What awards or recognition have you received?

Six medals from art competitions and blue ribbons from art shows.

Who or what influences you?

Everything influences me: movies, tv shows, other artists, pop-culture, history, music. 

What do you do to further your success?

I take AP art and I sketch whenever I can to improve my skills.

What are your plans for the future and how are you preparing for it?

I plan to attend Pratt where I want to study graphic design. I’m not sure about the specific career I want to pursue, but whatever it is I want it to include art and creativity.
