"When I first came to PCA&D, I was originally going for graphic design. I had no photography experience whatsoever. I loved our foundation year. It gave me a chance to explore different media. I took the introduction to black and white photography class with professor, Christine Welch, and I fell in love with it. Every time we had a new photo project, I was excited to be in the darkroom and see my results. My decision was made. Taking that course was the best thing that happened to me. I wouldn’t be where I am if I had not had the chance to explore!"
