I am Pooja Arshanapally and I am a junior at Bradley University. I majoring in Interactive Media with a concentration of Web and Applications Design. Through out my years, I always had a passion for art and a compassion for helping people. The reason I needed to be an Interactive Media major is because I needed a creative outlet. The ability to create individual innovations and seeing it come to life is what I realized what I was searching for.
Ever since I was little, art, in different forms, was always a part of my life. At the age of five I discovered the art of writing. The ability to express your thoughts down onto paper was just unfathomable to me and seeing the words come to life is the reason why I have never stopped writing. Similar to writing, I found other ways to express myself through singing, playing the piano, drawing, and photography.
Another passion of mine is for serving others. I had always had that drive and ambition to help others in any sort of way from playing with kids to talking to the elderly. Through the years I hope to combine these two passions into the career path that I will fulfill.
I took this picture when I was in Bloomington, Illinois at the restaurant The Garlic Press. I looked at all of the bottles at the counter and it was aesthetically pleasing, because of how vibrant the colors were displayed. I then decided to edit the picture so that it would look like it was mirrored.
I took this picture when I was in Charleston, South Carolina. It was in the downtown area of South Carolina. It was during March and the flowers started to bloom and it was a scenic place to take a picture of. In Photoshop I inverted the colors and it completely changed into a fantasy world.
