Bio

I applied to college in 2015. I had no idea what I was doing or wanted to do. My mother tried to convince me to pursue my career as a nurse. I said sure, why not after volunteering/interning at a hospital. My first year in college was hopeless. I was witnessing classmates super motivated on their major and very determined to succeed. I had the complete opposite. I had no motivation to become a nurse. So, for the past two years in Kingsborough, I majored in Liberal Arts. For two years, I still could not find my passion for any career. I felt depressed until I took an art class.
I knew ever since when I was young that I was a creative person but I didn’t continue my creativity. I always get deep emotional thoughts at night and after taking an art class, I searched on google for any creative jobs and graphic design was one of them. I no longer felt lost or depressed. I was actually really excited and motivated to learn and begin my major. So, I transferred to City Tech, knowing/experiencing absolutely nothing about the major. And here I am.
My current course of study is Communication Design. My interest began in college when I was taking painting and drawing class. As a kid, I had always love drawing, coloring, dancing, and just being creative. I also enjoy spending my time playing video games and playing around with makeup/skincare. Although I have no experience with this course, I have a huge passion for his major. I’ve never been so excited to learn how to use the programs. I can see myself in the future doing this major. Ideas are always popping in my head but I don’t have the knowledge or experience of the programs.
