Joyce Pereira joins us for two weeks of work experience this week. Find out more about the budding fashion student here;
“Hello, my name is Joyce Pereira and I am doing two weeks of work experience here at Fashion Capital (10/07/17 – 21/07/17).
Based in Leyton, East London, I have just finished year 10 at Holy Family Catholic School. At school I am currently studying Art, Media and Geography. I thoroughly enjoy my art and media classes as they are mainly coursework based so I get to escape from writing essays and doing calculations and rather design, create and learn new creative skills, which is a lovely change from the usual, academic subjects. I particularly enjoy art as it is a constant learning experience where I am experimenting with different mediums and developing my ideas. Media is also an amazing subject as I am able to explore making a magazine and look into many creative industries.
After completing secondary school I plan to study at sixth-form to complete my A-levels, and then take my education further and perhaps study an aspect of the fashion industry at a higher level. In particular, I have always been interested in fashion journalism as I have a passion for writing. To see an article written by myself in an influential magazine such as Vogue would be a dream come true.
I was drawn to the fashion industry after seeing the influence fashion has on our everyday lives and how celebrities inspire millions of people simply with their fashion choices. I am really passionate about social media and the impact it has on the fashion industry.
Here at Fashion Capital I hope to get an insight of what the fashionindustry is really like and how I could find my place within it. I am very grateful to have been given this opportunity and I hope this fortnight will be a memorable and exciting experience where I can gain many new skills and deepen my knowledge of the world of fashion. Hopefully I will determine a career path along the way and decide where my future lies.”
