Drawing is a passion of mine as you have noticed. I think that drawing shows my talented side along with my creativity. I had drawn this poster last year for the leading ladies program, where you had to run for mayor of your town and have a campaign. It was an event held by Ms. Hafner during school hours in the library. Many women from different places on the East coast (who help their community), came to lead us the right direction into becoming "Leading Ladies". Showing us that women can be in charge and help their community into being all that it can be. In our speech we had to talk about saving the earth, global warming and how we can make the earth a better place. This event opened my eyes to seeing how much of a difference one person can make on the world. (Literally). It also opened my eyes to how things have changed positively and how fortunate women are today. Being able to be a "Leading Lady" is a great opportunity to all the ladies, especially when women were once forbidden to vote and didn't have a choice or a say. Anything positive can help the world. Even simple things like turning the light off when your leaving the room, turning the water on and off as you brush your teeth, and most importantly recycling. I believe in global warming and also believe in keeping the earth in great conditions by doing everyday things a little differently. I believe it will most definitely be worth it in the end....

Graphic Design?

What is graphic design? Graphic design is a creative process — most involving a client and a designer and usually trying to convey a certain message. For example, magazines, bussiness cards and even advertisement posters. Graphic design does not only interest me, it's my desired career. My mentor is Mrs. Callicoate our web design and graphic design teacher here at Lindenwold High School, she has taught me everythingI've known. This is my fourth year of graphic design and have gotten better as the years go on. To making our LHS play posters and shirts to the yearbook, I have gotten better at what i like to do. Graphic design is your creativity inside just trying to burst out and can release by graphic design. In graphic design we use different programs such as Photoshop, Idesign and Illustrator. In these programs you can make magazines, layouts and even photo retouch. In Senior Project I plan to learn further things to do in graphic design than what I know now.
