Economics Students Visit Allison Izu - Ten Tomorrow

On Thursday Nov. 1 the Sacred Hearts Academy Economics class visited Allison Izu Song, '94, boutique "Ten Tomorrow" off of 11th Avenue. Allison Izu is a local designer and a distinguished alumna of the Academy. 
Although she herself could not be there for the visit, the girls were appreciative of the personalized tour of the shop and work space by her business partner, owner and designer of the brand Ten Tomorrow, Summer Shiigi. Ms. Shiigi also met with each project group to listen to listen to their business ideas and offered valuable advice, helping them to work out estimates for expenses and potential profit.
Mahalo to Allison Izu and Summer Shiigi for allowing our students this valuable experience!
