It is a fact proven that North Carolina Central University students fly high in numerous aspects of life. They also are fly with style. Meet Jessica Watson, who is a NCCU student, where she studies Psychology and hails from Winston-Salem.
She describes her style as preeminent.
Whatever you wear, just make sure you wear it with confidence.
“What I like most about Jessica’s fashion is that “IT” is her own. She doesn’t try to copy what’s already out there, she creates ‘IT’,” Watson’s mother Lisa Lawson said. Her father, Phillip Watson, added that she “comes strong and hard.”
Watson says that she likes to switch it up to sweat pants, a baseball cap, and smart sneakers on a relaxed day (add: a grill) followed by a day for a warm fur coat and 5-inch heels. That’s a week of drastic changes for sure.
“We never know what ‘Jessica’ we’re going to see her in the next day. She always keeps us guessing,” her college friend Myles Alston said.
Watson said that her favorite quote is “You can never be overdressed” adding that it reminds her to explore different styles.
Watson is a member of the Student Government Association, Eagle Ambassador to potential students, Eagle Expert for student mentoring, a member of the University Honors Program in which she serves as Miss University Honors Program 2016-2017, and a recipient of the Eagle Scholarship which serves as a full academic scholarship is all under her belt only being a sophomore.
Working with the company Aldo Shoe Store when she has time grants her the opportunity to help those who need advice on shoes. It also expands her fashion sense while exposing her to a lot of different styles and cultures.
Some think that Watson spends a fortune on clothing, but that’s not the case. “She mixes pieces from various prices ranges and makes them look high end,” her aunt Angela Hubbard said.
“Whatever you wear, just make sure you wear it with confidence,” Watson said.
“When I shop with her, she may show me an item and I’m thinking “What in the world will she do with that?”, then when we get home and she does her fashion show for me it ends up just working for her. It’s truly amazing,” Lawson said.
