Schoolcraft Connection

My name is Izabella Allie. I am 18 and a college freshman at Schoolcraft. Right now, I am undecided with my major but leaning towards psychology. For now, I’m currently the Photo Editor on “The Schoolcraft Connection.” I’ve enjoyed photography and graphic design from a young age. I even remember buying a used computer with my dad as a little kid. I would go to coffee shops with him to draw, play games and even sometimes write stories that made no sense. Additionally, I would work on my homework which usually consisted of some sort of math. I was never any good at math. In fact, I struggled so much that I relied on special help from tutors. They say there are two types of people in the world, those who are good at English and those who are good at math. I for one seemed to be better at English than math. I never struggled with writing or expressing myself in an artistic way. Art has always been my outlet. It is something that I was naturally good at from the beginning. I didn't need a tutor, special help after school, or even to study. I could just create. I think that's what made me enjoy it most. In high school, I didn't fit in. As I neared the end of my high school days, I even sat alone at lunch, spending time on my computer designing, writing, and watching videos about how to grow my experience in the arts. I heard “You’ll like college so much more!” so many times. I’ll admit, they were right. The college experience has been so much better. It is full of opportunities, new friendships and goals. I look forward to my next 2 years at Schoolcraft.
