When asked what's next for him, Matt says he doesn't know for sure yet. He does say that despite a devout connection to his faith, he wants leave the Mennonite community he grew up in so he can pursue a career in fashion design. Until now, that's all been a dream and Matt hasn't yet made a final decision on whether to try and make that dream a reality.

Stay tuned.
