How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?
“It has been very beneficial to have the ability to talk with professors one-on-one. Building relationships with my professors has even produced a difference in my grades! And building relationships with my professors will become helpful for networking in the future.”
“I have taken multiple art-photography classes. I would say Color Photography with Professor Brennan Probst has been my favorite. I loved how I could turn each assignment into something of my own interest. It was a great class to learn how to critique art and learn from other classmates’ interpretations.”
Opportunities at Carthage
“Here at Carthage, there has been an effort to involve students in many different interests. I have found myself either preparing for my swimming season or involving myself in art competitions and social media contests. I even placed in a semi-final of a ‘Sunset Photography compositions’ which was an unexpected success.”
“I have received scholarships due to my success on the swimming team and also because I moved to Carthage from the United Kingdom.”
Biggest surprise so far
“I felt a great sense of independence when I said goodbye to my parents to come to Carthage. And being able to be involved in anything you want while staying successful in school has surprised me. If you really focus on what your goal is, it will become a reality.”
What would your 8-year-old self think of you now?
“When I was eight, my teachers would tell me that an arts-focused career was too limited, and they discouraged me from going into that path. But I continued to follow my interest in art because I’ve always enjoyed drawing and creating. So my eight-year-old self would be very proud of the fact that I am still pursuing an arts-focused career.”
