My name is Zuri Chung and I was born in Los Angeles, California. My dream was to go to art school in New York City since the seventh grade. I went to Northwest School of the Arts in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina because I felt like there would be more opportunities there to learn art. I then got into to the two-year art high school program at North Carolina School of the Arts for my junior and senior year. It was an extremely professional and intense program. We had exhibitions, installations, and amazing professors to help us be professional and inspired artists. Ever since then, I knew I wanted to learn more about 2-d design. I am now a freshman at Parsons the New School for Design and majoring in Communication Design.
