The majority of my high school electives were art classes. I got an enhanced degree in Fine Art and School Publications. I then went on to art school at the Art Institute of Salt Lake. I also run my own art business where I teach painting classes and do commissioned art pieces. I have participated in street fairs and conventions promoting and selling art and have been active in the art culture of Utah. I am also deeply involved in the idea of humanities and I believe it is the main reason I am involved in politics. I believe that we should be forging a future that protects and creates a better quality of life for everyone. I value the fair treatment of everyone over any special interest group and believe it is our governments' job to do the same. I recently attended a humanitarian awards ceremony for Amitov Ghosh and believe in his teachings and ideas that we need to create a society around the idea of environmentalism.

 

Explanations/Comments:

The policies you asked about in the survey I am not well versed in. If there are issues with those policies not providing enough support or limiting support to our arts culture then I would love to address and fix those issues. I believe that a healthy society needs art and culture and that politics should focus on more humanitarian issues then they currently do.
