Learning had never been that difficult to me. I’ve had struggles with certain topics in school, but I’ve always found ways for me to learn them. That all changed when I entered high school. High school is completely different from lower levels of education because it focuses on testing rather than teaching. Once I realized that high school was only a passing point to get to college, I wasn’t happy because I truly enjoy the process of learning. It became more difficult to understand information. During sophomore year, I began taking art classes. I’ve always been creative, but was never interested in arts. After taking a second level drawing class, I began seeing art as a language and way of thinking. The artwork above is titled “…but we love each other!” In 2013, I became very passionate about domestic violence because my sister was murdered by her boyfriend. The artwork is closest to my heart and reminds me of the moment I figured out art was my passion. I created “…but we love each other” for my final project in drawing class. The class helped me find a new way of learning, which has influenced the way I handle school assignments and other aspects in life. By finding my passion for art, I now know that I am more of a visual and tactile learner. It’s easier for me to understand something through images and processes. For example, if I forget a piece of information while taking a test, I try to remember where it was on my study guide. Finding out what type of learner you are is important because it helps you understand how you see the world.
