I'm raising £20,000 to get my Bachelor's Degree in Fashion from my dream school in Antwerp. I'm considered an international student as I'm Canadian, so my tuition fees are x10 the amount of someone born the UK/EU :(
I have already gone to great lengths to get in the school and my final hurdle is coming up with the money to pay for it. School starts this Sept '17.
My name is Cody and I'm 32 years old. After 10+ years, I'm finally ready to go back to school. I'll be considered a 'mature' student which I see as an advantage. I know myself that much better and in a place where I can now change my life for the better in getting a higher education.
I've always worked in fashion and it's a big part of my life already. I was sucked into the toxic world of retail (those in it understand) for the last 10 years and even tried my own fashion business years ago. They were never for me and took me this long to realize I wasn't happy and that my dream would to be go back to school. The fashion business also made me realize that I wanted to design and that being limited to what other designers produce was very limiting. The business failed because I live in a city in Canada where fashion isn't in the vocabulary. This failure was a huge setback but I got back on my feet after a few years.
Knowing that I need to go back to school to get where I want in life and knowing that I need to go to a city where people live for fashion like me. I found the Royal Academy in Antwerp. This is the first year Antwerp offers the BA in English as well so it's like it's meant to be. I put all my savings into getting into the school and now need to come up with the tuition (biggest hurdle). I would like to see this as an investment in me and knowing that people believed in me would in effect make me work that much harder. I wouldn't take this lightly as I'm 32 years old and ready to get my viewpoint into the world vs. being dictated to. If I ever get my own store(s). I will never treat the employees as badly as I was the last 10 years I worked retail!
