Breny Recinos Argueta studied art at The Catholic University of America.
How did you discover your passion for art?
I discovered my passion when I took my first digital art class with Professor Monaghan. Things just clicked for me. I knew I was in the right place when I was having fun and doing work on my own time just to learn more.
What’s your favorite part about creating?
My favorite part about creating is seeing the final project. After spending so many hours working on a project, it is really rewarding to see the results and everything you have learned.
What’s the hardest part for you about creating?
The hardest part is definitely learning how to use new technology while trying to meet a deadline. It is easy to have a vision of what you want to create, but it is very difficult to make it happen when you are learning something new.
What has been your favorite part of this college?
My favorite part of The Catholic University of America is the amount of attention I get from my professors; it is incredible. Because my class is small, I get a lot of individual attention. Whether I need help on a project or career advice, the professors are always happy to assist. I owe MUCH of my growth to my art professors.
How do you think this program will help in what you want to do next?
I honestly believe that when I graduate, I will have the skills to enter the workforce. I want to pursue a career in digital marketing and what I know now is enough to easily land a job.
Where do you imagine yourself in 10 years?
I see myself doing creative marketing for a company that is ethical and reputable-- I want my work to help spread a good message. I am drawn to companies whose campaigns are all about self-love.
