Another week and another chance to meet a new classmate! I was wandering the student art galleries and met up to talk with Patricia Avendano. She is a cute, little woman in her second year at CSULB as a Marketing major. This week, we discussed what art has made/shape you into the person you are today. Patricia explained how dance has definitely been her art growing up and still to this day. She said that dance is a mental game for her and her stress reliever and I’m sure that we can all relate to that in one way or another. She explained how dance has helped her become a more confident woman- and not to mention a great hip-hop dancer. Art, in all of its various forms, is a great outlet for people to show the world different versions of themselves. I really enjoyed this question of the week because it involved getting to know the classmate on a deeper and personal level.
