Bio

During the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic I decided to attend New York City College of Technology Originally for an Associates in a CST Major, but quickly I decided to switch to Communication Design due to lack of interest in the major I was in. I’m currently in my second semester of college where I’m starting my new major and I’m extremely excited! What I’m excited to learn is all the principles and concepts the communication design major can offer. My current state of mind is to work hard and get better each and everyday at the things I love!

My Motto is “When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

My biggest influence for choosing this Major is the Animator Meat Canyon. Meat Canyon currently post videos on the platform YouTube I honestly fell in love with his work. Yes his animation and work is rather crazy but I just love the weirdness his video’s offer! Definitely check him out at this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC91V6D3nkhP89wUb9f_h17g

Moving forward yes he is my inspiration to get into animation and all forms or art!
