help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 for the scholastic year 2021-2022.

I am very proud to have been an honoree at Schneps Media’s Power Women of Manhattan gala award ceremony, held in New York City on March 24, 2022 — in recognition for my founding of this educational non-profit organization.

“Be the Adult you needed when you were young.”
