I remember that I originally intended to go through the graphic design program, but after the foundation year, based on the friends I made the sensibilities with whom I most resonated, I felt compelled to pursue the fine art program. What I took from my time at PCA&D was to go for what you know! I can't ponder the notion that I'll find my future fortune without reflection on how that message was instilled in me from my years in Lancaster.
