Ringling College of Art and DesignStaunton, VA
One aspect of myself that I love is my passion for growth and my willingness to take on the challenges that follow. Any situation in which sets a struggle for me, my response isn't to give up it’s to tackle the problem head-on. For example, I finally played a game of checkers with a teacher at school (instead of my sisters, who could never beat me), and I lost each time. For me, it was way more fun to lose than to win all the time because of the challenge. Ever since I decided to download a checkers app so I could practice my skills. A positive outcome of this is I have a lot of patience, and if I ever get bored I just have to try something new. It’s also why working in other mediums of art is so enjoyable, having the change in creative expressions challenges my mind. Over my time taking Computer Animation (3D) virtually with Ringling’s PreCollege, I was highly challenged by the workload. I for one had to learn a whole new software. Secondly, I had to animate and use 3D aspects (something I had never done). With animation, there is a lot of trial and error. It's all about experimentation- and with that comes “failure,” therefore, challenge. I live this about animation, and that's why I want to pursue it, and it's one of the many reasons this career fits my personality.
