School Update

So this year, I am a Junior in High School. I don’t know why, but I just realized how fast senior year and then graduation is approaching. For the past few months, I have been looking at some Universities, mainly ones that have fashion programs. My top pick is FIDM – Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. For approximately, a month and a half now, I have been speaking with a lady named, Peggy Quayle, who is the Director of Admissions. She has been helping¬†learn and prepare possible scholarship opportunities and early advantages I could have. Which for me is super exciting. If I keep my grades and GPA up, I could be excepted into the Junior Advantage program, which is where you basically get to experience the FIDM student life before college begins. I am also looking at being president or vice president of the Fashion Club at my school. One because I love it and two because I could get some amazing scholarships.¬† I have also been working very hard on my grades because honestly, at the beginning, my grades weren’t that great. I would have very bad anxiety attacks at school and due to that, I would miss school quite a bit. Now, I am doing better and getting everything on track. In fact, on my recent report card, I had only one C and the rest were A’s & B’s.

To be honest, God is just moving everything into place. I know God has a plan and I trust in Him to execute it. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me.

Fashion Competition

I apologize for not posting lately. I have been busy creating an outfit for an amazing fashion competition I got into through school. It is called Junior League.

Only 5 people from my level were chosen to compete based on their initial garments. I am proud to say I am one of the five! The theme of the second half was fairy tales. I picked Aladdin from a hat, which I was super excited about! I have loved the movie Aladdin since I was young. I especially loved princess Jasmine. For my design, I wanted to bring a more fashion forward, trendy look to my design. I took inspiration from the magic carpet and the colors she wore. I ended up designing a sleeveless pleated top with a pleated neckline with a cream and gold patterned wide leg pant. As well as a teal train with a hand sewn/beaded design. An I am extremely happy and proud of the way it turned out.

Tomorrow 03/25 I have my dress rehearsal to practice how things will run and how we will walk down the runway. We will be getting judged tomorrow as well. Our actual show is on April 1st. I am so excited! I have jumped through so many hurdles to get this outfit done. I am so proud of myself. I have never done anything like this in my life and it is such a huge opportunity. I am thankful to be a part of this!
