I've known for a couple of days, but I wanted to tell as many people in person before I posted anything online. I've been accepted into VCU's Communication Arts program. Needless to say I am very excited!! It was hard work, but it was worth it!
A year ago, I did not understand why I was waived from VCU's Art Foundation program. (You go through that program before applying to your major.) I was told that only happened to amazing artists (which my portfolio at that time was VERY FAR from amazing). When your portfolio get's waived they will then send it to the program you want to apply to right away. I chose to apply to the Communication Arts. After applying I was told by many that the Communication Arts program was the hardest program to get into. Very few people get into that program. I honestly felt a little hopeless. I did not make it in my first time. But since I was waived from Art Foundations, I would not lose a year so I decided to try again.
So I did. After nearly a year, creating a brand new portfolio, meetings with VCU professors (who are all wonderful) and after getting my associates at a community college. I am happy to say that I made it. I am beyond estastic about starting this new chapter in my life. I am also excited to share my work created in this program with you all!
