Hello! My name is Miya (my-yuh), my pronouns are she/her and I’m a nineteen year old student here at LCC. I really enjoy playing music, I currently know how to play the drums (still have plenty of room for growth though) and am learning how to play the piano and ukulele. I took a break from music for about a year, so I’m trying to get back in the habit of practicing consistently and getting back to the skill level I was at before the break. Although I don’t do it as often as I should, playing and making music feels very natural to me. I’ve always wanted to jam out with some other people or possibly start a band just to mess around and have fun making music! But since none of my other friends played music, I’ve never found other people to practice with outside of high school band. I actually started out this year majoring in music, but then eventually decided I wanted to start a career in multimedia design instead. I took a few classes in high school to explore this field (AUD 120, and FA 250), which ended up helping me make the decision to change my major this year. Although I love music and plan to continue pursuing it for the rest of my life, I’m so incredibly happy to have made the switch. After one term in multimedia design, I definitely felt like I found where I was supposed to be. I feel so inspired by the skills I’m learning in all my classes and the career opportunities available to me, I don’t know which area to choose! I really enjoy video and audio editing, photography, and digital imaging with Photoshop and Illustrator. Doing anything in these fields would make me happy. I’m really excited and looking forward to interacting with other creative artists focused on multimedia design!
