Art allows me to perceive the world around me in a more extravagant and magical way.
Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?
Cornell AAP offers what feels like a unique and personal experience in an otherwise rigorous setting, I sense it is a good match for me and my personality.
What inspired you to become an artist?
Art allows me to perceive the world around me in a more extravagant and magical way. When stranded, like now in quarantine, art-making helped me escape.
What are your extracurricular interests and how have you incorporated them into your college life?
Film and photography mostly, but I also care about the environment, as well as traveling and experiencing various cultures if I get the chance.
What do you hope to accomplish during your time at AAP and after graduation?
Improve my skills, get feedback, make connections with likeminded people, and hopefully make friends who I will stay close with throughout my life, learn how to balance my love of art with other academics, and explore potential career paths.
