ShadesOfSaki | Style File


Meet Saki Clarke: 

She’s a Sophomore, Biology (Pre-Med) major, African-American Studies minor attending Howard University!

How would you describe your personal style?

I take simple pieces and depending on the type of look I’m going for, I either wear sneakers or booties. I don’t like to overdo it. I think cool pieces and simple pieces go great together.

Do you have any celebrity style influences? If so, who?

If I could afford the style I like, it would be Rihanna and Beyonce. I don’t dress like them yet, but once I am able to afford it, I would adopt their style. As of now, my style is influenced by my aunt which is just funky chic.

What are your career aspirations?

Essentially, I want to be a pediatrician. Eventually, I want to start my own practice and become an entrepreneur. I want to start a non-profit to expose underserved youth to science and medicine at an early age.

How did you come up with the name ShadesOfSaki?

I was obsessed with Lana Del Rey’s song Shades of Cool in High School so this name just stuck.

What makes you a BOSS?

I know exactly what I want and exactly what I must do to get it. PERIOD.
