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
into my creativity and learn different art styles. I feel like visual arts have taught me so much from digital design to art history. I instantly added new skills to my resume within the first year of college. It is so much to learn in the art world, and I’ve quickly learned that it is not all about coloring and drawing.
Where do I see myself after graduation: I see myself starting my profession as a wide range artist and exploring the world! I want to have my job in motion along with an apartment in either Hawaii, Arizona or Virginia.
What do I do for fun: I draw, paint, binge watch shows and movies, and also take pictures.
What am I hoping to learn from my internship: I hope to gain knowledge, that is the biggest thing for me to always know more. Also, I would like to network more, I feel like life is all about networking and the people you associate yourself with so I am hoping I can get out there and meet new people.
Why is it important to get an internship when getting your degree: I think it is important to start an internship in the field you hope to work in when you get out of college. I say that because it will set you up for the real job and help you learn the rope of things before you go out on your own. It is good to seek guidance and start off small while you’re in college. I look at it as riding a bike, you start off with training wheels and as you get comfortable with the movement and balance of the bicycle you can take them off and you’re riding like a pro!
