Angeline's Story

My passion is modeling.

When I was younger, I used to watch America's Next Top Model with my mom, and I was completely fascinated with the show and the art of modeling. Modeling is not just simply walking or showing off clothes; Models are artists and they paint beautiful pictures with their facial expressions and body language. With that being said, after staring wide eyed at America's Next Top Model and then at pictures of Naomi Campbell, I declared modeling my passion.

FIT High School Summer Live will help me develop my passion for modeling because I will be in an environment with people who have the same goals as me. This program will give me the confidence and self-esteem boost I so badly need in every day life.

A Note from Mrs. Bierce, Angeline's Teacher

"Angeline is an extremely hard working student. I have had the pleasure of watching her display exemplary passion during my geometry class and during her debate class. During class, she is incredibly persistent and motivated. She is never off-task, and she is always working hard to ensure that she understands the material.

Angeline is a good candidate for FIT High School Summer Live because she is a highly motivated, low income student. She would never be able to attend a program like this without the help of a program like Wishbone. This program will teach her how to present herself with confidence, which is a necessary skill regardless of her future employment."

My Life-changing Summer at FIT

My summer at FIT was filled with excitement and fun. It was wonderful going to the heart of America, NYC, every day. Taking summer classes at FIT opened up my eyes to the fashion world. I was able to see the mechanics and a lot of the work like marketing and photo styling that goes into these huge fashion brands and magazines. I was around people who were interested in going to college for fashion and later having careers in fashion, and I was able to learn from them. I also became a little more outgoing and put myself out there to talk to new people. Thank you to everyone who made this opportunity possible.

Excited for Fashion Institute of Technology in New York

This summer, I will be going to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and learning about clothes, fashion, and styling. I will be taking Styling, Fashion, Food, and Fashion in-store merchandising classes at FIT. I decided to go to FIT this summer so that I can expand my knowledge about the world of fashion since fashion is one of my passions and it also is deeply connected to my other passions. I have always been curious and intrigued about fashion trends, like how they first get started, what makes people become intrigued with them, and how they spread so quickly. I am excited to be in one of the fashion capitals of the world, New York, as this will help me to immerse myself even more in my studies about fashion. It is the best place to explore and learn about fashion. I hope to gain more insight about how fashion affects our world, the different type of styles out there, and even how fashion affects things like our food packaging. I cannot wait to incorporate my new knowledge into my everyday life and my style. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.
