Teen Makes Grad Dress out of Math Homework to Raise Money for Malala Fund



In a bid to raise money and awareness for global education, 18-year-old Erinne Paisley designed a fashionable (and mathematical) dress for her graduation.

Erinne’s dress was made out of old calculus homework, black satin, and velvet, with the message “I’ve received my education. Not every woman has that right.” written on it in red ink. Erinne also donated the money she would have otherwise spent on the dress to the Malala Fund, and raised additional money by auctioning off the dress after her ceremony.



According to Fashionably Geek, Erinne will be studying International Relations at the University of Toronto in the fall and hopes to eventually work at the UN.
