Happy Friday Everyone! Today's post is very special and important to me as I'm going to share with you one of the most amazing experiences I had in all my life, that's maybe why it took a bit of time before writing it, just to find the right words and feelings inside me.
You maybe don't know it yet but I had a different vocational training from what I do (or better, try to aim for) now. After high school diploma, I studied law but I made a huge mistake as it wasn't the right choice for me at all. Luckily, the years spent at university are just a far memory now and I'm easily able to talk about them, but if I only could turn back the time, I'd rather take a different decision with no doubts, even though I don't regret those years, they made the person I am now. However, my dream has always been to study fashion, fashion styling to be clear, that's why I started the blog, to feel everyday a little close to it and in the meantime I became always more passionate about the field of fashion and beauty, till being a huge obsession :)
Last spring, I joined the Faery Academy, a well-known and prestigious academy, now an accredited agency from Regione Autonoma Sardegna, based here in Cagliari, founded and run by 2 of the most amazing people I know: Silvia Cannas and Luca Deiana. For years I dreamed to attend the academy, my goal was, in fact, to make my passion a real job.
At the Faery Academy I took two courses so far: one in Image Consultant and Self Branding (held by Silvia and Luca), in May; and one in MakeUp Artist (held by the famous Rossano De Cesaris, helped by his sweet assistant Alice Alfonsi), in July. Who follow me on Instagram might probably remember my adventures there but if you like check out their facebook page to see the photos, they are so beautiful and will definitely arouse your curiosity (here, here, here, here and here). I really learnt so so much during these courses, short but very intense; my personal taste on many things is changed and also my fashion sense has been influenced in some way. I met new interesting and nice people who inspired me, and made new friendships too.
The academy is always active and offers many other professional courses during the year, always held by great and selected professional figures in the specific area, and is my intention to keep to attend it whenever will be new courses I'm interested in. My experience at the Faery Academy, in fact, has been fantastic, one of the best ever in my life and I highly recommend it not only to the people who live in my country but also abroad. The atmosphere is friendly, the mood is so inspiring and creative, the people are nice, kind and always very helpful.
Next January their new regional course in makeup artist will be launched and I'm very thrilled and happy for them because they are now an accredited agency and that means the certificate issued at the end of this course will be valid in all the EU territory, not only in the country. Is really a big opportunity for us Sardinian but also everyone who have the dream to become a makeup artist and want to be trained in a high-qualified academy.
My path is still long and still don't know where will lead me, but one thing is sure, I won't ever give up on the passions and things that make me feel alive; the Faery Academy helped me to make some of my dreams come true, to believe in myself more and to take the courage to seriously pursue my goals in life and in job, for that I will be always thankful and proud to have be trained by them :)
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks a lot for reading!
