Elaijah's Story

My passion is art. I was always taught to express my emotions and feelings through art. At a young age, I was able to draw out my emotions and how I was feeling. During my freshmen year of high school, I took Ms. Carr's class, where she taught me how to draw portraits and more realistic drawings. Attending UConn Pre-College Summer Program would allow me to discover more about art and see beyond art and help me set a life path for me. Not only would it help me discover more about art but also more about myself.

A Note from Ms. Carr, Elaijah's Teacher

Elaijah has always been an engaging and active participant in anything she chooses to do. She will have much to add to UConn Pre-College Summer Program and those around her.

Elaijah is one of the most positve and uplifting students I have ever met. The joy she experiences when creating art fills a room. Any time I have offered special opportunities, she has participated with enthusiasm. She works on extra projects at home, always coming up with her own ideas. Elaijah advocates for herself and her interests.
