First year at SCAD:

"While I was a student at SCAD, I had the honor and privilege to work under professors who excelled in the field of graphic design. Being born and raised in a different culture with a different set of values, the university experience at SCAD was a great one. It inspired me to work on a path of sharing my knowledge and bringing out the best in the students I teach.

"As Albert Einstein said, 'It is the supreme art of a teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.' I make sure that my journey as an educator helps me to put these words into practice."
