I went to my first volleyball practice when I was nine years old and I haven’t stopped playing since. Sport has taught me that if you want to be good at something, you have to practice and practice and practice. I was born in Slovakia, but after spending my junior year of high school in the United States, I was offered an athletic scholarship to Portland State University. I have always been creative, so I have loved earning an undergraduate degree in graphic design with a minor in printmaking. I am particularly passionate about illustration and am looking forward to attending university in Britain to earn a master’s degree.
