How are you going to celebrate your win?

I am going to celebrate by grabbing an ice cold coffee and going out to eat with my amazing family.

What kind of work are you excited to make next?

I am excited to make some personal, self-guided work in my Ideation and Process class in the upcoming weeks. I am also looking forward to making more experimental projects that can inform my design work, including collage, decorative wood pieces, 3D paper sculptures, and felt pennants!

What made you choose to come to MCAD?

I chose to come to MCAD because of all the great design resources and facilities it has to offer along with all the opportunities they highlight for students.

Favorite thing about college life (so far)?

My favorite thing about college has been making connections in and around the cities with a variety of people—both artists and non-artists alike. I also really look forward to the MCAD Art Sale—my favorite time of the year.
