Year: BFA 4
What inspired you to become an RA: In my first year at CalArts, I remember being so inspired by my own RA that it made me want to be one with everything I am. Watching her be able to create a safe and friendly community was beautiful and I want to be able to continue that. After being an RA for the past school year, I loved being able to take on that leadership role in making residents feel heard, welcomed, and most importantly- like they belonged. The relationships I was able to build with my fellow RA's and residents made it an easy choice to apply and come back as an RA again.
What are your artistic goals while at CalArts and beyond: Over my time at CalArts, I have really secured who I am as an artist- which is essential. My goals circle around the idea of bettering myself as a vocalist, songwriter, and instrumentalist. I also hope to gain skills to better myself when describing myself as an artist to other people and be considered well-spoken. My dream is to be a successful recording artist while working as an artist in the film/tv universe.
Words of Wisdom: Remember to always have time to ground yourself. As artists, it can be really difficult to find time to breath and recollect ourselves. Since we are going, going, going; finding a safe space, an uplifting activity (etc), is eessential to keep you from feeling the CalArts burn out, and can help ease perfectionism.
