Last Day of Classes!

Hi Everyone!
Well another great semester at FIT has come to an end and I feel like just yesterday I was sitting down writing my first blog post. It’s crazy to think I’ve completed my second Precollege class. I really enjoyed the class I took this summer. I feel like I got an inside look at what the beauty industry is really all about. All 3 of my professors were so knowledgeable and taught me so many great things.

As the summer begins coming to a close there are definitely both feelings of excitement and nerves about entering into my senior year of high school. This is the year I will begin applying to colleges and FIT is definitely at the top of my list.

The cosmetics and fragrance Precollege course really reminded me how much I love the beauty industry. From making products to learning about marketing I loved every minute of it and I hope to pursue a career in this field in the future.

My friends Marissa, Olivia and I!

I’m glad that I was able to have an opportunity to attend classes at FIT before applying. Taking these courses really showed me that having a career in the fashion industry is definitely something I want to do. Its been so much fun blogging this semester. I hope everyone enjoyed their classes and has an amazing summer.

Best of luck to everyone!

This Isn’t Goodbye

I don’t believe in goodbyes, implying an ending and never seeing a person again. I tried my best to update and open a window into my experiences here. I don’t think words could fully describe what I’ve gained from this program. While my future in art seems a bit… limited at the moment, I will always continue to doodle and photograph on my own time on my beloved iPhone. I hope to see everyone again at some point! So to end this post: see you later!

The End

This is my last post for this session’s blog. These past three weeks went by very quickly. I enjoyed my classes this semester very much. I enjoyed learning new skills. I enjoyed some of the people who I met. I enjoyed my professors. These classes have given me a new motivation for fashion, a new motivation for pushing myself to do better. Who knows what I’ll do when I grow up but what I’ve realized is that at this point it doesn’t really matter. I’m not wasting time by taking these classes because I have all the time in the world. And even if I don’t use these skills in the future, I’m enjoying them now.

I’m sad that it’s over but I know I’ll be back, if not this fall or spring then definitely in the summer.

Thank you, good luck, and good-bye.
