Why did you choose Point Park? 

I chose Point Park because of its location as well as what it has to offer: the opportunity to study my passion.

How does Pittsburgh differ from other cities you have visited?

You get a small town feel in a large city. For me, it is different from New York (where it is chaotic.) It is much more calm here, which I like. The people are also some of the kindest people I have ever met.

How does living at Point Park differ from your home? 

I am given more freedom here because my mother is not around to tell me what to do. I have way more independence.

What is your favorite thing to do in Pittsburgh? 

My favorite thing to do is visit the museums and go on walks. I love seeing all the different places and discovering something new every day.

What changes have you noticed in yourself since moving to Pittsburgh? 

I noticed that I am way more independent now that I am living on my own. I’ve done it for almost three years. I’ve also realized how (much) happier I am because I am doing what I love in a great city.

How often do you visit home during the school year? 

I only go home for Thanksgiving and Christmas break. It’s too far of a trip to go home every weekend.

Describe your experience living in Pittsburgh in one word.

Transformative.
