Mia asks Jax about her experience studying Social Media at FIDM.
Justin Sienna HS Fashion Club Pres Mia Johnson has plans to attend FIDM to study Social Media or Interior Design, so we arranged for her to get her questions answered about these programs from FIDM Students and Grads! She just interviewed FIDM Social Media Student and American Idol star Jax and wrote about it on SweetLifeofMia.com. We’ve excerpted it here for you to check out!
Mia: What made you decide to major in Social Media at FIDM?
Jax: I started at age 11 and have been working on social media since I was young. My career in social media grew after American Idol and became a business once verified on social media.
Mia: What’s your experience like at FIDM?
Jax: This is my first year at FIDM and I am onto my second semester. This was a last minute decision and I have always been into social media.
Mia: How did you get into singing?
Jax: I was always singing and I did a lot of musicals as a child. I moved from New Jersey to New York to be in a garage band and to be on Disney. My singing career grew into Rock n’ Roll. My first record came when I was 14 and I auditioned to be on American Idol when I was 18.
Mia: For all your young fans and those that want to potentially be on American Idol, what advice would you give?
Jax: Once you pick your craft, practice it. I recommend reading Outliers to master your craft and do not stop working. Don’t give up.
Mia: What social media outlet do you use the most?
Jax: I would say Instagram. I check Instagram in the morning and it replaces Snapchat. Instagram is the largest platform afterall!
Mia: Back to FIDM, I will begin the application process this summer. What was the application process like for you?
Jax: I spoke with admission advisors, Mike and Shirley, who helped me fill out the portfolio and my admission. You fill out the portfolio based off the curriculum you wish to study.
