What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Treat others how you’d like to be treated.
What or who inspires you? My parents for their fearlessness. My husband for his continuous support.
How did you choose your program of study? I have always known I wanted to be an artist (since 6 years old) and have been drawn to shapes, colors and text most of my life. It was an easy decision to choose graphic art as my creative path.
What do you enjoy most about your studies at Harper? The instructors at Harper have been some of the most proficient and competent people I’ve been privileged to learn from.
What advice or tips would you share with someone who’s considering your program of study? Don’t be afraid to ask how or why.

Describe your perfect day. Sunshine, blue skies and soaking up the rays.
What are your plans after Harper? What’s next for you? We shall see...
