PLE III 2019

“It was incredible to experience an environment where people from all different backgrounds can unite with a shared interest to deeply explore complex ideas and solutions.”

I created an art business selling photography, calligraphy, and graphic design to cultivate my artistic skills. Gradually, my business expanded to where I could build a website, actively manage social media accounts, and devote considerable time creating personalized artistic pieces for my clients. Recently, my new collection of handmade stationery products collects money for “Charity:water”, a nonprofit organization that provides clean drinking water across the world. This year, I’ve also applied my acquired art skills in drawing by designing the covers of our school newspaper as the design editor.
