This FC Pres from San Francisco is on fire!
S/o to Faith Giron, FC Pres at Raoul Wallenberg HS in San Francisco, for getting accepted into FIDM to study Visual Communications!
Describe your personal style: My personal style is very animated, and changes almost every day. One day I could wear a very classy outfit with strappy heels, a dress and a fur trenchcoat, while the next day I could be rocking oversized camo pants, a black hoodie and an orange bomber with sneakers thrown on, as well. My style differentiates throughout the weeks, but no matter what, I am always put together. My outfits show who I am as an individual, and allows me to stand out from the crowd in one the best ways.
What’s your favorite thing in your wardrobe and why? My favorite thing about my wardrobe is that there isn’t a specific style or trend that dominates the rest. My wardrobe consists of so many articles of different clothing that allow me to mix and match, change styles up, or even dress up or dress down.
What do you love about fashion and/or the fashion industry? What I love about the fashion industry is that it allows creative minds to come together and create something for the people. I love that fashion trends are constantly changing, whereas something brand new comes along or past trends are brought back (For example, the 90’s style is back in). The fashion industry is so charismatic, fun, and is open to each individual style. Fashion creates identities. Fashion creates style, a way of living for people. It allows you to show people who you are. Fashion helps build confidence, character, beliefs, and personality. Fashion is a lifestyle.
Tell us one thing you plan to do with your Fashion Club this year: One thing I plan to do with my fashion club is include a lot of student involvement within my school, and plan activities that allow the club to get out of their comfort zones and explore who they really are, and what their style is.
What are your career goals? I will be attending FIDM San Francisco this year, 2017, majoring in Visual Communications. I plan to know exactly what I want to do while I’m at my dream college, doing something I am passionate about.
Can you describe your process of getting admitted to FIDM? The process of getting admitted to FIDM started from the moment I entered high school to now. I was in the 7th grade when I first heard about FIDM, and since then I have always been so passionate about attending the college. I made it my ultimate goal.
As a freshman in high school, I began to attend open houses at the San Francisco campus, since I live nearby. I can’t even remember how many I’ve gone since I’ve attended so many. When I became a sophomore, I began to ask questions about admissions. Although being a sophomore is a bit early for applying to college, I took initiative and got in contact with Janette, one of the admissions advisors. She guided me on my path to achieving my goal.
Fortunately, I was able to gain early admissions into FIDM when I became a junior. Janette helped me figure out what major suited me the best—Visual Communications. She showed me my entrance project, and guided me along the way. We always kept in touch and never lost communication. We set up a date to come in for my entrance interview with Laurel. On April 26th, 2016, I got accepted into my dream college. Thanks to Janette, she guided me with my project, updated me with any news happening with FIDM, went over guidelines with me, and helped me get into the one school I was most passionate about.
Laurel, my new advisor, is now helping me with financial aid, scholarships, grants, and is guiding me on my journey until the day when I step foot onto the campus as an official FIDM Student.
Anything else you’d like to share? Thank you to everyone who has helped me grow and achieve my goal. I hope to make everyone proud once I become a graduate of FIDM. 🙂
