Ruby describes herself as creative and outgoing. When Ruby was seven years old, she asked for a Hello Kitty sewing machine for Christmas and was initially taught by her aunt taught her how to sew. The first thing she learned to sew was a purse and from there, she became mostly self-taught and has been taking fashion design classes at RISD since she was twelve years old. She describes her style as modern ready to wear and places a lot of thought on her fabric choices. Additionally, Ruby is a professional singer, and has previously sung with the band Train. Her big goal is to be a well-known fashion designer and musician, and to have her own fashion line and dress celebrities.
