She says never give up on your dreams!
Ashlyn Johnson is the Fashion Club President at Plano Senior High School. She just got accepted into FIDM and will start this fall studying Merchandising & Marketing!
Tell us a bit about yourself: I enjoy shopping a lot, traveling and playing with my two dogs. I’m a very shy person at first but once you get to know me I finally come out of my shell.
What made FIDM right for you? I love how FIDM is hands-on, unlike any traditional school, you start building on your career while in school, and of course that it’s by the beach!
Who has been your biggest supporter in guiding you to FIDM? My mom has always been my day one supporter ever since I was born, but she actually gave me the courage and strength to apply to my dream school when other people would start to talk me out of it. She gave me the confidence I needed.
How did being in Fashion Club help you on your path to FIDM? Being in Fashion Club has also gave me the courage to apply to FIDM, listening to the guest speakers talk about what would be best for us and degrees that you can get there and not at traditional schools.
What are your career goals? I plan on being a celebrity stylist, but also a buyer to build my clientele for me to be a stylist.
Any advice to other Fashion Club members who dream about going to FIDM? Never give up on your dreams or what you believe in! Don’t let anybody talk you out of what you believe in.
