Kristen is a freshman just beginning her first year at Biola, as a Studio Art Major! She is approaching her degree with an interdisciplinary concentration, specifically photography and design, in hopes of becoming a freelance photographer/graphic designer. One of her biggest goals is to move out of the country to either Australia or Copenhagen and work as a full-time artist after graduating from her schooling. She was born and raised in So-Cal and enjoys surfing during her free time, along with capturing moments on film photography, grabbing coffee, and reading. During the time of COVID, Kristen has found joy in cradling her large cat, listening to Smokey Robinson, and has recently picked up the practice of yoga. For those interested in the Enneagram, Kristen is a proud 4w3, and labels herself as a shy extrovert.
