My Greatest Supporters

My biggest supporters have always been my mom and dad. Thank you for everything. I would also like to thank professors Laura Miller, Lydia Greer, and Rosemary Graham for guiding me during my time at Saint Mary's.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

I really enjoyed taking my Fencing and Japanese Language and Culture Jan Term classes. Both classes offered a unique experience of learning something I would otherwise not be able to do, and they also allowed me to meet really great people.

My Next Chapter

I am excited to see where the art world will take me, and am planning on continuing my own creative practice. I hope to work with animation studios on character design and concept art, while also pursuing my dream of publishing my own graphic novel.
