Time Lapsed Art Buy Artwork Commissions STEM in Art STEM in Art These works are inspired by my STEM passions within chemistry, biology, physiology, and genetics. They also contain important messages related to the healthcare field: medicine, behavioral health, public health, and my future profession: 🦷 dentistry 🦷 Painting my school building! STEM in Art I decided to paint scenes of my school building! The Va gelos Education Center (also known to me as VEC), is not just a building where I go to lecture and study: it's a combination of the four elements of nature; it's a concert hall; it's a mural; it's a reservoir for creativity--where knowledge and conversations overlap and bring about meaningful growth :) Brunoscapes Honored to announce that I am officially selling artwork via the The Brown University Bookstore ! "Brunoscapes" are renditions of memorable locations at Brown, each associated with specific memories, feelings, and emotions of my undergraduate experience! Brunoscapes Dreams Dreams These dreamscapes and imaginary lands are rendered spontaneously without any prior planning, sketching, or reference photos. Like lucid dreaming, I let go of my inhibitions and allow my imagination to fabricate the landscape around me as I revel in the unconstrained fields of my mind and the different variations of creativity it can manifest. Snapshots in... Snapshots in Time The world as I see it is composed of snapshots of meaningful places, objects, and people that have emotional significance to me, no matter if they are happy, funny, sad, or tragic. I capture these moments in memory so that I can keep them with me forever, etch them forever in the molecular gaps between the threading of my canvas or paper. Without them, I wouldn't be Bree Zhang. Ordinary Meets... Ordinary Meets Unordinary These pieces retain the structural integrity of the ordinary world but transcend the constraints of reality. Some works are simply funny humorous, some are bizarre and outlandish, some are inspirational, some may be sad or frightening. Social Commentary Social Commentary My social commentary functions as activism and investigation within the intersectionalities of race, gender, sexuality, neurodiversity. It ranges from calling us to take voting action, to raising awareness about Anti-Asian Hate, to encouraging us to stand in solidarity against COVID-19, to analyzing female idealizations and expectations in relation to objectification, clothing, body image, and sexual violence. Tributes to Love Art and Music Combination Pieces Returning Home Family Love These 4 pieces are made together with my guzheng composition dedicated to my grandmother, called "Returning Home ." Each piece shows a treasured moment with my grandmother: feeding fish above a pond in my hometown, blowing candles during my birthday, laughing together, and reuniting with her after 7 years of separation. Go to My Compositions for the song and a more detailed description of my relationship with my grandmother. A Mother's Love This series of 12 art pieces (paired with my music composition “A Mother’s Love ”) is a tribute to my mother and all the other beautiful mothers in this world who have given us irreplaceable support, wisdom, care, and love since the day we were born, from changing our diapers, to teaching us how to walk, to comforting us when we are sad, to cheering on our successes, to supporting us even when we leave home to explore the world. No matter how old I become, I will always keep my mother in my heart and remember all the sacrifices and hardships she endured to provide me opportunities to grow, learn, and love. I love you 妈妈. 🥰 Daydreams (listen on Spotify ) Identity Search Search for Identity Art and Music Combination Pieces These pieces comprise the art background to my song, Daydreams (see music video ), which details my insecurities and search for identity. "Daydreams" goes hand-in-hand with my art piece below, "The Sides of Me Your Don't See." To the girl in this song (Me Of the Past), she would’ve never imagined herself living the life featured at the end of this song, so it’s just yet another “daydream," a beautiful life.. But someday, it will come true. ❤️ The Sides of Me You Don't See This 3-D interactive work, made in conjunction with Daydreams, explores my struggle to come to terms with my Chinese identity .

Integrating Dental & Medical Curricula Other Advocacy Infographics Patient Education Infographics! Bree's Dental Infographics How I Integrate Oral Health within Columbia's Medical Curriculum At Columbia Dental, my first 18 months of dental school is with the medical school, in which we share the same classroom and lab with medical students. While I'm so grateful to have the chance to learn about the whole body, I also feel that it's important for medical students to have an understanding of oral health! Oral disease is a silent epidemic: tooth decay is the most common disease in the world, periodontitis is number 6 in the world, and both conditions greatly affect, predispose, or exacerbate other health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, covid-19, cancer, and even Alzheimer's. However, the mouth has been historically neglected in a lot of conversations on health, partially because of the segregated dental and medical system (in schools, hospital systems, and insurance policies). Many medical students learn more about the brain, the skin, and the rest of the body , but they tend to know less about the mouth when it’s one of the most important windows and gateways to our physical and mental health. This is how and why I started making infographics connecting the contents I made in this class with public health concepts, because--after all, health cannot be achieved without taking on a public health lens!

- Why Dentistry | Bree Zhang
Why Dentistry? I decided to make an artwork to answer the question Watch my TedXTalk for a more personal version of the story To me, dentistry is like painting an artwork or composing a guzheng 古筝 song: both require sensitivity of touch, creative visualization, and the ability to sculpt not just the intricate details but also the larger symphony of what our mouth’s blank canvas can become: the smile. 😁 Dental art is also a science. It requires a thorough understanding of how dentistry’s “paints” react, solidify, and set according to different temperatures, moisture levels, time frames and mixtures, whether it is the chemical reaction of alginate (drawn as d-mannuronic acid and l-guluronic acid ), or the blue-light stimulated 3d polymerization of composite resin in restorative fillings. That's when my organic and inorganic chemistry knowledge 🧪 merges with my love for biology🧬 , from the aromatic ring in lidocaine improving lipid solubility, to fluoride-assisted remineralization of enamel (depicted as Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 +2F− → Ca10(PO4)6(F)2 + 2OH− ). One of my favorite “biologies” is microbiology. 🦠 The oral cavity is an entryway, living environment, and source of replication for millions of microbes (I’ve drawn a few: SARS COV-2, HIV, E. Coli, Pneumococcus, Diphtheria, Tetanus, etc ), some of which have sparked major epidemics and pandemics. This oral-systemic link is where my interest in science “flows” into the heart and lungs of my passion for public health. 🏥 I’ve seen how the mouth is often the first place to detect disease, cancers, and immune system dysfunction; how poor oral health is linked with heart disease, diabetes, COVID-19, Alzheimer's, and other synergistic diseases rooted in socioeconomic circumstances. 😷 Given that dental decay is the most common disease in the world, and that cumulative national costs 💵 for dental treatment in many countries are higher than those for cancers and heart disease, I hope to be advocating for policies that not only increase upstream prevention and integration (depicted by superior vena cava flowing up to globe ) but also prioritize resource conservation and our fragile relationship with Planet Earth. 🌎 Public health cannot be improved without improving oral health, but the “heart” 💗 (aortic artery flowing upwards in "Why Dentistry" artwork) of our health is also connected to our brain, which is where my love for psychology comes into the picture. 🧠 Our mental health influences oral health through biological channels (systemic inflammation and hormonal imbalance) and psychosocial channels (motivation, social habits, dental fear and anxiety). Meanwhile, our oral health reciprocally affects our mental health by impacting our ability to eat, talk, work, sleep, and smile: a key to confidence, identity, and social mobility. As a dentist, I hope to use tools of psychology to restructure phobias and integrate art and music therapy into dental settings--returning full circle to my favorite multi-colored “hues'' and “melodies.” 🎨🎵 The dental field is growing at such a fast rate. With a passion for teaching 📚, I hope shape the dental curriculum so that cultural competency is not just a strength but a fundamental core principle. So that mental-health informed dental care is always built from acknowledging social determinants of health. So that we can work collaboratively with all disciplines to tackle the global burden of oral disease. So when people ask me “why do you want to be a dentist?” I say that “not just a dentist but an oral health physician 🩺, an oral health advocate 💪, and an oral health educator 📖." And who knows--maybe I’ll be adding more pieces to my “why dentistry” painting in four years. About Me as an NHSC Scholar On September 8th, I received my official award letter from the National Health Corps Scholarship!! The National Health Corps Scholarship provides financial support for full-time enrollment in an eligible primary care health professions degree training program between 2 yrs and up to 4 school years, covering tuition, reasonable educational costs, and monthly stipends for living expenses. After graduation, scholars devote time practicing in a HPSA (health professional shortage area) for the years they receive the scholarship. I am very blessed for this unique opportunity. Dental disease is a neglected epidemic: more than 1/3 of low-income adults avoid smiling and face employment difficulties due to the state of their teeth. Dental pain has been reported to affect up to 30% of adults, which also impacts their ability to sleep, eat, work, and take care of their children. Right now, about 49 million Americans live in communities that have been designated dental professional shortage areas. It’s so important to address and fix the geographical shortages of dental providers, BUT we must also think about the roots of the problem: a segregated healthcare system, a treatment over prevention culture, policies that perpetuate other social disparities in education, food access, & more. Beyond just practicing in a HPSA, I hope to continue pushing for increased dental access and prevention/education on the upstream policy level.

Time Lapse Tutorials Art Videos by Bree Zhang Time Lapse Digital Drawings Doggies at the Dental Office! Featuring Lulu and Olive, the comfort dogs at my dental office, the Dental Associates of Rhode Island, who make our office a welcoming home and help alleviate patient fear and anxiety! <3 Olive and Tallulah were rescued from Little Rhody Rescue, a nonprofit dog rescue organization striving to find safe homes for neglected and underprivileged dogs. Olive and Tallulah have been with the DARI family since 2018, comforting patients in the office during dental appointments. They Say Humans Taste Like Beef This artwork is a social commentary that imagines an alternate parallel universe where human and animal relations are flipped, where humans are raised like cattle and their body parts eaten for dinner under romantic starlight. The timelapse can be accessed at the very end of the video after the cow conversation finishes. India Point Park Whenever I walk down to India Point Park in Providence, RI, I am mesmerized by the quiet beauty held within the stillness of water, especially during the winter when snowy white seems to blend into the sky. It brings me back to an old dream that inspired my first oil painting in 2016, where I was sitting along the edge of a dock, staring out at an expanse of a frozen lake and a red forest laden in white snow. 5 years later in 2021, I am reflecting on that dream: both the feeling of loneliness that comes from being in your own thoughts and the feeling of calm contentment as I watch the birds that I am not alone right now. The red within me is all around me--if I only take the time to look. I'll Still be Painting I was inspired to make this piece after re-watching Howl’s Moving Castle. This artwork is an oath to myself to always be an artist, whether I’m 19 years old or 91 years old. After all, there’s something beautiful and powerful about art for all ages, not only functioning physiologically to improve neurologic mechanisms such as sensory-motor integration, abstraction, and eye-hand coordination, but also guiding identity formation, allowing us to express our inner thoughts, emotions, feelings and values, from facing fears and insecurities, to capturing moments of love and happiness, to exploring ourselves and the world around us. Even when I grow old and lose my physical capabilities, I hope to retain a youthful mind and a spirit of an artist, just as Sophie did in Howl’s Moving Castle :) Imagined City In this artwork, I crafted this city and its inhabitants without references, drawing random buildings and structures as I saw fit. I let the flow of my imagination guide my pen in a direction I had no idea where I'd end up, in the same way as the girl who lets her imagination take her away to a faraway place she yearns for. This piece is actually made in conjunction with a book I am currently working on, “The Nameless Novel’s Secret.” Thus, the artwork features elements and symbols of this novel, which will make sense as the plot unfolds and unravels.

- My Music Story | Bree Zhang
Music Bio - Bree Zhang My Guzheng Story How it all began... When I was 5 years old, I heard beautiful plucking sounds coming from a next door classroom. Discovering that the music was produced by the guzheng 古筝, I begged my mother to let me learn how to play. Unfortunately, I was too young at the time to be accepted by the teacher, Yang Yi 杨艺, so I eagerly waited for three years and finally got the chance to learn at 8 years old. L ittle did I know that 古筝 would become one of the most formative parts of my life. With any instrument, no one starts out a master. Sometimes I practiced a lot. Other times, I got frustrated and didn't practice, leading my mom to sign me up for performances, which often forced me to practice since I didn't want to embarrass myself onstage. My teacher was wonderful. High expectations yet so caring and kind. Slowly, I improved. As clumsy plucking strung together, my performances locations gradually improved from cramped local churches to concert halls. As I learned about each song's history, culture, symbols, and emotions, I learned how to express myself. My 古筝 became a safe space where I had control and agency over each note, where I could de-stress and release emotions. Local Church 2011 Young Musician's Showcase Grand Prize Showcase Carnegie Hall 2015 Music From China Youth Orchestra In 7th grade, I joined Music From China Youth Orchestra (MCFYO). My time at the orchestra was marked by a series of firsts. It was my first time playing under a conductor, Wang Guowei 王国维. My first time being exposed to so many Chinese instruments, such as the Erhu 二胡, Yangqin 扬琴, Liuqin 刘琴, Zhongruan 中阮, Dizi 笛子, and Hulusi 葫芦丝, all with their own quirks and sound qualities. ( 二胡 is like a two stringed fiddle, 扬琴 is a hammered dulcimer, 葫芦丝 is like a recorder made from a gourd). Best of all, it was my first time meeting a community who were all passionate about Chinese music and their culture. MFCYO Carnegie Hall 2014 Teaching the Guzheng 古筝 In 2014 of my freshman year in high school, I co-founded a 古筝 class at Huaxia Bridgewater Chinese School with Joyce Lu. Being a first-time teacher, I went through rough waters, but the first times always do--that's what's special about them. Teaching is like taking what you know and translating it into 20 different languages . It's difficult when your students get frustrated or don't practice ( haha now I understand my teacher's pain ), but it's so rewarding see that spark in my students' eyes when they master a skill . Eventually, I got to bring my students to perform in places like the Somerville Heritage Festival and Bridgewater Rehabilitation Center. Even though I do not teach anymore (my mother has taken over the class), I still stay in contact with my students. Each year, we have an annual New Years Potluck event where all my old students (and their parents) gather at my house to eat, celebrate, and catch up. We also hold a performance in which everyone plays a 古筝 song they have been learning so we can see each other's improvement over the years. I always tend to premiere my new compositions on this day :) Bridgewater Rehabilitation Center 2015 6th Annual Potluck Gathering 2020 How I Started Composing In 2016 of my sophomore year in high-school, I took AP Music Theory. This class, combined with my experience in Music from China Youth Orchestra, jump-started my interest in music composition. Exposed to different time signatures, chord progressions, scales, music styles, and instrument capabilities of both eastern and western music, I decided to try composing my own song for MFCYO. My first song was called "Journey " and the whole composing process was a long journey. I learned to understand the limitations of each instrument, balance and maximize the each performers' dynamic capabilities, and convert western score to Chinese numerical notation. I am thankful for my conductor (Wang Guowei) who wholeheartedly support me. "Journey," which debuted in Drew University June 3rd, 2017. The next year, I composed another orchestral song "Dancing in Snowflakes " which debuted in Drew University during my final concert on June 2nd, 2018. Both songs mix western elements with traditional Chinese elements, combining not only two different styles but also two cultures. The summer of 2017, I was also inspired to compose a 古筝 piece, "Returning Home " dedicated to my grandma. I used this song to compete in Central China Television’s National Talent Competition in Beijing and won 4th place, and I also used my piece to win Gold Prize in the Sinovision Television (Cable Channel 73) Competition: the first time since the competition started in 2010 that a non-western instrument was able to obtain Gold in the Teen’s 14-18 age group. In 2018, I decided to try combining vocals with 古筝 (which functions almost like a guitar), culminating in a project called “In Ten Years ” about college rejection (ironic, yes, I know, but it was composed before I discovered I got into Brown ). I also began to cover modern pop songs such as “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever ” with guzheng. Drew University 2017 Sinovision Television Teen Talent Competition 2017 "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" Cover 2018 College, Spotify, and More! At Brown, I composed 2 new 古筝 songs, "Metamorphosis " (2020) and "Growing Up " (2021), both of which reflect on my growth as an individual over the years. I also have been looking to integrate more western classical elements and contemporary jazz and blues elements into my music, which led me to take "Theory of Tonal Music" and "Jazz and Pop Harmony" at Brown. During the Spring semester 2020, I started an independent study with Professor Wang Lu to work on my compositions, playing around with jazz chords, altering the tonality of the instrument, exploring new 古筝 sounds such as scratching or hitting or swiping. Later that year, I wrote another song combining vocals with guzheng, "Daydreams " which reflects on my struggle with my identity and culture. This song, in conjunction with my art piece "The Sides of Me You Don't See ," were formative in my journey navigating what it means to be Asian American and Chinese American. Read my full story at My Asian Identity . Metamorphosis 2020, Spotify Daydreams 2020, Spotify Trying out Improv! During my final semester at Brown, using what I learned from Jazz and Pop Harmony and Professor Wang's independent study, I joined MEME ensemble, where I learned to let go of my anxiety of perfecting music and enjoy the process of creating music. Improv is like sketching a rough draft of an idea with a permanent marker and unapologetically owning every single mark and every empty space because these are all parts of the music-making process. Improv gave me comfort in forming ideas but never rehashing or going back because no creation is a mistake, and no mistakes are intentional or unintentional because every note is stuck in a raw, messy, unfiltered, yet beautiful in-between. Most importantly, it erases the distance between the audience and me because the audience is also part of the music-making and storytelling process—and together we have fun. At the 2022 Senior Talent Show, I was able to explore this collaborative improvisation for the last time at Brown. Together with the audience, we played 2 games: Game 1: Opposites Attract, inspired by “MEME ensemble” The audience suggested 2 random emotions (“sad” and “wondrous relief”) that I would express on the guzheng. Then two audience members volunteered to say “sad” and “wondrous relief” back and forth, controlling the time I played these emotions. Game 2: Improv Storytelling Members of the audience shouted out 3 random words, and my task was to spin together a story on the spot using these 3 words: Blueno, Poono, and guzheng.

Guzheng is an ancient Chinese instrument with more than 2,500 years of history. It has twenty-one strings and movable bridges that enable the musician to change scales. The melody is played on the right side of the bridge; the left side is normally reserved for vibratos, slides, and other ornamentations to the music. Playing requires finger picks that are wrapped with tape around the tips of the fingers. Some techniques include tremolo, arpeggios, glissandos, vibratos, and harmonics. The music is read in simplified numerical notation.

I developed COVID-19: Global Lesson for a Global Profession " (Module 7) during the last year of undergrad while I was the Pre-dental Society President at Brown University under the mentorship of Dr. Brittany Seymour, the Global Health Discipline Director at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, who is the lead author of the entire Global Health Starter Kit. Global Health Starte Kit Co-author Anterior Crossbite Research Anterior Crossbite + Bottle Feeding Research From 2017 to 2020, I conducted research on early correction of anterior crossbite through bottle feeding. Early correction, initiated at least after age 3 when a fixed or removable appliance can be worn, encouraging proper development of the maxilla and mandible. Our initial Case Study, published in the Journal of Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry , describes an instance of exceptionally early intervention of a bottle-fed 10-month-old boy without use of an appliance. Correction was achieved in 5 months by changing the bottle position to a counterbalancing feeding angle. This technique needs further investigation but has potential to reduce future costly orthodontic procedures, improving psychophysiological development. Although we got IRB approval to start the next step of research to expand our study to a much larger sample size, we were unable to continue this project due to the pandemic. I hope to continue it in dental school. Brown Pre-dental Society Initiatives Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease of children. Over the pandemic, I started an initiative “Oral Health Education for Children” teaching local elementary schoolers about the importance of oral health, proper oral hygiene & dietary habits, and fluoride benefits through virtual games like kahoot and jeopardy. Concurrently, I was working with children and conducting research on praise at the Causality and Mind Lab. Praise is important in motivating children to maintain good oral hygiene and diet, so my research was informative in how I developed and delivered presentations to children. During my last semester at Brown, when I handed this project off to our Community Service Chair, I was delighted to see that we were finally able to present in-person at schools, and even set up tables at their science fairs! Oral Health for Children Oral Health Education for Children Prevention is just as important for our elderly, whose oral health often goes unnoticed and uncared for. In 2019, I developed oral hygiene training sessions to be delivered to caretakers at nursing homes. Communicating with Dr. Zwethckenbaum, Director of RI Dept Oral Health, I worked on a powerpoint on causes of gum disease & tooth decay, proper set-up and maintenance of teeth, dentures and partials, dealing with residents with dementia, parkinsons and paralysis, and identifying 10 types of oral pathologies. Once Brown pre-dental society members were trained to give presentations, we divided into working groups and obtained floss, toothbrush, and toothpaste donations from local offices. With the help of Adderlin Bailey, Dental Program Manager of Carelink Collaborative, we were put in contact with 46 nursing homes and worked in groups to present our content.

- Art and Music Meet Dentistry | Bree Zhang
Music & Dentistry Art & Dentistry Art and Music Meet Dentistry Bringing Music into Dentistry In 2019, I started providing music therapy to patients in the RI Hospital Cancer Center. Through my guzheng, I realized the power of music as a common language to connect us, heal us, bring out stories and memories, soothe our fears. I wanted to bring music therapy into the dental field. Dental fear (or dental anxiety) affects approximately 36% of the population, especially prevalent in trauma victims or survivors of domestic violence, and is a reason why millions of Americans avoid the dentist . Yet delaying dental care results in the progression of dental disease that requires more invasive and painful treatments, furthering the cycle of dental trauma. RI Hospital Healing Through Harmony Volunteer Many suffering severe dental fear or anxiety require nitrous oxide or general anesthesia in order to undergo a procedure. I believed music could function as a low cost alternative, so I implemented music therapy at the Dental Associates of Rhode Island , an office I had been working at as a Practice Coordinator/Dental Assistant. "Thursday Tunes" on the Guzheng Every Thursday, at the beginning and end of the hour, I played the guzheng 古筝, the 21-stringed Chinese harp, as patients entered the waiting rooms, incorporating elements of music therapy such as receptive intervention, re-creation, improvisation, and composition. Wireless Headphones, Customizable Playlists I set up an office Spotify account and wireless bluetooth noise-canceling headphones for each operating room. Rather than listening to a preset music playlist, patients had could select any songs they wanted through Spotify, or connect their own phone to the bluetooth headphones. Bringing Art Into Dentistry One day while dental assisting, I met a young girl who needed a root canal. Since she couldn’t understand English, I drew out the root canal procedure for her. I broke down the procedure into 4 simple steps, using arrows, check marks or x-marks, and happy/sad faces to convey meaning. If a picture is worth a thousand words, I believe a drawing can be worth a million. You can illustrate processes through time, distill complex pictures into simple components, combine elements while highlighting the most important parts. You can communicate across language barriers to increase health literacy and decrease dental anxiety, particularly for stigmatized procedures like root canals. It’s not always convenient to draw the full process of a root canal. When I searched online for short video animations, I discovered that these animations were all longer than 1 minute or were too hyperrealistic. Thus, I decided to create my own animation , distilled down into a simple digestible form—all under 30 seconds. This video is the first of my series of hand-drawn dental education animations, focused on being easy to visualize and understand even without sound. Art & Dentistry After making this video, I also became inspired to create short educational infographics on other dental topics (cavities, plaque, gum disease, fillings, pregnancy) for patients and their families at the Dental Associates of Rhode Island, trying to distill dental education into short bite-sized pieces of information. Below is a sneak peek, but check out my " Infographics " page to see the whole repertoire!

Intro Teaching Event Planning Art Music Dentistry Contact Me About Me Introduction Hi I'm Bree, she/hers)! I graduated from Brown, receiving a degree in Psychology (ScB) with Honors, and I am pursuing a DDS at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine--read about my dental journey here ! My favorite animal (coincidentally my zodiac animal) is the dragon and I am the HUGEST fan of Studio Ghibili movies (Princess Mononoke is my <3). In my free time, I enjoy playing the guzheng ( 古筝), oil painting and digital painting, composing music, writing short stories, going on morning runs, learning Tiktok shuffles, and trying new sports like ice skating, frisbee, and ballroom dancing! Things I Like to Do! Teaching Teaching There's something magical about giving someone your knowledge and watching the crazily amazing things they do with it. I first fell in love with teaching in 2014 when I co-founded a guzheng class for children. Later, in college, I found an opportunity to work as a college counselor and essay editor with Princetonow Education Services, advising and helping students develop their passions. However, I always loved working with children. It's like planting a seed and watching it take root and grow up. So I joined a developmental psychology lab, Causality and Mind Lab at Brown, studying how children think, learn, and interact with the world. This past April, I finally finished my senior thesis on "Effects of Different Praise on Children's Motivation"!🦷 Event Planning & Student Government They say you'll forget your grades, but you won't forget your people. During my time at Brown, being Co-President of the Class of 2022 and a Orientation Leader gave me a wonderful and humbling opportunity toe be a "Matchmaker" to create spaces and chances for new friendships and relationships 👀 to form (favorite memories include apple picking, ice skating, Gala, and the senior organ concert)! Now, at Columbia, I am the President of the Class of 2026 and work to continue to foster connections while communicating with deans and admin to best support our class! Event Planning Art To me, art is dreaming of weird things. Art is believing in yourself when no one else does. Art is reflecting on your tragedies and successes. Art is growing as a human. Art is confusing and messy and befuddling. Art is harsh and unforgiving but it can be comforting and lovely. Art is cool!
