I’m a Music Education major attending The University of Oklahoma. I’ve always been into sketching and I do commission artwork when I’m not studying music. Until this past year and a half I was never really into societal issues and American Indian and US citizenship issues until I took a expository writing class over Citizenship (US focused).
