Hello Pratt

I can hardly contain myself. I am so excited to start school at Pratt! (Probably the most excited I have ever been for school!)
Today began with orientation where they provided us with food and we met the department chair for a meet and greet of the department. I feel so lucky to be accepted into such an elite group that is the Digital MFA program of only 50 accepted students. Everyone here is incredibly friendly and I got the opportunity to meet many new students. The school is so dope. Everything an artist could ever wish for and the campus itself 25 acre escape from the city that features amazing work throughout the campus. This is one of my favorite pieces and in my opinion the most striking, which is entitled "Leucantha" by Philip Grausman. I feel like the face is so striking that you could never forget this piece.

I am so excited and hope to write much more soon, but for now I am enjoying taking in everything that Brooklyn has to offer.
I can safely say that coming here and being at Pratt is something I have longed to do for so long and I am so greatful to my family and friends for helping me along my journey and always being there for me, because coming here is one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my life and I can't wait for the amazing experiences that awaits!
