Capstone Project: Forget me not, a 2D animated short film.
Growing up, I spent almost all my free time watching TV, reading storybooks and comics, and leaving my parents thoroughly dumbfounded as to why I could recite 10-minute episodes of Spongebob Squarepants word-for-word but couldn’t pass science or mathematics.
I see life as a series of stories, television shows, and movies, choosing Arts and Humanities as my major to learn how to tell these stories in the best ways possible. I am also pursuing a minor in Psychology and am passionate about integrating discussions about mental health into my work. My capstone is a 2D animated short film about an elderly man reminiscing about his past as he prepares to visit his wife who has dementia. My goal in life is to create content that can make people feel happier with themselves and about the world around them, and I hope to someday create original animated cartoons. I am looking into career paths that involve writing, animating, composing or acting.
I have played tennis since the age of four and wanted to go to cooking school over university, continuing my impressive streak of distressing my parents.
