FFaustina Sari Setiawan may seem like another club president, but behind the title is an aspiring fashion merchandiser born and raised in Southeast Asia. Finishing up a double major in business and art history, the Fashion and Lifestyle Society president is set for big things in the coming years.The young fashion fanatic was born in Bali, Indonesia and moved to Singapore at the age of 11. Following her designer mother around at work, Faustina always took an interest in fashion but never knew where it would lead her until she came to Western.
My family is from Indonesia and I just moved here four and a half years ago as an international student, she says. My mom basically did a lot of mass production. She didnt really have her own collection or anything, it was more like a factory and she designed for it.
Reminiscing about her mothers watercolour sketches, Faustina admits her mothers eye for fashion was a huge influence on her. Her mother became a designer in the garment industry as it spread throughout Indonesia and used her passion for art to make influential designs in the companies. While Faustina eventually left for Singapore to go to school, she still kept the same passion for fashion as her mentor.
After school in Singapore, Faustina followed her older cousins and came to Western as a marketing student. One art history class later turned her subconscious passion into a foreseeable career in the fashion world.
The Fashion and Lifestyle Society offered the budding fashion merchandiser an opportunity to gain practical experience to prepare herself for the industry. During her time with the club, Faustina has progressed from stylist to president as well as the co-editor-in-chief for the clubs publication, Volta Magazine.
I felt like the Fashion and Lifestyle Society was more garnered towards preparing yourself for the fashion industry and for some reason I was really drawn to it, says Faustina. I just took more interest to that club more than any of the others.
Her time at Volta has taken her to three seasons of Toronto Fashion Week as well as Toronto Mens Fashion Week. The magazine has also offered her an outlet to develop her skills as a fashion journalist.
Ive always had some kind of interest in journalism so combining my interest in journalism and interest in fashion felt perfect for me when I got into Volta, she says.
Beyond Western, Faustina will apply to renowned fashion schools like Parsons School of Design before returning to Singapore. She hopes to secure a job as a shopper for a retail store or become a fashion journalist at Vogue.
As Faustina wraps up her last semester at Western, she hopes to inspire other fashion lovers to join F&LS or Volta to hone their talent.
Life beyond school is filled with possibilities and she expects to take advantage of every one of them, wherever they happen to be in the world.

Driver to plead guiltyRITA RAHMATI NEWS EDITOR@RITAATGAZETTE
The driver involved in the car crash that caused the death of a Western student will plead guilty next month.
Jared DeJongs lawyer, Jim Dean, appeared in court last Tuesday to say his client will plead guilty for impaired driving causing death.
DeJong, who wasn't present in court Tues., struck 18-year-old Andrea Christidis, a first-year health sciences student, on Oct. 7. She succumbed to her injuries two days later.
The crown and I are still flesh-ing [the sentence] out between us. And whether or not we end up at a common ground well have to see, Dean said in an interview. It wont be a light sentence for certain.
DeJong, a 24-year-old London man, had over 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood at the time of the accident. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, the maximum sentence for having a blood alcohol level over legal limit causing death is imprisonment for life.
As Dean explained, pleading guilty is a mitigating factor in terms of sentencing. The crown and Dean are currently negotiating
a sentence. The crown attorney's office declined to comment on the case.
As with any case you review all of the disclosure, the evidence on the case, you sit down and look at the case and the merits of it, you lay your options and you decide which way youre going to proceed, Dean said. And obviously in this case the instructions I received after all of our discussions were to set a date to plead.
Neither DeJong nor Dean have had any contact with the victims family.
DeJong is currently out on bail. The next court date is scheduled for Feb. 17. n

The University is investigating after a document containing personal information of 201415 first-year main campus students was made publicly available online.
The downloadable Excel docu-ment contains the full names, Western email addresses, what residence they were in, home phone number, cell phone number and program or faculty of current second-year students. That infor-mation can be used, for example, to find a students home address with a simple Google search. Other per-sonal information, such as student numbers, personal emails and resi-dential addresses, was not included in the file.
The document was uploaded to Course Hero, a U.S. based course note-sharing website, where any-one with an account can down-load the fil
