CHEYENNE THAYER | UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
I am a sponge.
I live, breath, dream, absorb and exude art.
College has transformed me into an avid television show junkie, celebrity gossip follower, and design enthusiast. I love fashion. I love photography. I cannot survive without my Canon EOS 60D, my MacBook Pro, or my iPod and headphones.
I am half-Californian, half-Oregonian. And I can respectively say with confidence:
I work at the Annual Giving Program for the University of Oregon as a student fundraiser. As a sophomore, I received the Diversity Excellence Scholarship. I was awarded the scholarship because I strongly value diversity and am proud to represent the Latino community at Oregon.
My scholarship encourages pride and service; because of this, I am a mentor for Latino youth in Eugene.
Social networking allows me the freedom to write like I know what I’m talking about, share ideas that others also care about, and connect with people. Today, everyone is capable of being connected. I take advantage of social media in every way I can.
Creativity is more valuable than anything.
I have always gravitated towards creative outlets such as singing, playing instruments, listening to music, drawing, writing, photography, graphic design, and fashion. I want to spend my life being creative.
I have failed in some of my pursuits, but each failure brings me closer to a new, brilliant idea.
