"I chose NC State because of their Arts Studies major and Arts Entrepreneurship program, two programs that aligned well with my interests to continue in the arts through a history and entrepreneurship route. Now, I can proudly say that I understand the arts as an artist, art historian, and arts entrepreneur."
