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