Announcement! The Student Guest Blogger trifecta is complete! Charis, a BA/BFA student in the Communication Design BFA, has thrown her hat into the ring. -Victoria
I’m a second semester senior at Parsons and a first semester senior at Eugene Lang. As a dual degree BA/BFA student, I’m studying Communication Design at Parsons as well as in the writing track of the Literary Studies program at Lang. Yes, things get kind of crazy, but I’ve learned to keep my cool, be very organized, and take things one sip of coffee at a time.
Since I’m from Hong Kong, the one question I get the most often from people who are meeting me for the first time is: “How come you speak English so well?” Short answer: I spent six years in Texas and went to an international school in HK. Hong Kong is an amazing city I’ll always consider home, but over the past three and a half years I’ve come to think of New York as a second home. Two things I love about NYC are the year-round cultural events available (concerts / festivals / musicals / museums) and the vast number of good restaurants waiting to be discovered (I’ve been to at least 8 ramen places and have a personal ranking for each of them). As a result, I like to talk about cool art things and good food.
Last things to know about me: I’m always in front of my computer and I have a secret impossible wish to be internet famous one day.
