This week’s FBFF questions ask:
Q: If you could do anything professionally, what would it be?
A: How do I narrow it down? College was a bit of a disaster – I couldn’t make up my mind which major to choose! I started with Fashion Design, but thought that wasn’t going to be a broad enough degree, so I switched to
Boring Business. I can’t remember why, but I took an Art History class and fell. in. love. I started that track but fell to pieces over the four years (!) of Latin. I always thought if I was going to learn a second (or third, or fourth) language, it would be a language I could use more often, like Spanish, or German. Back to the Business track, I took Economics and couldn’t wait to take Economics II; I had dreams of politics and economics swirling in my head. Surprised I haven’t mentioned math yet? After my first Calculus class, I was convinced I wanted to be a math teacher; it didn’t take very long before I realized I only wanted to teach students who loved math, not the students who were just there to fulfill requirements. Then there was the bout with photography, visual merchandising (I even did an internship for this one, that I loved,) nursing, dental hygiene, turf management (yep, you read that right,) physical fitness……….anyway, I ended up with Business Administration. Practical and terribly boring (in my mind, anyway.) Now that I’ve had time to regret my final decision, guess what I would love to go back to school for? That’s right. Fashion Design.
Q: What draws you to this?
A: My love for fashion, art, photography, creativity……the list goes on.
Q: When did you first start dreaming about this ideal?
A: I suspect this dream began before I was even born. I can’t remember a time when this wasn’t what I wanted!
Q: What’s holding you back from going all in?
A: I need to get back to school. Anyone want to babysit? Haha!
Q: What’s one step you can take now on the way to realizing your dream?
