What was your most challenging Assignment?

Every assignment has come with a different set of challenges. Thus far at RIT the most challenging assignment for me was one that was based around the concept of family. I was working with a home for intellectually disabled children that live together with staff members as a family. The challenge was finding ways to show the connection between members of the household, what makes them a family.

What do you love about RIT?

RIT has exposed me to a variety of different students and professors who have made impacts on my work and on me as an individual. I am really thankful that RIT gave me the opportunity to study underwater imaging abroad in Bonaire and will hopefully allow me to study environmental sustainability in Peru next spring.
