My name is Mickala and I’m 19 years old. I was born in Queens but raised in Brooklyn for almost all my life. My career goal is to become a storyboard artist for children’s cartoons, but I am also heavily into conceptual fashion and styling. In my spare time I try to be away from home as much as possible because I could never help but feel sluggish and unproductive when I’m on my laptop watching an entire series on my bed. I chose this class due to my interests in social activism regarding gender and sexual identity and how much more we’re beginning to understand it over time. I hope I can have some very meaningful conversations from this class by the end of the semester.
