How did you hear about FIDM and why did you choose to attend?
“I was taking a sewing class for fun and my teacher, who was also an instructor at FIDM, invited me to a lecture. As soon as I walked into the lobby of FIDM, I could sense the feeling of creativity and knew that this was where I could acquire the knowledge and develop the skills to achieve my dream.”
How did you choose your majors?
“As a child I had an interest in fashion, however, my family members were not involved in creative fields. I had never taken art classes in China and had no experience in drawing, but after attending that seminar at FIDM, I decided to pursue my dream. After completing the Fashion Design Program, I worked for several companies, including Forever 21. My former instructor suggested that I should consider applying for the Film & TV Costume Design Advanced Study Program. I was accepted and received one of FIDM's Merit Scholarships.”
