About Me: I am a 20-year-old from Chester, PA. I grew up in a household with a single mother and my 5 other siblings. I am the middle child! I am a student athlete of 9+ years, I run track. I like to design and create things; I have a very creative mind. I hope to become an interior designer/graphic designer/photographer one day (it’s hard to choose one so I want to do all!). On the side I like to take photos and I also model other people’s brands/businesses. Lastly, I am an honor student who is dedicated to her work and future.
Why did I choose my major: My college did not have interior design as a major so the closest I would get is visual arts and plus I wanted to tap deeper
