Friday was a very memorable day
As obvious, I was accepted into the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) to pursue my passion in the Beauty Industry. I will be potentially majoring in Beauty Industry Merchandising and Marketing to launch my career in the business behind the unglamorous side of the Beauty Industry. I applied last week after months of contemplating! I didn't know I would be accepted this fast. lol. I sat in a Community College for the past year and a half and realized that majoring in Communications/Public Relations is something I aspire to finish but I wanted to spice things up and branch into something that is more specific in that field.
People, if you have a passion and a dream and you have the drive, motivation and mind set, Don't let anything stop you from going out to get it. It's a rough world out there, be COMPETITIVE! Don't be afraid of changes, changes are good. If you are unhappy, FIX IT. I'm beginning to make slow and dramatic changes in my life and the most important thing about making them is to PLAN. Don't do things out of impulse, and don't plan things for today, plan for tomorrow and the future.
Sadly, I will be going to the campus in L.A. I say sadly because it's not my favorite city. It's in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and traffic is ridiculous. lol...But despite of that I'm excited!
If you are looking into getting accepted into FIDM, make sure it is what you really want! It's an expensive school to go to. If you "think" it is what you want, DON'T GO, and if you "know" it is what you have a passion for, GO!
Basically, you have to do an entrance project, write an admissions essay, and have 3 professional references. They are not hard to do if you are creative and pour your heart and soul into the project. It's what they base you on, besides grades and G.P.A.
