PCA sits down with freshman Dhir Baxi to discuss the Foundation program, life in Paris, and selecting a major.
Where are you from and where did you grow up?
I am British but originally Indian though I was born and brought up in Hong Kong, and did secondary school in Singapore.
What made you interested in studying art in higher education in Paris?
During my university application process, I slowly realised that being in an artistic field was something I wanted to do as more than just a hobby. I never really considered coming to Paris until Kaamna from PCA came to visit my high school, after this, I realised that this was something I really wanted to try out and explore.
What major have you chosen to go into and has it changed from what you had envisioned before starting Foundation year?
I intend to choose Fashion as a major. My decision has not necessarily changed but it has definitely been solidified over my time in my foundation year. I was on the fence when I began the course but now after trying different subjects and media, as well as actually exploring the real industry through internship opportunities, I am really sure of my choice.
