My friend "I am really considering about doing master in fashion"
Me "From my experience, you had better think about it 10 times before making a decision"
Some of you may know that I am currently doing master degree in International Fashion Marketing Management in Manchester, United Kingdom, while blogging for The Equinox Fashion and doing part-time at modeling agency. However, do you really think that the words 'Master Degree' would really affect in my life?
Some people do master for education, while some do for social status. Personally, I have no idea why I am doing this for Lol To be honest, I have learnt wide variety of things in terms of financial, marketing strategies and organization etc but I have never thought that having master degree would make me more clever or better than anybody out there. It's not like "OMG MASTER DEGREE F*** THE WORLD!!!! <--Not at all!
Even though my thinking process seems to be more logically and more business like, I am still the same person who keeps The Equinox Fashion going in everyday. To have the word 'MA' written on your resume is obviously making your profile stand out, but of course it comes with higher expectation and stress since the companies will absolutely want the best out of you. I am come from the country where people judge each other from education, and you know what, it makes me feel disgusted!
I am the person who feels irritated when working with people who don't know how to work, but i have never judged them. Especially, in these days people can have master degree easily if they have money. It sounds harsh, but I don't really think that you need to have master degree if you want to work in this industry. Why? It is all about ''EXPERIENCE" I have been working in this industry for 3 to 4 years, and I keep asking myself "why the hell I am doing master for?..." I am suffering myself by trying to finish assignments which don't really make senses to me. If you can't work, if you don't have skills when applying for jobs, then what are you even doing here?
Anyway, the show must go on right? I need to accomplish this degree for my sake, as well as, to make my parents proud. They expect a lot in me and it took me ages to prove to my mom that blogging is my dream job. My mom didn't understand what this blogosphere would impact my life since she considered it as a hobby. She kinda old school you know, she wants me to settle down with a full-time job in a big organization etc. However, now I quite happy that she is more opening to what I am doing :) So, mom this Master Degree, I am doing for you.
