Over in BC, Linda Clement's two daughters have been unschooled all their lives and following a self-directed learning style has lead the girls into institutions of higher learning that are in keeping with their interests.
She completed her 1 year fashion design program at Pacific Design Academy, a local, long-standing arts college which teaches graphic design, fashion design, interior design and architectural technology. She is now working in a variety of jobs --at a pub-style restaurant, at a clothing store, as a liquor rep and selling Partylite. She's been offered a job working with a local designer and manufacturer, making costumes for dance and skating, but so far hasn't taken her up on it because it's a nasty long commute. She also does a bit of commission work as a seamstress and some styling/personal shopper stuff.
