Why did you decide to study this course at Solent?

Since I was in high school I wanted to study in the UK. When the time for choosing a university came, I applied to different ones. However, after looking at all the different courses, I decided that the one at Solent University would be the best one, as it covers a variety of fields. This is something really good for a person who is just stepping into the fashion industry, as you are able to try everything, and in your final year you have already understood what field you are best in and would like to work in in the future.

What’s your favourite part of the course, and what are the biggest challenges?

I cannot choose only one favourite part because all of them are amazing. However, photography has really stolen my heart. One of the biggest challenges is that you need to come out of your comfort zone and work really hard for what you want to achieve. For an international student such as me, the challenges were even bigger, as you really need to overcome the language barrier and all your insecurities. However, after spending three years already at Solent, and with the help of our amazing tutors, I can say that now I am much more comfortable and ready to dive into the fashion world.

This course is for you if you are interested in fashion, want the world the world to see your talent, and are ready to explore new things.

What’s been the biggest highlight of your studies so far?

Every year, at one moment of your studies, you think that you have the biggest highlight. However, this later changes, as you are growing professionally and mentally every year. I think my biggest highlight would be when I finished my final major project this year, as it was something that I put all my energy and heart into. Otherwise every time you have good feedback and comments about your work, from family, friends and so on, you just really feel that you have accomplished something that people appreciate.

What are your future career plans?

I would love to work as a fashion photographer in the near future, but you never know where and how you will end up. The most important thing is to follow your dreams and heart and never give up.
