6. What are your reasons for taking this class?
I was very interested in learning more about photography as well as working with youth. This is a great course for fulfilling my “Fine Arts” requirement while keeping in line with my Public Service Major.

7. Explain your idea of community:
Community to me is most visible through the coming together of people. I like to think of community in terms of Big events that affect everyone. Births, Deaths, Celebrations and the food and events that accompany them.

8. Who is your City Art Artist buddy? Aileen, She’s Great!

9. What is your service experience (scope of service experience): I have paticipated in many different service experiences. My main work has been with high school aged students and has been related to education and service-learning. In addition I have been on many “service-trips” to work on physical building of homes, churches and schools. Each trip whether Secular or Religious has worked to form my opinion on the necessity of Service.

10. Do you have any previous connection to South Providence community?
I do not have any prior connection to the South Providence community directly. I have however worked with several high school students in the past who have come from the area.

11. What is your favorite part of the Providence (Providence College) Community?
The “Family-like” atmosphere. I came in as a transfer student and was quickly welcomed and felt at home. I especially feel this through the Feinstein department of Public Service.

12. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were your buddy’s age?
When I was young I did not dream about the future. Instead, I concerned my self with living life to the fullest at the current time. I wish I was still so care-free!

13. Did you ever take any art classes when you were younger?
I was lucky enough to have Art classes from pre-school to eighth grade. My Art teacher was a great mentor to me ( even though I have never been very artistic)

14. Was there art in your school?
It was mandatory in elementary school but I was unable to take it in High School.

15. What is the place of art in a community?
The art of a community reflects its freedom and the respect that each community puts on its subgroups and individuals.

16. What is the place of art, specifically in your own community?
My town is known for hosting “shakespeare on the sound” a local production of a play held on the water in my town every summer.
