My Name is Marie-Pia Bonnot and I’m 18 years old. I’m originally French, but I lived in Belgium for eight years before moving to Memphis TN two years ago. I always had a big interest in art and design, but I had a lot more opportunities to exploit my passion and my skills when I moved to the US. It gave me the chance to discover all of these new techniques and medium within the art field, and I found that I was particularly interested in the world of graphic design; in the past two years, I had the chance to design over 20 different posters and t-shirts for my school, advertising for various school events as the theater plays and musicals, the dances, prom etc. After finding this new passion and developing my skills, I really want to persevere in it and study Graphic Design and Advertising in college, and hopefully work in this field.
