“I am a dancer/musician, educator, and arts advocate currently beginning my Sophomore year at Muhlenberg College. I encourage creative engagement that welcomes risk-taking, choice-making, and authenticity. Bravery and personal embodiment paired with community creates a better world, and I’m passionate about establishing the practical and logistical programs to channel art-makers’ dreams into an impactful reality. Partnering with Lehigh Valley Arts Council in pursuit of this goal is a pleasure, and I’m excited to see what the future might bring”.

“I am a rising Junior that is majoring in Environmental Studies. The reason why I decided to intern for the Lehigh Valley Arts Council is because of my passion for the arts. Art has always been there for me ever since I can remember. Growing up, I was always drawn to my art teachers. Their classes were like a safe haven for me to express myself and my individuality, which is something that was very hard to do as an emotional child. To me, art is my therapy. It allows me to connect with people in a way that also allows me to be creative and figure myself out. I joined the Lehigh Valley Arts Council because I wanted to bring art experiences to other people who have a hard time fitting in, connecting with people, and/or are trying to figure themselves out”.

“I am a rising junior at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, studying Communication Management and Graphic Design. I have always been involved in arts since I was young, and as an active member of my community I’m always looking to give back to the community that allowed me to find my voice in the arts. As a graphic designer, I’ve been able to work with Lehigh Valley Arts Council on their social media graphics, website design, and even work on creating elements of the Arts Calendar and Newsletter. It’s  been a great experience and allowed me to grow some of my illustration skills”.
