What is your major?

Double major of Communication with Media concentration and Studio Art with Graphic Design concentration

I was accepted to the Disney College Program for next semester, but I also have some interviews lined up for full-time jobs. I will see where those take me, but I’m very excited about the program and the opportunities it can bring.

Do you have a long-term plan beyond what you’re doing right after graduating?

I plan on going to graduate school at some point in the future. I’m still deciding on what field of communication and design I am most interested in pursuing.

Who is someone who inspires you?
