I have been passionate about art ever since I was born. I am 16 and go to Fairfax High School and during my 16 years of living I've never stopped thinking about art and how much meaning it has in my life. During my free time, I make illustrations, videos, animations and comics. However, my work is not limited to only 2D, I also decorate cakes. I have been decorating cakes for a while and I know how to use icing including designing cakes with fruits and ornaments.
During elementary to beginning of high school, whenever I got left out from others (whether it be lunch or any activity), I would always draw or watch animations. I never felt left out while drawing, it gave me an escape from reality and I was able to create my own world.
Because art has helped me so much throughout my life, I want others to also experience the impact that art can have. My future goal is to help others with similar experiences as me get through their struggles and find meaning in their lives.
Some skills I have are communication and time management. I work as a cashier in a restaurant and this requires me to communicate with others. At my art academy, I volunteered as a teacher assistant to help little kids draw during summer break. For time management, I make sure to turn in all of my assignments and have uploaded each chapter for my webcomic in reasonable time. After being in a museum environment for Craft Youth Culture, I have a lot of experience and knowledge about exhibitions/museum foundations.
