How are you going to celebrate your win?

I'm very thankful to have been chosen for this scholarship, and I suppose I will celebrate in continuing the upward climb! There are definitely moments of discouragement and self-doubt, and things like this are really an encouraging push to keep going.

What kind of work are you excited to make next?

I'm really excited to continue animating in 3D. I've started a really big learning curve this year with Maya. I'm most looking forward to continuing to study character animation and pushing myself to try new techniques. 

What made you choose to come to MCAD?

I chose MCAD because not only did the graduates have some really impressive work, but during a tour, I fell in love with the friendly people and the environment. It really is a great place that facilitates artists.

Favorite thing about college life (so far)?

My favorite thing about college life so far is that there are so many amazing people that are always willing to help you. I'm always asking questions, and the faculty are incredibly helpful. The upperclassmen have also been incredibly kind and will answer any questions I might have as well. I've made a lot of friends this way, and it's so nice to be in such a supportive environment. I hope I can pass on this support to others in the future.
