At Animas I have so much more opportunity to be creative. Having a creative outlet in school is so important to me because my creative process and academic process are deeply intertwined. Incorporating art in projects helps me connect to the content more. Also at Animas I can incorporate climbing into my scheduled more freely. Taking the climbing x-block allows me to show my passion at school. It is really cool that at Animas there is a climbing community that I can be a part of.
