Preparing for the essay I will be writing for FIT

What makes Me the Perfect Candidate for FIT? Why am I interested in the major I am applying for?

Here's my first draft brainstorm:

. Company name: Paradise Millinery specializing in originals and one of a kind hats
. 20 years experience
. self taught

. want techniques to grow, want instruction
. want skills and understanding to grow in the business world of fashion
. ALWAYS wanted to learn how to create shoes and handbags (perfect pairing for hats!)

. to open a shop where I create and sell my hats, handbags, and shoes, as well as, operate a gallery to feature my artwork and support local artists through monthly shows and events.
. to work with designers in creating hats to compliment their lines for runway and market.
. to become a better designer and business woman so that I can live an exceptional life doing and succeeding in what I was born to DO!

I am SO READY to learn! I am open to all the expertise that FIT offers. I need FIT to grow. I have gone as far as I can in 20 years of learning on my own. Because I am established in my design work I will be able to keep my aesthetic while fine tuning, polishing and preparing myself for ultimate success.

I look forward to the true opportunity to learn, ask questions, step through the doors that FIT will open. Truly this will be a dream come true.

So over the weekend I will be spinning all these ideas into what I hope to be an inspiring, irresistible essay for success. I am VERY open to thoughts, help, and ideas if you have any. Mahalo!
