Creativity has always been emphasized in my life, and Chapman has done nothing but grow it. I am a Film Production major with an emphasis in Cinematography and a minor in Visual Effects. Being born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai’i, I value family, collaboration, and conversation. Back home, I work at The Disney Store, and serve with the video team at my church. I enjoy painting and quality time with loved ones. Oh, and did I mention cotton candy ice cream?
