Hi im new!!


Junior Member
Hi im Betty, im a second year student at University college Falmouth and am studying Performance sportswear design. I know its not the usual design course but its pretty fun making wetsuits and snowboarding gear etc.

Im obviously really interested in sports, and living in Cornwall mainly watersports, like Ive been sailing all my life and am learning to windsurf. (attempted surfing but i just cnt do it!!) Im also very interested in fashion especially as my course is run along side a fashion design degree, Im also very into photography and usually have my camera everywhere!

I don't have a website or portfolio as of yet but hoping to sort that out soon.

I am currently trying to apply for work experience over summer but finding writing a cover letter a tad tricky, if anyone has any advice would be much appreciated!

welcome to the forum :)
I'm sure some people can give good advice on a cover letter, maybe create a new post giving some more information on the stuff you need help with?

Hello Betty, and welcome, how lucky you are to live in Cornwall!

Have you got any photo's online? There's so much inspiration down there, the coastline is awesome!

Welcome Betty. Your course sounds really interesting! Evey year I say i'm going to snowboard/ski but never get round to booking it!

Would love to go to Cornwall too.. maybe this summer!!

For your cover letter - Probs best to get everything you can think of written down in rough draft, then start editing it. Google for example letters if you're stuck. If you post on here i'd be happy to help!

Hi Betty.

Welcome to DF, sounds like an interesting course you're on, but makes me think you should be in Australia!? :) Look forward to seeing your work if you get it online, and as for a cover letter, I'm sure there's been a few threads about this in the past (I'll try and find those for you) and as the others have said post up what you have so far, I'm sure you'll get some assistance, Ally is good with the old copywriting!!

Welcome along betty, let us know when you get your website or portfolio sorted and im sure people will help you reach your goal, hope you enjoy
