"When you walk down a hallway at SCAD and hear someone speaking a different language, there's something beautiful about that. The world is so big, but everyone is connected here. They have a different story, and when they share their story, it makes us think differently and helps us grow as artists."Foon Fu | B.F.A., photography, 2017
