"Land is the best art."
I chose animas because of the small size coming from St Columba. As a student that is more interactive in my learning I thought that the project based learning would really help me to be successful in my education before college. I have a couple goals for my time at Animas that I hope to achieve to become a better human being. I hope to improve my learning skills after high school. I want to be an aerospace engineer. One of my goals is to learn how to make friends this year and to discover my true values and who I really want to be in the future. I wish to greatly improve how I learn and I want to grow relationships with my friends and my teachers.
I love computers so the fact that animals offered digital arts as a class really drew me towards it. I think that animals will offer me more 1 on 1 time with my teachers and will really foster my need for repetition, and hands-on learning. I feel like the small size of the different cohorts will really help me make more friends that I did not have in middle school. I hope to gain more understanding of how the real world works and how relationships are valuable and worth making because before this I have not really wanted to have relationships with many people.
