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

I have always had a passion for design and knew I wanted my future to be involved with design in some sort of way. I took design, computer, and art classes and high school and was then hooked on digital media.

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

I applied to the Arts + Architecture Honors Program because I was excited about all of the amazing opportunities and experiences that the program has to offer, and that it pushes you out of your comfort zone.

What kind of career do you hope to have?

I am currently partaking in my 5th Graphic Design internship and am hoping to work as a Graphic Designer and someday a Design Director for a publishing or marketing agency. 

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

I love the small class sizes!

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

I joined a sorority and I love to do stuff with them; we do a lot of volunteering which is a lot of fun to do with a big group of friends.
