1. How do you feel about your college acceptance? For my college acceptance, I feel mostly relieved and surprised, mostly because I felt I didn't have much of a chance for a lot of the schools I applied to when I first wrote them down. Overall, I've been quite satisfied with the colleges that I got into.

2. Why did you choose your major? I chose graphic design as a major because I admire how it cooperates a lot of ideas into it, like technology.

3. What was the most difficult aspect of your portfolio preparation? The most difficult part of my portfolio preparation was probably the middle part. When you first start a portfolio, it is very exciting, and when you finish it, it is relieving, but when you are in the middle, it feels there are a lot of problems going on and it was very difficult for me to keep going.

4. What is your favorite artwork that you made? My favorite artwork is my UI app design because I admire how I could apply technology to my work, and I found it really exciting to make something I see in everyday life with phone apps.

5. Do you have any advice for the new portfolio students? My advice for portfolio students would be just keep going. I myself, I really didn't like working and I did not feel encouraged to keep going because I had the feeling that I'd been working on that for a long time. But I promise that if you keep going and keep putting in the effort. It'll make your results more satisfying.
