New York, NY – LIM College student Natalia Salinas from Cancun won an Accessories Council competition and a $2,000 USD scholarship for her concept and design of the Care Bracelet, stylish medical ID bracelets for patients with conditions such as epilepsy, cardiac conditions, and allergies.

LIM College partnered with the Accessories Council to introduce a new course that taught students about launching an accessory brand/product. It was also a scholarship competition. Throughout the semester, the class learned about the elements needed to start a successful accessory brand, including product development, marketing, public relations and social media. For their final project, the students created a full-scale product plan which they could submit for scholarship consideration.

A 2015 graduate of Centro Universitario Anglo Mexicano in Cancun, she is the daughter of Eduardo and Rocio Salinas.  As a student at LIM, Natalia has completed internships at Dolce & Gabbana and the Ven Agency.  She expects to pursue a career in buying.
