How are you going to celebrate your win?

I am going to celebrate by continuing to create! There are so many things I want to do, and I'm just getting started. This scholarship means so much to me, and I'm so grateful to have been selected. It definitely gives me more ambition to push on to more projects. 

What kind of work are you excited to make next?

I'm finally able to start digging into animation courses and I'm very excited about it. It's what I came to MCAD for, and beginning to learn and try it out has been really fun. I can't wait to see what the future holds.

What made you choose to come to MCAD?

MCAD has one of the best animation programs, and the fact that it was still fairly close to home in Minnesota was a huge plus. I also toured the campus and felt very welcomed by the friendly community. 

Favorite thing about college life (so far)?

My favorite thing about college thus far has been being surrounded by amazing people who are all passionate about their craft. There is so much skill and creativity, which creates a great environment for working on my own projects. It's really inspiring, and I've also made some really good friendships.
