Hey guys! My name is Meghan and I’m currently a senior at the High School of Fashion Industries, where I’m lucky enough to major in Marketing. (Don’t be fooled.. my school isn’t as elaborate and glamorous as it may sound.) Don’t get me wrong though! I love my school dearly. They offer us tons of support to help us pursue our dreams. As a marketing student, I’ve taken Fashion Merchandising, Business Law, Data Entry, Visual Presentation, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and a ton more.
I come from a huge family. I’m talkin’ four-older-brothers-and-a-younger-sister huge. It sounds like the biggest pain in the butt — and trust me, it can be at times, but hey! It’s my life. I grew up in a decent-sized town on Long Island where nothing ever happens. I’m not into the whole “white picket fence” way of life, or the drama, typicality and cattiness that comes with it. Luckily for me, I was able to transfer schools before I caught a case of the Aberzombie.
FIT has been my dream school since I enrolled in my first Precollege course, Fabric Styling, in the summer of my freshmen year. After taking the course, I realized two things for sure; One, I have to go to FIT, and two, fabric styling was defiantly not for me. The spring of my sophomore year I took Intro. to Traditional and Digital Photography which was an amazing course. (Note: to anyone interested in photography, I strongly recommend you enroll in the class. The darkroom gives you a lot more freedom than digital photography.)
To top off my Precollege career, I was fortunate enough to obtain a scholarship to take a class free of charge – Careers in Advertising and Marketing! Not too shabby if you ask me. After the first day of class, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I loved everything about advertising, from creating my own marketing plan to planning promotional events.
So that’s where I am right now: Applying for colleges and scholarships, working, interning for FIT, and just trying to get by the rest of my senior year.
Until next time,
