This week, 6th grade REACH students in Mrs. Elvira
Deyamport’s class started their Virtual Career Skype Tour with the very own
HGTV star, Kristan Cunningham. Kristan is the former host of Design on a Dime
and is now working on a new show that will air on the OWN Network.
The call started with a brief introduction, where Kristan outlined her educational background and work experiences. The remainder of the call was dedicated to student-led interviews, which covered a variety of questions from what skills and preparation are necessary for a career in interior design to what are the challenges and perks of your job. Kristan offered insight into the world of interior design and gave an honest perspective on working in the field of television. Finally, she offered some great advice for students who are interested in pursuing a career in interior design.
