DAVID GARCIA PATIÑO
2022-2023 Scholarship Drexel University
David Garcia Patiño is pursuing a BA in Fashion Design at Drexel University. He graduated in 2021 from New Orleans Science and Mathematics Center Charter School and spent one year in attendance at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. Born in Medellin, Colombia, he learned English upon his arrival in the U.S. He established a clothing brand, Prophecy, before he graduated high school and has plans to turn the brand into a household name.
“I want to establish something to this magnitude to also help other artists and minorities around the world achieve their full potential and be able to follow their dreams,” says Garcia Patiño.
He will learn the fashion business first-hand through Drexel’s co-op program in 2023. He has aspirations to study abroad in London. He has enjoyed the learning process after beginning at Drexel in 2021 and has excelled in his studies despite facing adversity brought on by a recent car accident. He has a painting practice in addition to fashion design, sometimes painting directly on clothing.
David Garcia Patiño is an active member of the YAYA artists' guild, which he joined in 2018.
