I wanted to announce that I will be attending the Fashion Institute of Technology for fashion business management this upcoming fall. This feels like a dream come true. I still can’t believe that I will be living in New York City in less than three months!
I was unfortunately waitlisted on April 1st, and it was probably the worst day of my life. FIT was the college on the top of my list, and I couldn’t picture myself being anywhere else. I was so devasted and kept questioning myself about why I wasn’t accepted. Being waitlisted made me want to go to FIT even more! I did absolutely everything I could to get off the waitlist, and it worked! I received an email while driving to my senior prom pictures with my parents, and we nearly crashed the car because of our excitement. I will remember that day for eternity. Hard work and dedication really does pay off.
If you have your heart set on something, don’t give up. Everything will fall into place over time. I am very thankful for all of my friends and family who have supported and believed in me through this challenging process!
I am so excited to start this next chapter of my life.
