Getting to spend more time with my fellow art students throughout our senior year–planning our senior shows, giving advice on one another’s work, finalizing our resumes, and reflecting on how far we’ve come since freshman year!
Why Shepherd?
The main reason was for the small town and tight knit community; I love being able to walk down the street and say hi to every stranger I pass! And the art department; I was excited to go to a school with a dark room so I could utilize my skills with film photography, and with popular high tech studio and print equipment for digital work.
After Graduation?
My ultimate dream is to go into photojournalism–I love the idea of getting sent on assignments, shooting something new every day, and using my imagery and relay important information to an audience.
