Hometown:
Detroit, Michigan

How did you decide on RCAH?
I decided on RCAH because I didn't want to do just Studio Arts; I wanted to study arts and humanities as well because I also wanted to learn about different ethnic groups and cultures that relate to art.

What are your academic interests?
My academic interests are graphic design and Japanese.

What are your favorite aspects of the RCAH experience?
My favorite aspects of the RCAH experience are the small classroom sizes and the relationships with RCAH professors. Since Michigan State is a big university I wanted classes that were small so I can connect with the students and the professors, and with RCAH this definitely fits very well. The biggest class size is 20 people and it can be as small as five people. I believe that you learn better in a small classroom setting. I love the RCAH professors because they take the time to get to know you as a student. I have good relationships with my RCAH professors, and for some of them I can call them anytime and ask them anything. They also assist me with classes that are out in the rest of the university. 

What are your future plans?
My future plan is to be a graphic designer at a gaming company or business. Then, one day, I want to own my own business.

What are your hobbies and interests within and outside of RCAH?
My hobbies and interests are figure skating, traveling, video games, shopping, camping, and painting.

Have you ever taken part in Study Abroad/Study Away at MSU?
During my Junior year for the summer I plan to study abroad in Japan or Italy.
