What is your favorite thing about your chosen major?

What is your favorite thing about your college?
I am so grateful for the opportunities I am given at a large public university, while also getting one-on-one attention in the small program I am apart of. Being surrounded by artists who are hungry to learn, grow, and develop is exciting and inspiring.

Every creative choice I make and project I work on is an offering to the one who gave me the gifts I am refining.
What would you like to do after you graduate from college?
After graduation, my plan is to move to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. I am interested in both the performance aspect as well as the creative side of things. I am looking forward to being a part of the fast-moving community, working on new and innovative artistic endeavors.
A word of advice to SCA students who might be considering majoring in fine arts at college:
Go for it! The world needs more artists, and the world definitely needs more Christian artists. If God has placed a passion in your heart for this, trust it and follow it. Artistic expression is a unique mode of worship that God has given us. I am so glad that I chose to study it in college and I now know that this is God’s calling on my life.
