At the beginning of this summer I expected to have a nice summer but it turned out excellent. My final projects were great; both classes helped me to define my future as well as to develop new skills for my college career which is going to be Advertising and Marketing Communications. Being in a design school was a new experience because Mexican schools or universities are very different and being surrounded by people with my same interest is something unforgettable; it was very easy to get along with everyone because of this.
Both of my classes were great! My morning class not only helped me to develop new skills for something I have alwats wanted to do – fashion design it also helped me to learn that fashion design is not my thing. My real passion is advertising. Therefore, my second class was a turning point in my future because now I have a wide idea of what I plan to study and I have developed some skills that, for sure, are going to help me in college. As you know in a few days I will be studying in Italy, but now I am more confident. Being in this huge city for three weeks helped me to mature and value things. Of course I missed my parents, but I also had time to get know myself better, which makes me very happy. I now feel more prepared for everything that comes next.
My friends were an important part in this experience: I shared fun moments with them, I went to the beach and went shopping and explored New York. I am really going to miss them a lot. Hopefully we can still get in touch in the future. One of the great things about FIT was the diversity. For example, my best friends were from Filipinas, Argentina and Miami. I can’t wait to study at FIT and to live in the city permanently. Thank you for being part of my experience and see you soon!!
