Being able to spend time with so many self-driven individuals was very inspiring. To be in the company of people who have that drive is why I chose Cornell and AAP.

Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

I chose Cornell and AAP because it gave me a feeling of home. I am surrounded by so many likeminded people, it is just a pleasure to be around.

What inspired you to become an artist?

Creating art helped me with my journey of self-exploration. The more art I created, the more I learned about myself and I started to understand that there is no end to learning about art. Art became something where it was always evolving and had no boundaries. I think that is what inspired me to become an artist.

What are your extracurricular interests and how have you incorporated them into your college life?

Equestrian riding, gardening, hiking

What do you hope to accomplish during your time at AAP and after graduation?

I hope to find a direction within art that I can pursue and ultimately make a career out of.
