My name is ***, I am from China and living in Florida.
This is my third year in U.S. and I’ve enjoyed my study and living here so much that I want to take a couple of more years to stay here to finish my high school and the incoming university.
My parents and my younger brother live in China and they plan to move to U.S. next year. Although they are always tied up with their own business in China, their love for my brother and me never fades. My parents admire the power of education and spare no efforts to offer me the best education they could. They have a solid belief that it suits me better with an American education and that is why they sent me here. It turns out the decision merits, I’ve learnt and grown so much in the past three years. Not only the landscape, food and culture that broaden my horizon but also the friends I made with in school that kept me independent. All in all, I appreciate the decision they made to send me to this wonderful free land to chase after my dream.
Speaking of my dream, I’ve liked to dress up since I was a little girl, deeming it shows respect to others with dedicate clothes. My passion for cosmetics and clothes grows with my age, I pick and match the clothes myself and spend a lot of time to observe and research how the designers work. In my opinion, each item of clothes supposed to be a unique artwork, since the hard-work and passion the designer put it . It is not an overstatement to say that each delicately designed clothes bears the soul the designer breathed into. In addition to that, despite of some bold or tedious design, we can also make the clothes shine with the proper match.
My encounter with the haute couture started with a J.W.Anderson overcoat I bought in N.Y. when I studied there. From then on, I started to pay attention to the renowned designers and their shows. I also bought some of their clothes from time to time. The clothes I bought combined with the ones that the model wear in the runway show inspires me to be a designer . The image that the models wear the clothes I designed starting get vivid when I started to learn design drawings by myself. The more I get into the design ,the clearer the fact that only knowing how to draw is far from being a professional designer. That is why I want to study design as a major in F.I.D.M.
I struggled a little bit before I finally decided to apply for F.I.D.M. because I know how challenging it is as a designer, it implies to a huge amount of devotion and hardworking . Based on the exact same reason, I made my decision with no regret because I know being a renowned designer is always my passion and my dream. Furthermore, one of my friends was enrolled by F.I.D.M, through him and the information on the website, I get to know more and more about this distinguished institution. I am impressed by the dynamic, career-focused learning environment in the classroom and out of it. Also knowing a fact that most of the faculties are talented industry professionals. Besides ,the high employment rate of the graduates strengthens my confidence that I will fulfill my dream as a designer with the help of them. I am also very fond of L.A. not only for the comfortable weather but also the renowned reputation as the Fashion City. The regular fashion show hold by F.I.D.M in L.A. offers a lot of precious opportunity to the eager students as me.
I am looking forward to have an opportunity to study with the most vigorous students and the renowned professors in F.I.D.M. I will work hard and fight for my dream. Thank you for your time and your early reply will be highly appreciated.
