What attracted you to Vox Culture?
I was inspired by Vox's purpose. Inspired by its commitment to help the community through various avenues while maintaining the integrity of your institution. Inspired by the group of advocates and leaders in Vox. When I see a group of immigrants on a board attempting to eradicate different issues plaguing their current society, it is inspiring. Vox Culture seems unique and its design worth learning about. An amalgamation of arts (something that connects communities) and social causes (something that plagues communities) seemed, again, inspiring. This is what has led me to apply. I wanted to be part of such an experience. I could say: I want to give back, engage with society, make a difference etc. but that wouldn’t encompass the possibilities your organization will provide.
What is you favorite sweet?
Anything chocolate works! But if you want to get specific: I love gooey chocolate chip cookies and hot pecan pie with cold vanilla ice cream.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
The power to heal. I would love to be able to cure people of their ailments. Or be like Captain Planet!
What is a social topic that you feel most passionate about?
That's a tough one. I want to help everyone, everything that lives on this planet (including the planet). But if I had to pick one it would have to be Education.
What is a form of art that you appreciate the most?
5) I enjoy Post-Impressionism. Mainly because I love the fact that the Post-Impressionist movement has components of Realism, vividness of Impressionism and early traces of Expressionism. It suits my eclectic taste in art.
