Give a little general information about yourself: how did you become interested in the arts/design?

I became interested in art/design because ever since I was young. I always had a passion for drawing, crafts, painting and anything that involved my creative side. In high school, I enjoyed art class and all the projects. My favorite medium at the moment is oil paints.

Why did you apply to the Arts + Architecture Honors Program?

I applied to this program because being in the Arts + Architecture Honors Program at UNC Charlotte, I would not only be able to graduate with honors, but it would give me several opportunities to expand my knowledge into a higher level in the art field. I would have the opportunity to collaborate and be in the same group with students who have the same passions and goals as myself.

What kind of career do you hope to have?

In the future, I hope to have a career in graphic design. My goal is to either be apart of a company and design their logo, website, magazine, etc. or I would really enjoy having my own company where I am able to design logos for multiple companies and businesses.

What is your favorite thing about the College of Arts + Architecture?

My favorite thing about the College of Arts + Architecture is that I am surrounded by such a great group of students who are in the same major as myself. We are able to work and study together.

When you are not in class, studying, or working, what do you like to do for fun?

In my free time I enjoy playing intramural soccer, listening to music, painting and spending time with my friends and family.
