Alumna Feifei Sun, reporter-producer for TIME

Writer Feifei Sun (B.F.A., advertising, 2008) explains how the education and encouragement she received at SCAD helped expand her knowledge of design, photography and art history. The creative versatility she developed has given her a distinct advantage in the fast-paced world of publishing, enabling her to land her first job with Vanity Fair and continue her career with TIME.

"I was pushed to explore what I wanted to do by professors and fellow students who believed in me and made me feel like I could accomplish that at a time when I didn't think I could. [SCAD] ... absolutely helped me land the job that I have today and the life that I have now in New York."
