Bio

I am the second child of my family and the only one in college, although the pressure is on me I rather focus on my classes and hobbies. On the exterior I’m serious but once you get to know me I’m a nice person. I am a super invested person that likes to watch anime and listen to Korean pop. Most of my time during high school was enjoy the most that I could before going to college. You become a busy bee entering college but if interested I can recommend something that suits a person’s taste. I was influenced by these two genres to go into graphic design. Moving and creating things into a design until I am satisfied with a final piece. Recently, I was given a tablet to practice drawing as I also draw on paper and sketch. It is a new experience for me as I try to get the hang of it. I am attaining a new skill to benefit myself in the future.
We learn something new every day, that is why I take advantage of going to my classes because at the same time and time is money. I do want to explore other cities if I am given the opportunity for my major. Furthermore, I am a hardworking person give me a task and I will finish it no matter how difficult it is. Being up for a challenge is what makes life interesting, being put to the test.
