Hi, I’m Evelyn Yaskin and I am a freestyle student in digital media and design! Prior to this class, I wasn’t really exposed to computer art and media but I’m super excited to get started and to see where my creative abilities can take me. I’m so lucky to have amazing teachers and fellow students to experiment with all aspects of digital art and media. I’m so excited for all the fun projects we get to do this year!
Outside of freestyle, I can be seen playing tennis, participating in Model UN, or getting involved with my Jewish community. I am extremely passionate about community service and spreading what’s important to me through public speaking. I get so excited about anything when it comes to helping my community.
Additionally, I’ve been really involved in music for the past few years now. I’ve been playing piano for about 4 years, I play guitar as well, and I was part of the Mountain View High Choir and a Jewish choir called Hazamir. Music always gets me through the day and I can’t express my appreciation for it enough.
When it comes to college, my dream is to go somewhere in the east coast, and I want to pursue a career called UX design, it’s basically a mix between digital media and computer science, UX designers develop anything from apps to new physical products.
What I really enjoy in the art aspect is photography and being able to make something so simple come to life. I took a photography class in middle school and ever since then I’ve been really inspired by all different types of styles in photography and I can’t wait to show what I can do! I really value all the opportunity we get to be creative in freestyle, this is so important for people to be able to express their true ideas and values through their artwork. Additionally, I love reading and writing poetry and I’m so glad that we get to spend time in English to work and develop our poetry writing skills.
