My Goals

Hey lovely readers,

Ever since I’ve started the precollege program at FIT, it really makes you look at your future in all aspects. It could be extremely stressful but also extremely enjoyable and satisfying. When you finally know what you want and how to get there. For myself, I have quite the grasp on what I want to do but also I am prepared for anything to come…I hope. My first choice college would have to be FIT, but if unfortunately I did not get accepted. I would like to go to SUNY Oneonta, and major in Fashion Merchandising and minor in Business Communications. Thinking about where I am going to be in 5 or 10 years makes me feel all kinds of nervous. But, I would like to have an internship or a job at a luxury brand like Marc Jacobs, Burberry, or Givenchy. I am so interested in how they start the new trends and how other brands follow. I would even love to work at a fashion magazine, working with the featured clothes and styles.

Even though my goals are broad and time consuming, anyone who is determined can get anywhere they want in life. I know, so cliche. But starting a little bit smaller: My FIT precollege goals. I am starting my 5th week and obviously, I am loving it. I find the city very motivating and every person so interesting. I have my next project due this upcoming week for Fashion Forecasting and I am very nervous! We had to take an era in time and research about its fashion trends. We have to do an oral presentation, a mood board or a PowerPoint, and an essay. I really hope I do well, I worked harder on this than my actual homework. My goals in the class is to obviously do well and absorb every possible thing out of the lessons. Also, to really enjoy the city and my new friends.

I feel as though I grow every week. It is such an experience…from the commute to the class. I really need these next weeks to slow down! 

Congratulation Aurora!

Student: Rachel (19 (Second year college student)) from Buffalo, NY

Work Study: I am a work study student for the precollege office at FIT. I have been working here since my freshmen year and absolutely love it! I’ve developed great relationships with the staff, professors and even the high school students. I love watching the high schoolers succeed, and I get so excited when I hear they got accepted to the school! I can really relate to them because I was in their position just a few years ago!

Major: Fashion Merchandising Management

Describe your personal style: My style is very girly. I love bright colors, patters, and accessories. My favorite place to shop is Urban Outfitters. I love hats and bright lipstick!

Where do you go on your breaks from class? Living in the city has been amazing. On my free time, I love exploring the different museums and gardens around manhattan. I am a dancer so I love seeing broadway shows! I also take class at The Broadway Dance Center when I can.

What is your favorite thing about FIT? The Best part of my FIT experience has been the FIT dance team. I have a passion for dance and have met the most mazing people through it. We all come from different backgrounds but have formed such a strong bond through dance!

Who or what inspires you? Music inspires me mostly. I love all types of music, especially indie and acoustic stuff. It gets me through the day! As far as fashion goes, I love Olivia Palermo. Her style is amazing and I’m definitely inspired by it!

What do you want to do after you graduate from college? After college, I hope to be a buyer for a major company. Buying has always been my dream job!!!
