I am an ambitious first -generation college student currently attending Hostos Community College working towards my associate degree in Digital Design and Animation. My ultimate goal is to earn my master’s in Fine Arts.
Ever since the first grade when all I drew was cats, I dreamed of becoming an artist. It’s a passion that has stayed with me. I became more serious about art in my senior year of high school and decided to pursue a career in the art industry. I began my journey with studying animation because I love of working hard with an ambitious team to achieve a goal bigger than my own. In college, I pinpointed the career path I wanted to take. I decided to pursue a career as a Concept Artist because I want to combine my storytelling skills with my artistic abilities in effort to connect with the world on a deeper level. I am in the process of developing a portfolio to illustrate my interest and skills as an aspiring artist.
I enjoy opportunities that are both non-art and art related because it allows me to see the world from different perspectives and informs my work. As an America Needs You Fellow, I am learning and developing the skills necessary to navigate through the business world and function successfully within it. With America Needs You by my side, I feel more confident in pursuing my career and educational goals.
