I have chosen to attend a school of art for a very vast amount of reasons. First of all I enjoy art. It has helped through a lot of tough times in my life. It has been an escape route for me as well as a way to express myself. My troubles can be told to people without mumbling a single word. For years I have always been well noticed for my work.

These counties are Trumbull, Mercer Mahoning and Astrbula. I have always been told since I was very young my talents would get me somewhere, yet at that age I was not aware of the possibilities art had to offer me. And now that my work is getting recognized throughout my area I am realizing that I am destined to use my talents. Little did I know the many fields that were out there waiting.

I think it is very important to have a job that you want to do. Something that you do not dred being a part of every weekday. I am very much in love with art, as I have mentioned it is a major part of me and I am sure by attending the Cleveland Institute of Art I will certainly get the knowledge I need to survive in the art industry.

What better place for me to study art than a city filled with theaters and art galleries. I have been to Cleveland many times since I
