    Just Accepted Vis Comm Transfer Student Ran a Type 1 Diabetes Charity for Kids

    Unnamed

    Name: Erin Hook

    Age: 19 

    Previous College: University of Colorado at Boulder 

    FIDM Major: Visual Communications

    Campus and Start Date: Los Angeles, October 2015

    Admissions Advisor: Christina Haynes

    How did your advisor help you with the admissions process? My advisor was very helpful guiding me through the entire admission process and really acted like a cheerleader of sorts. She believed in my abilities.

    Tell us about yourself. My hobbies are volleyball (I played competitively for seven years), I love to snowboard, and I have been involved in a mentor program for people with Type 1 diabetes called Diabuddies. I also ran a charity for several years that I created called Shots for Sponsors. I was very lucky and raised $27,000 for kids to go to camp for Type 1 diabetes. My other interests and my inspiration comes from spending time with my family and my friends. I love the visual arts and look forward to being a part of FIDM.

    Why did you choose FIDM? FIDM feels right to me in every way. I have always loved the kind of work I will get to do in my major but now I can finally see it as a future career.

    Tell us about your entrance project. My entrance project involved an interpretation of circles, triangles, and squares. Since FIDM is a design school, I took various logos, maybe 30, from various famous stores and designers and arranged them strategically and then shaded some of the circles, diamonds, and squares with neon by hand. For other parts of the project, I designed the interior of a high-end boutique and store window. For the store window, I resisted using mannequins and did something different. It was fun and looked really different.

    What do you expect to learn at FIDM? I expect to learn how to do a variety of things in my field. I understand the faculty is great and I have opportunities to intern and travel and work in a real world setting doing the things I love.
