Hello, I am Aliya Cheeks. I am in the 10th grade. I’ve been at BYA for 2 months. The classes I take at BYA are Graphic Design, Screen Printing, and Product Development. In Graphic Design, I am learning about fonts and how to utilize different programs. In Screen Printing, I am learning to display art on shirts, bags, and paper. In Product Development I am learning to build my own product and make zines. My favorite project is called Free to be me. This inspired me because I feel free to be myself all the time. I am not afraid of any one opinion on me. My favorite part of the Studio Apprentice Program is collaborating with my coworkers and bonding together while getting paid. I want to better my skills in Graphic Design. I am getting better at using photoshop.
