“I chose to go to Scripps in part because of its art history program. I also chose to enroll because I knew that I would graduate from Scripps a self-assured, driven young woman, equipped for whatever followed. I tried to keep an open mind about my major, but after my first art history course, I knew I’d found my major and my passion. And after four years of engaging classes and internships, I graduated with confidence and curiosity and committed to pursuing a career in the art world. In particular, my internship at the Gallery and the incredible mentorship of Mary MacNaughton helped me develop intellectual and professional goals.”
