EUGENE, Ore. — A Eugene native is making her television debut as one of the contestants on the 13th season of “Project Runway”.
Korina Emmerich now lives in New York City, but she grew up in Eugene. She actually auditioned a few years back and while she didn’t make the final cut, she continued to pursue her dreams and encourages others to do the same.
She says, “If you have a dream or you have a passion about something, it is possible to pursue it and to be successful and success isn’t necessarily tons of money or all these things, but it’s just doing what you want everyday and being happy doing that.”
The show started at the end of July and Emmerich is still in the running to be this season’s winner.
