I aspire to be a background painter for television or an environment designer for feature films.

When I was twelve, I watched “Tangled” in a theater for my birthday, and it left me completely spellbound. The breathtakingly gorgeous lantern scene was the most beautiful scene I had ever seen in any movie, animated or otherwise! And the blend of the colors, the dialogues, and the music put together made me feel like I was really there, like I was a part of the story myself. That’s when I knew; I wanted to work in animation.
