  • Why did you choose this program?

    Two things I value are art and storytelling. I wanted to find a school where I could expand on my creativity and apply it in a new way. With the GSAS and EART programs, I've had the chance to learn the technical and creative skills necessary to play a part in designing interactive narrative experiences.
  • What is your favorite course at RPI, and why?

    3D Modeling (ARTS 2230) has been my favorite course so far! I'd never created a 3D model before that class, but I was able to create some cool models and learn a new skill!
  • In what on-campus activities are you involved?

    Alpha Omega Epsilon and African Students Association
  • What off-campus experiences have you had?

    During my first year a RPI, I got the chance to participate in an incubator program for beginner game designers at the Tech Valley Game Space in Downtown Troy. It was a fun way to familiarize myself with the game-making process while pushing the limits of my creativity.
  • What is something fun about yourself?

    I opened my own Etsy shop during quarantine.
