My name is Karen Ensaldo Clara and I am interested in Graphic Design. This is my second semester in City Tech and I liked it so far. I love to draw even though I’m not a great artist but that is why I practice everyday.  I enjoy taking photos and hanging with my friends but what I most enjoy is to sleep at least nine hours. I am so happy to be in this class and learn a lot  from the professor and from my classmates.

I’m interested in art mostly any kind. But if it will have to come down to one it will be abstract art. The different combinations of shapes and colors really bring me in. Interested in music as well. The piano is my main instrument I play from time to time trying to improve my skills. Another thing I’m interested is coding, I like making websites of different things but need to learn the more complex things. And also soccer is a other interest of mine.
