August 16th 2014 marks the day that I became a college graduate! Obtaining my BFA in Photography and Imaging from Art Center College of Design! I was never sure if school was something that I would pursue after High School, considering the fact the D’s should have stood for day dreamer. But, once I found Art Center all my day dreams turned to reality. I remember checking the mail and reaching in to find my acceptance letter…I ran back home so quickly and shredded that envelope to get to the substance inside and let out a scream so loud I might as well set off some car alarms! It was all I ever wanted at that point…little did I know what I was in for! Countless sleepless nights trying to meet dead lines, getting marked down if my tape wasn’t cut straight, classes that made me want to gouache my eyes out, and RESHOOT RESHOOT RESHOOT! There were times where I really contemplated if I had what it took to be a photographer. I toughed it out though. I got through the hardest of nights and most brutal crits and you know what…it was all worth it in the end. I wouldn’t be where I was today without every single experience AC had given me. I met some amazingly talented people, life long friends, and had some incredible instructors. I wouldn’t have changed it for the world. I had an experience most of people will not have in their life time and it was the best thing that could have ever happened. Because without the love and support of my friends and family I couldn’t have done it. I had set goals for myself from day one and I did everything it took to get this point. I went to the best school for me and learned how to survive in this concrete jungle and I’m ready for the next chapter in my life! Bring it on world!
