I have also taken many studio classes such as Adult Oil Painting, the study of the Figure, Advanced Drawing, Film Photography, and Printmaking.

At Queens University of Charlotte, I have been awarded over $34,000 worth of scholarships annually, including art and art history scholarships based on merit. I am a member of the Art Club, Photography Club, Dance Club, President's Club, and Phi Mu female fraternity. 

I am the current president of Bella Faraasha - cultural belly dance club where I run auditions, practices, and set performances for such charities as the Alexander Youth Network, American Heart Association, and Juvenile Diabetes Fund. We are trying to set a campus-wide foundation for positive body-image and good self-worth.
