My name is Haley and I am 18 years old. I was born in Tucson, Arizona, but grew up in Oregon. My primary memories were the childhoods I spent in Bend and Florence. Those were both drastically different environments and stages of my life, but I still treasure them the same. I am fortunate enough to have grown up with my family right beside me.
Ever since I was a young child, I’ve loved drawing and everything artistic. After many years of trial and error, ups and downs in confidence, and consistently trying to grow my skills, I’m now a first-year pursuing an art major. My hope is that I am able to turn my education into a career. I picked up various different interests over the years like music, video games, reading, watching a ridiculous variety of shows and movies, etc., but drawing is the one that has remained the most prominent.
I’ve always been invested in doing the best I possibly can in school, even if that’s met with copious amounts of stress and constant uncertainty in my abilities. But I will continue to work hard, and am excited to see the new skills I can learn and grow.
