Welcome queens of Mogul at LaG!
I am Kelly, a junior majoring in the visual arts and I am very excited to be bringing a hub to LaGuardia to provide an external catharsis for our incredible student body. This year I have found my place in high school and began reaching out to networks that raise upright thinking in a time where we are all processing the world and ourselves. Right now, I am art directing and writing for the Affinity Magazine, juggling 10 periods of art and academic studies, running my own international magazine (The Tiger Bomb), running on my daily $2 iced coffee (Almond milk. No sugar.), and probably singing along to some pop album from 2007.
I grew up with the influences of so many parts of NYC, jumping around from Washington Heights to Chinatown to Midtown to the Lower East Side to Coney Island. I have found that right now, we are all "figuring it out" in some way and that having a supportive, creative space is vital as we are finding our opinions is vital.
Here is the actually important stuff about me:
1) I carry around 5+ shades of red lipstick at all times (for emergencies of course...)
2) I have over 100 playlists in my Spotify playlist archive and I have been following my Spotify Discover (religiously) every Monday.
3) I live for poetry and prose!
4) I have a guilty pleasure for ballads from the early 2000s...
5) I have been keeping sketchbooks and journals since the 7th grade.
6) I speak 2 dialects of Chinese to my family, and I am currently picking up a third!
7) The first band that I followed (ever...) was Paramore and I still have a sweet spot for them. Most people get out of the "It's Not a Phase, Mom!" phase, but I will perpetuate this phase in my heart forever...
8) I am aspiring to be creative director, writer, and visual artist for short films, commercials, and makeup brands.
9) I am very vocal about feminism for Asian Americans and model minority groups, and I hope to continue to bring exposure to our cultures and diversity.
10) I love the Food Network more than most things. <3!
I am bringing Mogul to LaG as a part of my Student Government promise to bring exposure and opportunities to the Fame school. Have a safe and productive LaGuardia day!
