Why are you studying film/television?

"I always knew that my major was going to be something arts related, and I realized I wanted to study Film/TV at 14. I had tried everything up until that point, like music, piano, singing, painting, dance. But nothing really felt right. Then one summer, my mom was like, do you want to try this summer film course? And from the first class, I was like, this is it. I was fully immersed, and that’s when I knew what I wanted to do."

What objects in your dorm represent your identity or home life?

"I have this one snow globe of Greece. I also have a movie poster of Fight Club, I really liked that movie, and it's one of my dad's favorites. I have two posters of Freddie Mercury because he’s my ultimate, all-time favorite artist. He represents everything that I believe in with being an artist, being a good person, being creative. In times where I'm feeling down, seeing him reminds me that like anyone can go through hardships and get over them, and I just listen to a song, and I feel okay."

"I'm not really finding the correct motivation. I think when I was in high school, my motivation was to get in to college. Now that I'm here, and my parents aren't, it's like, wait, who am I doing this for? Not to say I do it for them, but they are important figures to me. And I know, inherently, it is for me. But sometimes I find it hard to get up in the morning, and just excel. Talking to people helps because it's always good to hear someone's perspective; even if it's not what I want to hear, it'll be helpful in one way or another."

College can be hardStudent Wellbeing provides support for Boston University students with resources, like the one below:

"Student Wellbeing is delighted to be partnering with Undergraduate Affairs and the BU Hub to bring a new cocurricular course to life.  This Hub cocurricular (HUB CC 127) is designed especially for first-year students... Students will have the opportunity to reflect on and talk about their experiences at BU in real-time with their peers, specifically how they’re finding their way in the classrooms, residence halls, dining halls, labs, social spaces and more!"
