Q: What inspired you to get involved with art?

A: “I’m also into volleyball since like seventh grade. I also like photography. I do it a lot and something I really enjoy.”
Q: How does art affect your life?
A: “Art has affected my life by always having something that you’re so in to and It’s kind of a therapy, so whenever you’re having a day where you’re just not feeling it, you always know that you can just shut everybody out and go and just do what you love doing.”
