During the summers of 2013 and 2014, I was a residential counselor (RC) for a summer camp for gifted and talented teens called Duke TIP (Talent Idenfitication Program). This job always kept me on my toes, but the best part was being able to utilize my creativity to design door decorations, flyers and t-shirts and come up with fun programming for the campers. Some of my favorite activities that I came up with were "DIY Anthropologie-Inspired Twig Necklaces" (featured on the right), "Harry Potter Night" (making homemade butterbeer and cauldron cakes and watching Harry Potter) and "Fondue Night" (making cheese and chocolate fondue).
Working as a Residential Counselor
I've always been incredibly inclined to the arts. Performing arts, visual arts, music...you name it, I did it. I started out with piano, and once I got a taste for the arts, I had an unsatiable curiosity and hunger for more. I ended up picking up violin, theatre, dance, art and choir.
I'm a classically trained violinist, and violin is definitely one of my biggest passions in life. Funnily enough, I highly disliked playing violin at first, but as time went on and I became much better musician, my love of violin also grew. I still play in an chamber ensemble at the University of Miami, and I occasionally teach little kids violin.
My Love of Everything Arts-Related
A face is like a canvas for me to express my creativity.
I leave you with a picture of me getting eaten by a camel in Tangiers, Morocco. Curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to get up and close with the camel for a quality selfie, but then it apparently decided I was really tasty. At least my original goal of getting a quality selfie was fulfilled.
Thank you so much for viewing my booklet! I hope you got a glimpse into my personality, my passions and how curiosity always finds its way into in my day-to-day adventures.
My booklet journey has come to an end.
