WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
Being back on campus for my final semester, I have felt extremely inspired by my surroundings and my peers. I have found that I am most creatively inspired when I am around other creatives.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
I would love to create something with a global reach. Language barriers pose difficulty, but design is universal. I think it would be amazing to have my work viewed around the world.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I love discovering new music. In January 2020, I made a goal to create a new music playlist every month with new artists and songs to broaden my listening. I can proudly say that since then, I have stuck to my goal and haven’t missed a month yet! Over the past 2+ years, I’ve discovered so many amazing artists!
