Admissions Advisor: Cathy Chambers
How did your advisor help with the process? My advisor was a really big help with every part of the admissions process. She was truly great at making things easy and also at answering any questions I had. Any time I was confused or needed help, she would assist me.
What are your proudest accomplishments so far? Something I am proud of was being brave enough to start my own YouTube channel. I've been watching YouTube videos for so many years and making videos always appealed to me. Recently I finally made myself a channel and starting posting videos that I love creating.
What made FIDM right for you? FIDM seemed so perfect for me because it has the major that I would really love to pursue. It will allow me to take a creative path in life, which is what I've always wanted.
Describe your entrance project. In my entrance project I showed old videos that I used to make as a kid to show that making videos is something I truly have been interested in for so long. I also showed some clips from the current YouTube videos I have been making.
What do you expect to learn at FIDM? At FIDM, I would love to really expand my knowledge as well as skills on filming and editing videos.
