Jared Kotter, a recent graduate who majored in advertising, shared this experience with us:
"A large part of my experience at BYU is credited to being on the BYU Men's Lacrosse Team. I have made new life-long friends. I have traveled all over the country. I have been injured and healed. I've struggled and I've won. I played in a National Semi-final game, and hope to play for a National Championship this May."
"I've learned more about life, leadership, and myself. And I've had the time of my life. I've lived a dream. This was my dream growing up, and I did it. As that dream comes to an end, now I pursue new dreams. And in large part, I have BYU and BYU lacrosse to thank for pushing me towards the next dreams. Here's to chasing and accomplishing dreams."

Gabriel Mayberry, a recent graduate majoring in public relations, shares that his college experience has been greatly shaped by the opportunities he had while working for University Communications.
"My experience at Brigham Young University was pretty unique thanks to my student photography job at BYU Photo. I sat inches away from athletes winning nail-biting games, saw the wonder in the eyes of new students hiking the “Y”, and felt a hint of anxiety performers faced before they amazed hundreds of spectators. Telling the university story in such a unique way was a privilege I’ll never forget."

Jessica Jensen Walker from Cache Valley, Utah graduated with a BA in dance education in April. She was chosen to speak for the spring 2021 convocation on behalf of the BYU Department of Dance.
Before she came to BYU, Jessica Jensen Walker took dance classes and was a mainstay in her high school drill team at Mountain Crest High in Hyrum. She enjoyed her time dancing but never considered it to be a possible career choice. When she began her courses at BYU, the dance classes she participated in completely changed her perspective.
“I originally auditioned for the dance education major, but was accepted into the dance Bachelor of Arts program. After some time, I realized I did want the education component as well. I decided to pursue education because I really love teaching,” Walker said.

"When I was a freshman in High School, I knew exactly what I wanted to study and how long it would take me to graduate. Well, to my surprise, God had different plans for me. I didn’t get into the major I wanted, and after getting rejected time and time again, I finally declared a degree in Music Education. Realizing that that degree also wasn’t for me, I created my own: the Bachelor of Arts with an emphasis in Contemporary Voice Performance. It is now an official major that anyone can apply to, and I am very proud of that."
"I didn’t quite fit in any specific box and BYU allowed me to draw my own. As I approach graduation, I am confidently going towards what I know is going to be a successful future, thanks to my time at BYU.”

“I think being a BYU student has helped give me some clarity on what I actually want to do in my life. It’s been a blessing because I’ve taken so many different classes, that I’ve been able to see trends and things that I enjoy and help develop myself as a person.” 
“I think the biggest thing I’ve learned is that creativity is hard but incredibly rewarding. I’m moving to Huntington Beach CA after graduation and hopefully working at an advertising agency. Eventually I’d like to start my own business. We’ll see how it goes from there."

Meet Fiona Barney, another recent graduate with a BA in art. Barney was one of two students who represented @byuart in the 2021 CFAC convocation. During her experiences studying at BYU, Barney had several opportunities to step out of her comfort zone. From traveling to Scotland to teaching high schoolers, her education has truly followed the BYU motto “The world is our campus.”
“In the art education program, the professors go out of their way to create unique ways for students to learn,” said Barney. “For example, I went to Scotland a year and a half ago for a study abroad, and while there we learned how to weave.”
Currently, Barney’s campus experience has expanded to include American Fork High School, where she works teaching art to the students.

Rachel Allen Everett recently graduated with a BFA in illustration. As a child, Everett struggled with reading. Her strong visual leanings kept her away from books until she found collections of graphic novels on the bookshelves of her junior high classroom. Clive Barker’s ‘The Thief of Always,’ and Jeff Smith’s ‘Bone’ became cherished literature.
“I was drawn to pursue comics after seeing a one-page story by BYU alum Jake Wyatt in an anthology of comics by BYU alumni,” said Everett. 
For years, Everett dreamed of making her own graphic novel. When the time came for her to create her Capstone project, the culminating work of her undergraduate degree, it was the perfect opportunity for her to start bringing her vision to life.

Gwen Davis-Barrios is a recent BYU graduate from @byuart who doesn’t remember a time when art wasn’t a part of her life. “Art has been a guiding hand ever since I can remember,” she said. “I think it’s a good companion to help me process the world, life and relationships.”
Some of Davis-Barrios’ favorite memories from the art department were the field trips she took to the Spiral Jetty in Salt Lake. These trips were often taken with guest artists from across the nation. 
“There is something about returning to this location with different combinations of people from the department that is really interesting and unique,” she said. “While Utah may be considered to be a cultural backwater, there are these mysterious art places like the Spiral Jetty and the Sun Tunnels.”

Amanda Lund just graduated last week with a BFA in graphic design, yet she already has quite the jump start on her career. Lund has worked with e.l.f. Cosmetics to create designs featured on the shelves of Target and is currently an intern for Javas Lehn Studios, a design firm based in New York City working for hotels and publications. 
Lund's passion for art and design came after she took her first art class during her freshman year at BYU. Since then, she has used that passion for design to guide her in other avenues of her life, including her drive for inclusivity in design. Her capstone project entitled “Designing for Every Body, Not the Average Body” is dedicated to aiding those with disabilities. Lund ultimately hopes to use her design skills to make the world a more inclusive place.

Greg Smith from Pampa, Texas will graduate in April with a BA in piano performance. Smith has his own personal motto: “I place the Eternal before me.” #CFACgrad 
It comes from a Hebrew proverb in Steve Reich’s “You Are (Variations).” “I have found that as I place God before me at all times, I am more likely to make inspired decisions that will lead to a fulfilling life,” Smith said.
He is one of two students chosen to represent the School of Music for the 2021 convocation. He will provide the piano accompaniment for a vocal performance of Rachmaninoff’s “Spring Waters” by senior Josie Larsen.

The road to graduation looks different for every student. This truth especially hits home for senior Alyssa Aramaki, who will represent the Department of Theatre and Media Arts for spring 2021 convocation. #CFACgrad
“My journey has not been the traditional four-year path,” she said, in part due to difficulties with anxiety and depression. “I had several semesters where I was just floating, surviving, taking part-time classes to keep going. It was a huge struggle for a while."
Aramaki’s message to her fellow graduates is one of optimism. "We never need to feel like we’re behind or too old or missing out. All of our journeys look different. For everyone who has made it this far, now they just need to take the next step."

Josie Larsen is one of two students chosen to represent the School of Music for the 2021 convocation. She will record a vocal performance of “Spring Waters” by Rachmaninoff, with senior Greg Smith on piano.
Her interest in singing began at age 11, and while Larsen's vocal talent speaks for itself, she wasn't always sure if it was a good fit. But after praying for guidance, she knew that singing would be a vital part of her future. Larson is now on course to graduate this week with a BA in vocal performance. She is also the president of the BYU Singers, the top choral group in the School of Music, of which she has been a member since her freshman year. Throughout her years as an undergraduate, Larsen's passion for music has only grown.
“It’s something I have to hold on to and rediscover over and over again,” she said. “Like anything in the arts, it’s easy to get weighed down. I hope that my two-minute performance will encourage people to go forward with hope and faith and continue to do what they love.”

Chloe Hague is graduating with a major in Media Art Studies from @byutma.
"I have always been interested in Media Arts. When I found out that BYU offered a program in it, I was so excited! I was really nervous to move away from my family in Kansas at 18 years old to pursue this degree at first because it seemed so far away from what I knew to be home. But when I met all my roommates that first semester, I knew everything was going to be okay. I will always remember my first semester at BYU because of them, and I express my gratitude for all the support that I received from them at the times I needed it most."
Hauge was able to participate in many student films and is currently working on a student documentary film called, "Bethesda." "Some of the greatest things working on these projects has taught me are patience and kindness towards one another. In this way, I have had my faith strengthened too. BYU has allowed me to pursue my interests in a safe, friendly, spiritually inspiring environment with people that I will continue to maintain relationships in the future," she said. 
"It has allowed me to foster an interest in people and their stories and to hear everyone's voices loud and clear, as well as to become aware of issues in the field that still need to be addressed. Throughout the program, I was able to explore my specific interest in editing film, and this is what I am choosing to pursue in my career. Overall, I am eternally grateful for my experiences at BYU, and will continue to remember them throughout my career and life."

Anna Tanner is graduating with a major in Music Dance Theatre from @byutma! 
"During my time as a Music Dance Theatre major, there are two experiences that I will never forget. First, I loved being a member of the BYU Young Ambassadors for two years (2017-2019). Second, was my summer internship in New York City with Open Jar Institute in 2019. As a Young Ambassador I had the opportunity to tour around the Western United States and internationally to China. I was apart of the China spectacular, where we got to travel and perform with several other performing groups on campus. I’m grateful I was able to meet people from all over the world and share my love of the gospel with them through singing and dancing. My internship in New York City gave me the opportunity to participate in workshops and interact with broadway directors and choreographers."
"These experiences gave me valuable skills and unforgettable memories. I am excited for what lies ahead in my future. I look forward to continued growth, as I take my next steps forward. I will continue teaching piano, vocal, and dance lessons to children, performing in shows, and have recently been accepted to graduate school!"

It can be a frustrating process with so many variables at play, and some days you just can’t get the chemicals to cooperate. You have to learn to shrug off the mistakes and continue moving forward. When you finally do make the image you envisioned, it is all the more rewarding!”
