My Footprint on the World

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

We all leave a footprint on this earth, far and wide. What does yours look like? I know mine is an ever developing, intricate design of passion, love, and life. I hope to leave behind a mark of kindness, a mark of care, and a mark of effort. I have learned a lot of great lessons in my time at The College of St. Scholastica and in my study abroad program. I have learned to love the Earth more deeply through my involvement in Outdoor Pursuit and becoming a kayaking guide. I have learned to love the art of education thanks to my brilliant professors who have brought such passion, trust, and guidance into the classroom, sharing their wealth of knowledge and perspectives. I have discovered the path meant for me, and I have left behind the one that I thought was the / right / way, through the liberal arts requirements, which allowed me to open my mind and heart to other areas of study. I have learned to love the individuality of humanity and the specific people who surround me through the friendships and experiences I have pursued, especially in England. I have learned to accept myself as a writer and photographer, through the building of my skills and confidence in coursework and beyond. I am so grateful to The College of St. Scholastica. I am heading out into the world with much more than a college degree. I am leaving with a new perspective on my life and the world.

Sunday Vibes

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

I will be spending my day with homework and editing in a little tea shop called Yumchaa in Camden Lock. I have a creative story to write and three sessions worth of photos to edit through. Although this means my day is booked until the evening, I am content, because this is the stuff I love. I have chosen to study and pursue the things I am most passionate about, so, even on my busiest days, I am still fully and utterly happy. And, the sun is shining.

Kawala Times

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

I have had a lot of free time on my hands, not working and all here in the UK, so I have made an effort to find opportunities within the London music scene. With a degree in communication, I can follow many different paths after graduation. As of now, I see myself working in either the film, music, or publishing industries. I have stumbled upon a couple music photography opportunities already here in London, and I most definitely did not pass them up. Last night, I photographed a band called Kawala just past King’s Cross Station, and it was an incredible experience.

Theatre Banquet

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Yesterday was another fun filled day. I spent the afternoon in Superior at the CSS Theatre Banquet. I have had the chance to work with, get to know, and experience my Junior year with some incredible people through my involvement with the CSS Theatre this year. I have gained new skills and experiences, but I have also been forever changed as a person. I have learned a lot about myself and what it means to be an actor. I discovered a new passion, and I am honored to have witnessed the passion and heart of others involved in theatre. This year at the CSS Theatre has meant so much to me, that I was brought to tears while being presented the Director’s Choice Award from Merry Vaughan. Although I may be heading off to London in the fall, the CSS Theatre will forever hold a place in my heart.
