"You Should Consider
Community College"

These are the actual words that my high school guidance counselor said when I told her my aspirations of going to Bridgewater State College (now University) to pursue a degree in art.

Instead of taking the advice, I applied (and was accepted) to BSC in the fall of 1996. When that woman essentially told me to lower my expectations, it did quite the opposite in me. It motivated me. And although I’ll never forget that day, I’ve never looked back.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved creativity.
