My academic goals at New York City College of Technology is to retain and master the knowledge I receive as a student and become able to relay that through my work as a professional. I am fascinated by art, makeup and everything glamorous therefore I am interested in learning about new things and expanding my horizons artistically.

There are many things that go into creating art and how it is interpreted can be subjective. Magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Plus Model Magazine and Essence have influenced my career choice because they are visually appealing and informative. I have always loved to look through these magazines at the ads and try to recreate the makeup looks on models. Since I have been learning about design, I pay more attention to the fonts companies use to advertise their products.

Meanwhile, I am growing as I learn and although, fashion and art are still my passions, the way I want to break into that world becomes more difficult. The choices are unending, it is still difficult to get to where I believe I truly want to be but I am loving every minute of this journey. I will not be discouraged by hard work nor, will I give up on it (my dream) or my self.
