I have been a student, mentor, MC, janitor, supervisor, chaperone, and employee at NUA. In all my time there I have always been in love with the Studio. It is always a constant source of stability, support, encouragement and creativity. I will never leave

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the growth of my circle of friends. My personal creative practice. My career.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have to be crazy

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The family I have attained and gotten to grow with for 8 yrs

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy alot of pizza, bike locks, finally get some couches and get a real good printer...

Ways to make it better...
