Cranston East gave me my start in business and sewing. I opened 'Bruna Costumes' in Prov R.I. I took 3 years of sewing which inspired me to start a business that related to making my own clothes. I almost did that except, instead of clothes, I made costumes. I owe my start in business to Cranston East and their wonderful programs.
