Interview at UITM for mass communication : disaster? Im not sure.. Dramatic? Yes indeed

So ehem nk ckp bm but since the whole interview was in english imma write in english like I always do ^^

ok found out that I was called for le interview n my reaction was yay!!!! It le uitm haha my dream university♥ but 1 hour later it struck me..... its for mass communication -_- huh I was hoping my life out for design~~ even finished a portfolio on my designs and drawing T.T
Well since my lifelong dream is being a fashion designer but I was a coward of the risks n the amount of commitment needed to actually breath in le fashion industry. So after a dayvof bawling my eyes out I finally starts doing preparation. 

I looked up the study with the help of good old mr about the definition n well... related stuff
Since im a fashion lover/ shopaholic.. dragged mommy to sungei wang to buy me outfits haha spent around rm 200++
But I realized I wasted too much time, once again with le help of master google I found a few tips n tricks.

So here's the deal.... the writing exam is seriously NOT SUPRISING haha.i got the exact same question -_- wish spm was like tht.
The questions are :
Wht do u know about mass com
Why did u choose mass com
How can u contribute in this study if u were choosen

Ok, piece of cake.. xD
But the hard part of the interview is the interview itself. Now dear, in this matter like seriously its all up to le luck n allah
Fortunately (??) I got the 'kinder lecturers' but bear in mind they still have those JUDGEMENTAL EYES.
So actually my 'passion' n guilt for not putting fashion for the first choice on le upu n well thanks to my 'inspiration' kim woo bin-shi~~ I made the most outrageous decision evahhh I brought my portfolio hahaha no-_- seriously

I wasnt sure wht I was hoping but I just wanted to bring it. Its a part of me. So moving on to the moment when I stepped into le room. Ehem mommy said "bagi salam tau!" So even if I look like a man with my blazer n my brouges I said 'Asallamualaikum' as sweetly as I could.
Lets change this into a dialogue ey?

Lctr 1: hve a sit
Lctr 2: so AINA NABIHAH huh *scary much?*
Me    : yes sir hehe
Hands lctr the documents n sneakily puts le bag n the portfolio down
Lctr 1: is that a portfolio?  *seriously this dude is sharp*
Me : ehhh.. *blurrr moment*
Lctr 1: let me see! (Better give it gurll) Oohhhhh * looks at le drawings one by one*
Lctr 2 : so which school did u come from?
Me : smk datok lokman
Lctr 1 n 2 : ??
Me : well its beside t smk aminudin baki ampang*smilesss with shame lmao* (never ending explanation of my school location)
Lctr 1 finishes my portfolio n shows it briely to lctr 2 with a smile on his face.
Lctr 1 : so all this drawings are signed by the kpop artist themselves? *mindblow this dude knows about le kpop*
Me : no.. umm its all my signature ^^
Lctr 2 : why didnt u apply for arts n design department
Lctr 1 : yeah. Im actually impressed with some of the drawings.
Me : I did but I got the mass com offer
Lctr 1n 2 : oh u did
N we keep talking bout my applications on mass com n design
Me : actually I wanted to be a fashion designer but I want to live abroad so I dont think it will work
Lctr 1 : *super judging eyes* if u never try u never know
Lctr 2 : yes thts true
I feel like a criminal
So then starts my story of how I start fearing my own dream.
Lctr 1 : ohh I see *still synical*
Me : *quickly storm up an answer* but the reason why I chose mass com is that so I can do fashion journalism
Lctr 2 : oh so u do hve an idea of where u are going. Thts good
Lctr 1 : u read books?
Me : a lot of fashion magazines of course lctr 2 : wht types
Me : cleo, intrend, harpers bazaar* hihi I lied with le poker face *
Lctr 1 : im actually disappointed that u dont read VOUGE *seriously dude Im like 17.. huh its a bit expensive. Cleo is like 5 dollars*
Me : ohhhh *poker face*
Lctr 1 : *spurts out some weird western lady* u know her?
Me : designer I guess..
Lctr 1 : shes the editor of vouge
Fuuuuuuuuu** im dead
Lctr 2 : u know jimmy choo?
Heh mr thank u for saving me butt
Me: of courseeeeeee *confident beb*
Lctr 2 : I see tht u relly do like fashion
Lctr 1 : smirk
Lctr 2 : wht do u think of kate Middleton
Me : she is very classic and elegant
Lctr 1 : of course
Me : but im dissapointed tht she wont dress more sexy
Lctr 2 : u know she' s pregnant?
Poker le face aibi
Me : yes but still she has great figures why not flaunt it. There's nothing to be ashamed of
Lctr1 looks at lctr 2 with weird/shocked eyes. Turns out my fvcking stupid mind translated Middleton as Winslet. Heol~ I just said tht the princess of england should be more sexy n not be shy -_- im like seriously wow... just wow . Still keeping le poker face.
Lctr 2 : okay lets say tht I give u the chance to choose btwn fashion n mass com.honestly which wud u choose?
Me : *my mind n heart was burning with passion* emotionally fashion of course *like seriously im like.. huh now Im really screwed* but I have so many doubts thats why I want to do fashion journalism
Lctr 1 : ok.. I like how u calculated the risks and all and I see that u do have a point.
Lctr 2 : ok tht would be all . Any question?

So I asked him how I can write about fashion if I don't hve the basics.  N he said its okay,  read a lot of mags n esp VOUGE n just pump up ur portfolio cuz harpers bazaar is constantly searching for people like u. I took my portfolio n documents but before I left this is what I said : I really wants this opportunity
Technically I was trying to ensure them that I do want to learn

So, simply it doesn't matter how prepared u are what important is how u communicate n how u express ur opinions.
Idk if I will get it but I seriously was honest in tht interview n I am proud of myself. Oh another thing POKER FACE. u need to look stern.
