FIT is right for me!

Hi everyone! This past weekend there were no classes and believe it or not my Saturday felt really empty. Im going to be very honest for a second. Going into this class I was really unsure if I was going to like it or not. I was also concerned that I wouldn’t be able to keep up or that I wouldn’t know as much as the other people in the class. Looking back on it I don’t know why I ever had those thoughts and doubts in my mind. This class has opened so many new doors for me. Its made me more independent, led me to writing this blog and most importantly it made me realize how much I love fashion. Its also led me to become more mature and I feel like I am on the right path now. Until taking this class I was really unsure of what I wanted to do in the future but now I know. Even though some people are haters and will say “Why would you want to go to school on the weekends?” it doesn’t matter because I know FIT is where I belong.

I really want to clear something up for anyone who is nervous about taking a Precollege class. Don’t be. You will make so many new friends and everyone in the class is there to learn too. Even if you don’t know every minuscule detail about fashion who cares? Taking a Precollege class has definitely changed my life for the better and I don’t regret taking it at all. I hope this makes anyone who had any doubts change their mind.

Until next time,

Nicole
