Bio

My name is Daniel Cruz. I am 20 years old. My major is Communication Design and so far I am enjoying it. The classes are exciting and I’m learning a lot of information. I got introduced to this major because my cousins told me to give it a try. I still don’t know if I’m actually going to do this for the rest of my life but so far I’m enjoying it. I’m interested in things that are creative, wild and visually pleasant to look at. I’m all about being free and doing whatever I feel like doing. That’s what I feel art and design is.
The classes I’ve taken so far have already taught me a lot. This is still only my second year of College so far and I still have a lot to learn. The only thing is that you have to keep learning things yourself. The apps you use keep changing and can have new features and it’s your job to be updated on all these things. Which is great because you keep learning but it can be tiring. My goals as of now is just to keep taking my classes and passing them. I don’t know what I will do in the future. I’m taking things step by step.
