To complete my online education with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online Division with a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography and get a part time position with an established studio to assist me in gaining experience. Within a few years of my completing the program and working for other developed studios to gain experience, I would like to open my own photography studio, which would allow for me to venture out into other realms of photography.

I am currently studying photography at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online Division, where my major is in Photography. I have always enjoyed photography and have a talent for making outstanding photographs.

Other Experience
Pepsi Cola Customer Service Center
PO Box 10
Winston Salem, NC 27102
Dates: August 1995 to February 1998
Positions Held: Cash Applications Clerk, Accounts Receivable Clerk and File Clerk.
Position Duties: I also was Accounts Receivables Clerk for the Las Vegas, NV area, which was the major job held within the company. I worked directly with the customers in Nevada and field agents at the local distribution centers. I was involved in applying cash to accounts throughout the United States, which included talking and communicating with customers within all fifty states. I also held a temporary position as a file clerk in the scanning department. There we scanned invoices into the computer system and filed them according to the department regulations.
Reason for Exit: To stay at home with two young daughters, who are now 17 and 13 years old.

Personal Statement:
I attended High School where I studied Office Occupations and dabbled in amateur photography, writing my Senior Term Paper on the subject of Photography. I then automatically entered into the workforce upon graduation, I was not able to attend college because of family finances. Because the clerical field was not of interest to me, I went from one job to another trying to find satisfaction and a position that would allow me to use my creative abilities. When my youngest daughter was born, she had many complications and was often ill. So, I decided to leave the workforce and become a stay at home mother. My oldest daughter entered her first year of High School in 2008, exactly 20 years from the date that I graduated and from the same High School, I might add. My family then began to encourage me to pursue my passion of photography. I then began to research schools to find a college that would best suit my needs. Finding The Art Institute was a blessing. I am able to study part time on the fascinating field of Photography and now that my children are older, I am able to start applying for part time positions to aid in financing my education.
