So, after months of anticipating the acceptance letter, she received the rejection letter. She went to the school to see if she could talk to the dean of fashion design. There was nothing he could do to admit her that semester, but he recommended she would take courses at the school to build her portfolio.
After a couple of courses her drawing had improved dramatically. She put together a new and improved portfolio and submitted it the next semester.
She continued her courses at F.I.T. and anticipated that acceptance letter once again. She wasn't sure if she could take another rejection. If she didn't get accepted this time she might have given up. Her family kept reminding her and asking what if she doesn't get accepted this time? She did not know.
